MATHIS – The Mathis Economic Development Cooperation swore in Frank Galvan, Elvira Chavez and Michelle Herrera as directors last week. The three directors were previously on the Mathis EDC board and were welcomed back for another two-year term.

Mayor Ciri Villarreal was on hand to swear them in and said, “I want to thank you all very much for being directors of the EDC and Doug (Dowler) thank you very much for what you’re doing.

“I appreciate everything that you do and we’re going places. It takes time, but we can see the improvements already and hopefully we’ll keep on moving forward.”

Mathis EDC President Vicente Gonzales also delivered certificates of acknowledgment for outstanding leadership in service to the board of directors to the three members.

“We try to move as quickly as possible, but as you can attest to, getting things done in government is slow,” Gonzales said with a laugh.

“Thank you for everything that you all do.”
