SUBMITTED BY HARVEY MCWHORTERCouncilman Johnny Watson sees a way to help stem some of the flow of refugees fleeing to America for asylum. The answer may lie in developing business/trade opportunities between Aurora and El Salvador, the latter whom opened a consulate in Aurora in May, 2017. It is the first consulate in Colorado to be located outside of Denver.
By leading a business trade mission of city officials and businesspeople to El Salvador to open negotiations and explore the idea of bringing sustainable businesses to El Salvador and for El Salvador to bring sustainable businesses back to Aurora.
People in both El Salvador and America will benefit from such an exchange. First is creating decent paying jobs in El Salvador so people can stay in El Salvador where they can provide for their families instead of fleeing to America, creating a better future for El Salvador and its citizens. Second is on the American side of the border, bringing new job creation to allow Aurora residents to find work. It is a win – win opportunity for Aurora and El Salvador!
El Salvador officials are embracing the opportunities this business trade mission can bring. Councilman Watson knows that every possible effort should be made to repair and build America’s leadership role, while being a problem solver in things that are ailing our world, and Aurora can play a major role in doing this.
El Salvadorian officials are rolling out a great ‘coming together’ experience for the Aurora mission team. The Vice President wants to be on hand with other important and influential members of the El Salvadorian government and members of the largest business chamber in Central America are all motivated and excited to start a new chapter in beneficial business relationships with Aurora, Colorado and America. El Salvador also has the largest airport in Central America which is great for developing more commerce efficiency.
City Councilman Johnny Watson is an At Large candidate for election this November. He has helped bring some important programs like Affordable housing projects to Aurora, homeless programs and temporary housing for the homeless. He is also pursuing job training programs for high school students and young adults in the aerospace and the trade industries. He is also working to help our aging population live in place with targeted services to help them do just that. Councilman Watson also believes in attracting financial institutions that will work with the underserved citizens of Aurora. He is a special person whose heart is for Aurora.
This trade mission is another example of Councilman Watson’s ability to think in and out of the box to make sure Aurora is one of the best run and most financially secure cities in the nation.
