February 22 Meeting
The February meeting was truly extraordinary. We started out by hearing from eight of our local legislators. They filled us in on the recent legislative session. The running theme during the Q&A for our legislators and throughout the meeting was safety in our public schools and the topic of gun control. We continued to hear from candidates running for all different sorts of offices: US Congress, Magistrate Judge, District Judge, County Assessor, County Commission, Sheriff, PRC, and State Representative. As you can see, PVA is obviously the place to be if you want to get to know the candidates. We also heard about lots of other topics, including El Paso Electric updates, books to read, and new jobs coming to Dona Ana County in the film industry. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap will be posted shortly.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, March 22, 2018, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
