FRESNADILLO, AHAO: Georgia Halstead, Mayor of Fresnadillo has launched her campaign for Democratic President amid the unrest in her City. She talked of a tough stance on the “unruly citizens”, at the same time saying that things we just a “bit unsettled”, but said extra funding had been given by the governor to help with the situation. Yet at the same time, she told a senior staff panic “Don’t Panic” as he ran out the door to handle the situation.
However it seems things are much worse than the Mayor made out, as there has been a SWAT helicopter deployed over the city, and there are reports of fierce fighting near the Fresnadillo police station and governor’s residence. The chief of police said he was “Personally involved and in close quarter combat with his officers”.
