'Twas the day before Thanksgiving....

November 20, 2012

And down at the Advocate, our editors were conferring about topics most adequate.

OK, enough with the lame rhyming. It's time for our weekly editorial board meeting, and this week, we will be joined by the newest addition to the Victoria County Commissioners Court, Commissioner-elect Danny Garcia. We'll be talking with Mr. Garcia about his plans for Precinct 1, as well as how he's preparing for his time as a public servant. As always, our meeting is at 1:30 p.m. in the Internet Cafe area of the Victoria Advocate. You're welcome to come join us or, if you can't get away from the pre-Thanksgiving flurry of preparations, watch online and let us know what you think in the chat box. We look forward to seeing you there.
