Sandoval-CharrosSAN FRANCISCO, CA – State Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago) was the guest of honor at the annual Federation of Charros conference where he was recognized for his hard work and dedication as a statesman.

“I thank the Federation of Charros for their continued effort to promote and preserve the rich traditions of Mexican and American Rodeo and it’s culture,” said Senator Sandoval. “Community involvement is a big part of this organization and as long as I am able, the Federation can count on me for support.”

Charros dedicate countless hours of training and spend thousands of dollars to learn and execute official competition in a controlled, safe and professional manner. Mexican rodeo has extensive rules of competition and animal welfare that ensure a reasonably safe environment for all competitors and livestock. Contemporary competition and safety rules are very similar to American rodeo.

“I continue to be inspired by President Dominick and his administration, by their calls to my Springfield and district offices, to make sure the people of Cicero are not forgotten. Whether it’s five million dollars for Morton College or four million dollars for the new aquatic center, rehabilitation of the Laramie Ave. Bridge, rehabilitation of the 31st St. Bridge, the rehabilitation of the Central Ave. overpass, or the Wirtz Beverage building – all projects I’ve been asked to help with.” said Sen. Sandoval. “I’m here today to award you a check of $200,000 for any capital improvements you or the town see fit.”
