My First Job: Gabriel Soliz
Name: Gabriel Soliz
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Victoria City Council member
First job: I was a newspaper boy for the Advocate.
What it taught me: I learned you've got to be disciplined to be places on time. I also learned a lot about the community from that point. The ironic part is the area I threw newspapers at was my district. Things happen for a reason, I guess.
