PHOTO BY JIM CULLEN 2nd annual Star Wars Read Day is 'Force-full' For the second consecutive year, Carpenter Hill Elementary's library hosted a "Force-ful" gathering in the CHES cafeteria Saturday afternoon, the popular event titled "Star Wars Read Day." Pictured are CHES 3rd-Grader Liam Plunkett and his mum, Celeste, having some face time with a storm trooper. Librarian Charlotte Massey, library tech Patti Pulis, CHES Principal Debbie Brown, and others turned out to welcome a crowd of participating Colts, many accompanied by their parents. Star Wars Read Day continues to be a global phenomenon, trumpeting itself as "a celebration of a galaxy far, far away and the joy of reading." And once again a special area of the festival offered books designed to enhance the fun and strengthen reading skills. As someone who has volunteered to serve on the Hays CISD Board of Trustees, the Buda EDC and Hays Education Foundation, I understand the value ........ of service. I want to share some information about John Hatch, candidate for Buda City Council and why his record of achievement makes him the clear choice for the Council. John has been active in the Buda Community for almost 20 years. He was a part of the group that led the effort to adopt our 1/2 cent sales tax to create and fund the Buda Economic Development Corporation. The Buda EDC has been one of the most successful in the area and their efforts have done much to create good jobs and positive economic growth like Cabela's and US Foods -I XPER . ' .ENCE MATTERS In 2001, John was asked to serve on the Buda Master Planning Commis- sion, which addressed many of the issues and helped lay the foundation for dealing with our growth. Since that time, Buda has grown from a commu- nity of 1300 to over 13,000 today. The planning in the early years enabled us to be a place so many want to call home - EXPERIENCE MATTERS, John was also a founding board member of the Hays Education Founda- tion. He has tirelessly worked to help establish the Education Foundation, which works to raise private funds to support the teachers and programs of the Hays CISD. John was also instrumental in the organization of the Buda Area Chamber of Commerce which continues to serve the businesses and business people of the Buda community - ERIENCE MXFTERS Finally, I know John as a man of faith and service to the Buda Community through his church. He and his family have been members of Buda United Methodist Church since 1997. John has served on the Buda UMC Admin- istrative Council as well as serving three years as the Buda UMC Men's Group President, including chair of the famous Pumpkin Patch that is a Buda highlight each Halloween season. Many candidates make promises about what they would do if elected, but for more than 18 years, John Hatch has already PROVEN he can get the job done for Buda. Experience matters and I hope you will cast your vote for John Hatch for Buda City Council, Place 1.
