I moved here in 1971 from California.  The company I was working for offered me a promotion as a salesman for the new market in Ciudad Juarez (maquiladoras).  It was a decision that I felt at the time, was a good thing to do based on what my family needed.  It was based on economics, meaning that I was probably going to make enough money to give my kids the things that I never had as a child.  Moving to El Paso was the best career decision I have made; it was and is about the future of me and my family.  After I retired I made the decision to stay.  I was born in Sonora, Mexico, raised and became a US citizen in Tucson, Arizona, and began my career in Los Angeles, California.  I traveled extensively throughout the United States, Latin America and especially into Mexico and never once after I moved to El Paso did I ever think I would leave this wonderful city.
