Share your thoughts at this week's Editorial Board meeting

April 8, 2014

Wednesday is here again, and we've got some great topics to discuss at this week's Editorial Board meeting. We've seen what some call a baby chupacabra captured in Ratcliffe in the same week that plans for a new strip mall on Houston Highway were announced. At the same time, we've got plenty of awareness campaigns and fundraiser events coming up in addition to the oil cleanup efforts in Calhoun County along with a 50-acre grass fire. There's a lot to discuss, and we hope you'll join us.

Come join the Victoria Advocate Editorial Board in the Victoria Advocate newsroom conference room at 1:30 p.m. every Wednesday to discuss the events of the previous week. If you can't come to the meeting in person, feel free to log on and watch our live webcast and comment in the online chat box. We look forward to seeing you there.
