In the latest issue of LareDOS, City Manager Carlos Villarreal proudly acknowledges the acquisition of the old federal building across the street from Jarvis Plaza. He is quoted as saying, "People want to know what we do in Washington. This is what we do in Washington." For once I'd like to hear an explanation from Mr. Villarreal that doesn't come with a defensive tone. And this new building will be good for the city because, or course, they have all their other things in order.
