"I have resided in Shelton since 1976. As a native Mexican and now U.S. citizen, I have made Shelton the home for me and my five children. As an active member with the Hispanic community, I have witnessed an awesome growth in Shelton's Hispanic population. It has always been my dream to open a tortilla factory in Shelton and show members of the community, both Hispanic and non-Hispanic, that the American dream is alive and open to all who are willing to reach for it! With my partner's help, I plan to make Tortilleria Jalisco a thriving contribution to the community of Shelton and to its greatly diversifying population."
