Angelo Jaramillo has written about a dozen plays, produced eight of them and acted in more than 40 stage productions. His love of theater (and reading and writing) is reflected in his manner of public speaking: brash and idealistic with a dramatic flair.

During a recent forum, the City Council candidate likened life in the San Ysidro housing development on Santa Fe’s southwest side to “living in the Gaza Strip,” and characterized the city’s unmanned speed-enforcement SUVs as a “cash cow” focused on hassling common folk on their way to work. Asked if he favored a proposed redevelopment of the Rodeo grounds with an indoor arena in the adjoining south-side District 4, he questioned how the space would be used, saying that if it was “just a matter of riding bulls, roping calves and violating animal rights,” other options should be considered.

    It is rare in our culture to product a political candidate that hasn't been beaten into mediocrity. Angelo Jaramillo is the real deal. He is a threat to the compromised powerful and a honest friend of justice and liberty. I don't use those words lightly.

    "“We’re all part of the same blood line. We are part of the same ancestry"
    W in F does that matter Jaramillo when the issue is immigration status, fleecing of our social services, the loss of jobs, increase in crime, and hemorrhaging of our school system under the guise of La Raza.
    The Race. Didn't the Nazi's use the same phrase but not in Spanish.

    Angelo is an inspiration to this old fart political activist ...he's the only person in the election campaign with a good heart. And as far as intelligence is concerned he is a an absolute genius compared to that utterly dumb and slimy Dominguez.
    In this article Angelo is completely right about The New Mexican and Fran Gallegos. The New Mexican came after his mother right from the start and the man-hating gun- toting Witch of a Judge was a brutal vindictive person. I can also attest to his statement about High School having been a substitute teacher in both Schools during that time. God Bless you Angelo for surviving and overcoming that trauma.I also worked helping stop the trashing of the West Alameda neighborhood by Phil Griego and the boys at City Hall. The petition that young Jaramillo worked on was the only time in the last 40 years that a petition by the Citizens of Santa Fe was successful in stopping a tax increase. Go Angelo!
