Mr.. “Shorty” Salinas was an amazing individual and a phenomenal friend to all he met. He was a family friend from our neighborhood, Kingsville Colonia neighborhood, and my Sanchez familia knew him.
I will always remember a very important thing he told me as I signed up to run for Kingsville City Commissioner this 2020, he told me, with sincerity in his heart and a firm handshake, “Don’t give up and we are here to support you.” I say this because that’s the type of person he was, supportive, encouraging and caring.
