Speaking up: Starting a new nonprofit the San Marcos Civics Club

While the San Marcos City Staff and Council are headed in the right direction with their “Dream Session” initiative, we need a resource to help our neighbors feel empowered to organize and know how to navigate concerns within our local government. As a former City Council Member, I know all too well what people think about how things are run and our recent 2022 San Marcos “National Community Survey” proved that there’s a lot of work to be done to build trust between our local government and its community members. For that reason I’m starting the San Marcos Civics Club.

School Chaplains gain statewide, nationwide momentum

Texas legislators passed the “School Chaplaincy Act” which was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott on June 18th, 2023. Since then, over a dozen other states are poised to follow. Florida introduced a similar bill on December 22. School chaplaincy has overwhelming parent support and endorsements from grassroots organizations such as Ben Carson’s Institute and Moms for America. Legislation is teed up in states from Louisiana to Pennsylvania.
