Senior citizens invited to meet and greet dinner with slew of local candidates

Southside Community Center is rallying all candidates in the San Marcos and Hays County elections to gather for a “Meet and Greet” dinner at Sunrise Village Retirement Community on Wednesday the 29th at 6:00 pm.  All senior citizens across Hays County are invited, and encouraged to attend.

This is a great opportunity for local seniors to come out and meet the big decision-makers in their area.  Candidates will have a platform to speak a little about themselves and their campaign to the seniors.  Seniors can pose any questions or concerns they may have about local issues to the candidates. 

So far, the following candidates will be in attendance at the “Meet and Greet” dinner:

Susan Narvaiz for Mayor; Dave Newman for Mayor; Daniel Dan McCarthy for Mayor; Fred A. Terry for Council Member Place 3; Chris Jones for Council Member Place 4; Lisa Marie Coppoletta for Council Member Place 4; Luanne Caraway for County Tax Accessor; Robert Avera for County Tax Accessor; Nick Ramus for County Commissioner Pct. 1; Debbie Gonzales Ingalsbe for County Commissioner Pct. 1; Bill Wyatt for County Commissioner Pct. 1; Will Conley for County Commissioner Pct. 3; Steve Klepfer for County Commissioner Pct. 3; Rodney VanOudekerke for Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Place 1; Jo Anne Prado for Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Place 1; Matt Mancillas III for Constable Pct. 5; Allen Bridges for Sheriff.

Southside Community Center is waiting on word from the remaining candidates to see if they will be in attendance.  Announcements will be made as these responses come in.

Darrell W. Ayres for Constable Pct. 3 and James H. Kohler for Constable Pct. 2 are unable to attend.

It will not be a debate, but a relaxed “Meet and Greet” mixer over dinner.  Dinner and door prizes will be provided by Southside Community Center.

Sunrise Village Retirement Community is located at 500 Parker Drive, off Broadway, in San Marcos.  The event will be held in the Community Center II building of Sunrise Village.  For directions or more information about the retirement community call (512) 754-7230.

For more information about the event or Southside Community Center, call Yvonne Paris at (512) 392-6694 Ext. 28.

    This decision was based on the low sign-up responses we received from the community. All the candidates were eager to rally together to acknowledge the importance of our senior population and encourage them to use their voice. We appreciate their enthusiasm, and hope to try organizing the event in the future.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
