Our favorite Congressman Lamar Smith was outstanding as he always is. He gave a great report on what is going on in Washington and I think we could have kept him there all afternoon and not run out of questions for him.
Sheriff Pamerleau, our other featured guest, unfortunately had to be in Austin but the good news is, as you can see by the outside of this newsletter, she will be at Oak Hills Country Club this month. We are also very fortunate to have George Rodriguez, of the South Texas Alliance for Progress, as our other speaker.
Our next big event we are working on is the “non-partisan” San Antonio elections on May 11th. Is there any election that is non-partisan nowadays? Of course not. We all know that currently we only have 3 Republicans on City Council out of 10 Districts and we have a Democrat Mayor. Carlton Soules is the Republican representing District 10, Elisa Chan represents District 9 and retiring Reed Williams, District 8. District 8 is on the table and there is only one of the three candidates who has declared he is a Republican and that is Rolando Briones. You really should look into who you want representing you if you live in Dstrict 8. If you subscribe to the Express News by now you already know that you do not believe everything they report on, especially what they say about Briones. They only report on one side of the story.
We are looking forward to seeing you on the 19th. Invite a friend. Freida Wright
