Quick Bio

Dr. M.V. "Vinny" Mendoza, served as Assistant to the Inspector General of the Air Force during the Gulf War in 1991. Served as Chief of Services at Ballistic Missile Early Warning Systems at Thule AB, GL. Managed an annual operating budget of over $20 Million, over $2 Billion in Real Property & a staff of more than 400 members. I do not appreciate the political circus in the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and The White House--we deserve better representation. We need term limits in Congress and to cut corporate funding from state and federal elections. I'm pro-gun reform!

Choosing Our Leaders

“Mr. Zahn makes $72,000 a year to manage our tax dollars. He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in Festivities for people from other states while we have people without jobs and hungry. He took over $400,000 allocated for the Hispanic Resource Center and used elsewhere. As the Vice-treasurer for 1Love United Methodist Church I guard God's money and I can do the same for your tax dollars!”

Minimum Wage

“To improve the quality of life and take Kenner out of poverty, we must consider increasing the job market for more construction and high tech jobs that can pay up to $15 per hour. I will make every effort to adopt a plan that gradually increases the minimum wage up to $15/hour within 4-years. Additionally, I would consider increasing the salaries for all Police Officers and Firefighters!”

CAMPAIGN CORRUPTION

“Since Corporations are considered PEOPLE, they should have the same campaign contribution limits as the AMERICAN PEOPLE have. The first step to stop government corruption at the Local, State and Federal Level. If we do not want special interest groups to own our elected officials we must begin to support candidates that support all the people of Kenner and not special interest groups.”

LEGAL AGE

“If an 18 year old is old enough to vote & join the military and die for his/her country as an "adult," he or she should then be able to drink and gamble at age 18. An 18 year old that is old enough to die for his/her country should be old enough to purchase a lottery ticket.”
