In this case, it is better to be prepared because there will be fierce competition, criticism, and a little of everything else.

The case of Norie Gonzalez Garza is unique. Her community service is a perfect example of how to be a role model. She recently became the mayor of the City of Mission, Texas. Norie earned that privilege by doing things right for many years. She praises the staff at the City of Mission for their work in the past and predicts excellent performance for the future.

Because of this, Judge Cortez’ priorities have changed in this regard, “Goal number one for the prosperity task force is to find out how do we serve the people that we have as best as we can.” Read more about how to join the task force inside.
