EL CENTRO — Imperial County’s 2020 theme of “Honoring Our Heritage While Building Our Future” was evident from a video presented to guests in front of the Imperial County Courthouse Thursday night.

After the video, Imperial County Supervisor Chairman Luis Plancarte spoke from an eight-page statement on what the county has accomplished and what it hopes to accomplish going forward.
