The H-Town Mayor announced her appointees to the METRO Board yesterday and included a first.  Gilbert Garcia will serve as the first ever Latino METRO Board Chair.  It’s about time.  Way to go Mayor!

Her other METRO Board appointees include Allen Dale Watson, Dwight E. Jefferson, Carrin Patman, and Christof Spieler.

Next time you see The Mayor, give her the knuckle bump, un abrazo, a high five, tell her muchas gracias, or offer her a cerveza!

“Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,

“Greenest state in the Land of the Free,

“Raised in the woods so’s he knew every tree,

“Kilt him a b’ar when he was only three.

If you are of Commentary’s age, you know the song and you know that Fess Parker played Davy Crockett in the Walt Disney productions way back then.  Fess Parker left us yesterday.
