CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO— Vice may­oralty can­di­date Angie Hi­zon is anchoring her cam­paign plat­form on the need to im­ple­ment a thor­ough re­view of the city’s or­di­nances to en­sure im­ple­men­ta­tion and iden­tify ar­eas where laws need fine-tun­ing.

Hi­zon said that an Over­sight Com­mit­tee should be in place to mon­i­tor the im­ple­men­ta­tion of ex­ist­ing and fu­ture lo­cal leg­is­la­tion of the city. This would en­sure that the laws are prop­erly im­ple­mented and would iden­tify the strengths and weak­ness of ex­ist­ing or­di­nances in ac­tual im­ple­men­ta­tion.

The com­po­si­tion and ex­act func­tions of the over­sight com­mit­tee would have to be prop­erly de­ter­mined once the en­abling law for the said com­mit­tee is in place.

The lady vice-may­oralty as­pi­rant is also look­ing at the re­view of ex­ist­ing or­di­nances of the city. The cod­i­fi­ca­tion and up­date of such or­di­nances, she said, would en­able the leg­isla­tive depart­ment to im­ple­ment nec­es­sary up­dates to fit the cur­rent needs of the city.

In ear­lier re­ports, Hi­zon said once given a seat as vice mayor, she pledges changes in the leg­isla­tive depart­ment and “a quick re­sponse” ser­vices for the Fer­nandi­nos.

Hi­zon is run­ning as in­de­pen­dent and has cho­sen to not to ally her­self with po­lit­i­cal forces out of her own con­vic­tions and prin­ci­ples.
