Born in Belize, Eleanor Guerrero vividly remembers the date she immigrated to the United States. It was June 6, 1968 — the same day was day presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles.
She established a new milestone date Tuesday. She will remember Nov. 8, 2011, as the day she cast her first vote.
Guerrero, 72, was active in her community even as a child. Her mother served as mayor in her hometown and her father was a district representative.
