CHINO – Although it’s months away, the city’s mayor and two councilmen have their eyes set on the prize – being re-elected to the City Council in the November elections.

Chino’s Mayor Dennis Yates – who will be entering his 20th year on the council – said the elections this year will be significant.

Yates said he’ll be getting the word out early in 2012 about re-seeking his seat in the Nov. 6 General Election, as well as encouraging voters to re-elected council members Tom Haughey and Glenn Duncan.

“We hope this team will be re-elected and continue to move the city forward because we all have a lot of experience,” said Yates, who is in his third term as mayor.

“Our city continues to do good things and we would like to continue that routine.”

Haughey was elected to the council in 2001, while Duncan has been involved with the council since 1992.

Councilman Earl Elrod is serving his fourth term and Councilwoman Eunice Ulloa has been involved with the council since 1984. She has also served as the city’s mayor for 12 years.

Both Elrod and Ulloa’s terms end in 2014.

“The same team has been working here for a while and we understand issues, set policy in the city, we expect staff to give us options and opinions and when it comes to the decisions it is truly made by the council,” Duncan said.

“We think that understanding the issues and knowing how to address the issues that are going to come to us is a huge benefit to the city.”
