Hello, readers. Today we had our first debate of the general election Republican Tony Mallette and Democrat Danny Garcia told us why they wanted to represent Victoria County's Precinct 1 on the Commissioners Court. It was an interesting debate with both candidates giving their opinions on everything from economic development to the future of Citizens Medical Center. We hope to have the video posted in about a day.

Tomorrow at 1:30 p.m., we will be holding our usual editorial board meeting. There's been a lot happening this week, so be sure to come by the Internet Cafe at the Victoria Advocate, or you can watch online and give us your opinion in the online chat box. We'll look forward to seeing you there.
