February 23 Meeting
It’s fair to say that the February meeting was full of positive energy. Tony Martinez explained the genesis of “We’re In,” the Las Cruces chapter of the Indivisible movement, and invited everyone to a town hall meeting (minus our Congressman). Thirty-one people made 2-minute talks. Eleven events were announced. We heard abut immigration, the wall, issues before our legislators, the courage of our school board and our city council, El Paso’s Electric’s latest plans, safe and sound fireworks, books to read, and movies to see. It was an amazing 100 minutes. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, the events are posted in the sidebar calendar and the recap is here.
The next regular PVA meeting will be Thursday, March 23, 2017, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
