Elected Officials Reception
Thursday, February 26, 7pm
WB Community Center
The WBNA will be hosting a reception for our newly elected local officials on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at the Wells Branch Community Center from 7:00-8:30pm.
This is your chance to meet the people who represent you in our local government. State Representative for District 50, Celia Israel and our new Pct. 2 Travis County Commissioner, Brigid Shea will be on hand to meet our Wells Branch community.
A longtime public servant, Commissioner Shea is serving in a new position and although Representative Israel was re-elected to the House, this is her first legislative session. Both have new and exciting plans and goals that could potentially affect Wells Branch.
We hope you’ll bring your friends and neighbors as this is an excellent opportunity to meet our local officials and get to know each of them a little better. Refreshments will be served.
