Shoeless Chendo named Hero of Hope recipient

Perhaps Mr. Carranco can wear these to the next council meeting.

A shoeless, local character businessman familiar to Laredo city council meetings for his barefoot appearances has been honored with the Hero of Hope award.

Rosendo "Chendo" Carranco has an obviously impressive record of community involvement. He is especially active in fundraising efforts for the Laredo boys and girls clubs. According to the LMT, "Chendo" has been instrumental in raising about $8 million for this worthy cause.  Congratulations to the shoeless wonder.
