Another week full of events and things to do. We're repeating ourselves, but the number one thing to do is to vote this Saturday in our municipal election. Polls are open from 7am to 7pm and are located all across the city. As we saw last night, the city council has the power to make some important decisions that directly affect your way of life (i.e. temporary ban on new fracking wells, no more texting while driving, and multiple other things). So, if you care about the direction and future of our city, please go cast your ballot and make democracy count.
Questions, answers, moral support and your vote may be directed at firstname.lastname@example.org.

10% of all sales on Monday will go to the Denton Splash Park. As it gets hotter, this seems like a good idea. Also, a great excuse to eat a bunch of cinnamon rolls for a cause which isn't something you get to do very often and way more fun than running.
