Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone presenting Alejandro Zapata with Citizen of the Year 2013
On the night of Saturday, Feb. 22, Mayor Vince Leone presented Alejandro “Hondo” Zapata with a key to the city and the title of Citizen of the Year for 2013 at Slater’s Madison Street Pub in downtown Port Clinton.
“We usually present the award at city hall,” said Mayor Leone, “but for Hondo, I thought this would be a better venue.”
Slater’s was already packed; regular Saturday night patrons and party goers for Stella Lopez’s birthday party which was being held there. Around 10:30 p.m. Mayor Leone, Michelle, Isaiah, Xavier, and Zayden Zapata along with friends and other family parted the sea of patrons to reach Hondo at the front of Slater’s who was DJ-ing.
Mayor Leone read aloud the Proclamation from the Office of the Mayor to Zapata and everyone in Slater’s.
