Issue 33 August 13

Our guest speaker last week was State Attorney Melissa Nelson. A lot has happened in her first seven months in office. Among Melissa’s many priorities is establishing a Strategic Prosecution Unit and a Crime Gun Intelligence Center which will allow police to identify the location of gunfire in a neighborhood in tandem with a shell-casing identification database. Prosecutors and law enforcement officers will work together to gather information about offenders. The Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament was a success! Jim Cox was the big winner coming in first place. Holly McAllister came in second and Kelly Dardeau came in third. The money raised from this event funds the Children’s Christmas Shopping Spree. This week our guest speaker is City Council Member Scott Wilson. He will be informing us of all the legislative changes that are happening in District 4’s Southside communities.
