Pinning down a word to describe late Pct. 4 County Commissioner Zaragoza “Shorty” Salinas has been difficult to do for those closest to him. However, the servant leader that many knew him as would say although he is a person who was small in stature, his faith and heart were larger than life.

Salinas died on July 28 due to complications of COVID-19 at the age of 72.
