District 4 Council candidate Evandro Carvalho hosted a campaign stop at the heart of Four Corners on Wednesday morning (Oct. 20), unveiling the new endorsement of State Rep. Nika Elugardo - whose district overlaps with part of District 4. Rep. Elugardo highlighted the economic empowerment plan that Carvalho also rolled out at the campaign stop.

She said they are on the same page with that plan, particularly with City contracts going more often to minority-owned businesses.

"I'm an MIT girl and I have not actually studied it officially, but I've seen rocket science and making sure Black and brown business owners get City contracts is not rocket science. We agree on that...It's my great honor to be here with Evandro and announce my full-fledged endorsement for this young man."

Also in attendance were several trade union representatives, District 5 Councillor Ricardo Arroyo, Register of Probate Felix Arroyo and Sheriff Steve Tompkins - among others.
