particular attention to members of minority groups. These groups are underrepresented in all the different areas of educations, jobs, housing, equal rights, inclusion, and really all basic human needs. This is where Aquiles wants to make a difference if elected to the Position 2 of Portland City Commissioners.
Aquiles is a small business owner, is married to his wife Julie, and both have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. He is currently working for the Portland Metropolitan Family Services as a Family Engagement Resource Administrator. He has also worked for the Portland Public Schools as Mentor/Counselor for Teens, where he was names Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year. He volunteers with the Chamber of Commerce, he also offers his volunteer services as interpreter for different agencies, and also volunteers with the Portland Guadalajara Sisters Cities association.
“The future of our children depends on receiving a great education. Our children represent our future. It is therefore vital that we give them the best possible start by expanding after school programs… to neglect our children is to surrender them to lives of poverty and struggle, and to the influence of gangs,” says Mr. Montas.
“We also need to make it easier for individuals to start and maintain their own business… The growth of our communities depends on having strong, successful small business,” suggests Aquiles.
Latin Media wishes the best to Mr. Montas as a member of our Hispanic community. This writer is happy to see that more members of our Hispanic community are engaging in the political arena at all different levels. We wish Aquiles the best, and we are sure that he is an excellent candidate for Position 2 of the Portland City Commissioners.
