Mario Lucero, an employee with the Information Technology Services Division within the department of Finance & Administrative Services, is responsible for designing city web programs that whittle hours of work into only minutes.
Lucero goes above and beyond each and every day to assist all who call upon him. With his eager to please and friendly attitude, he is truly a delight to work with.
