From the beginning, Dr. John R. Guerra has said his campaign to become the next mayor of Mission is a grassroots effort.
Never was that more clear than when the 30-day campaign finance reports were submitted April 10. From January through April 10, Guerra spent $12,100, a fraction of what incumbent Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas and challenger Jaime Gutierrez spent during the same time period.
Salinas took out $75,000 in loans and took in another $50,400 in contributions. He spent $102,000. Meanwhile, Gutierrez received $58,000 in contributions and spent $56,000.
Neither Salinas or Gutierrez returned calls for comment.
