Activist running in Farmers Branch
Via Stace, I see that one of the leaders in the fight against xenophobia in Farmers Branch is a on the ballot for City Council there.
Business owner and activist Elizabeth Villafranca [announced] her candidacy Monday afternoon.
Villafranca, an outspoken opponent of city officials' failed attempts to prohibit immigrants from renting homes, is seeking the spot being vacated by Jim Smith.
She and her husband own Cuquita's, a Mexican food restaurant in Farmers Branch.
I wish her the very best of luck. Given the results
of the last election
in Farmers Branch, I can't say I'm optimistic about her chances. But you have to start somewhere.
