From Mario A. Guerra, Downey City Councilman:
On March 25, our CHARACTER COUNTS! Citywide Coalition met to honor our fine school district for their Golden Bell Award. We also unveiled our newest street in Downey: Caring Way.
Caring Way and Responsibility Row are now part of our city’s culture and will forever be a part of what we stand for. Our Citywide Coalition involves all aspects of our community. Our school district, city, Aspire, YMCA, youth sports leagues, Police, Fire, churches, and service organizations all work together to teach our youth that character really does matter.
CHARACTER COUNTS! is now a permanent part of our DNA and we are a better community because of it.
