Fighting Crime

(Jan. 23, 2012)  In response to a recent attack on a jogger in Century City last week, District I Council Member Mike Garza is hosting a neighborhood meeting tonight, Monday, January 23, 2012, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Century City Park Entrance, located at 120 Century Boulevard.

Present at the meeting will City of Laredo officials and members of the Laredo Police Department who will be on hand to discuss safety awareness and other safety and precautionary related issues.

“By arming ourselves with information, knowing how to keep safe and being alert for danger, we can all help keep ourselves and our neighborhoods safe, sending a message to any would-be criminal out there, we’re not letting them over our community,” said Cm. Garza.

While I commend Mike Garza for making himself available to the public, I haven't known him to hold a town hall meeting south of Century City.  And of course, he springs into action once a jogger is assaulted in the Century City area.  What I want to know is if the "Bordertown: Laredo" cast members will be there.  If it's somebody who could rally the citizenry, it's them, judging from yesterday's paper.
