We are in the second week of 2021 and things are moving right along, despite the coronavirus pandemic. We all had to adapt the way we do simple day-to-day activities. “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Our community has done a great job in adjusting and helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We need to continue to exercise the CDC safety protocols to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. With everyone’s help and with the mass distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, COVID 19 will soon be behind us. In the interim, we need to continue to move forward with our lives. We need to continue to work towards reestablishing normalcy to our world. We are living in a world of troubled times. We have witnessed things we never imaged would happen in our country. How we respond to these events will impact how we live our lives. We must think about our families and do what we believe is best for their future. That is how I have and continue to live my life.
As Mayor for our city, my only agenda is to improve the quality of life for the residents of our city in any way I can. Our city’s positive image has drawn the attention of many people and business investors who are now interested in coming to Poteet. My goal is to safeguard the small-town friendly atmosphere while at the same time meeting the needs for our growing community. In the last 20 months, there have been several significant developments in our community, and more are scheduled to be implemented soon. I will keep you informed as things develop. I will continue to devote my energy towards enhancing the quality of life in our community.
Keep safe, Stay Poteet Strong, Gig’em Aggies
