City officials and staff, NISD officials and staff and concerned residents met at the Navasota Center for nearly two hours recently to discuss how best to handle issues of mutual interest. And City Manager Brad Stafford says there’s a ton of ‘em.
We both depend on each other to grow, he says, and service many of the same citizens. We want to be as efficient as we can and to support each other and help each other grow, because we can’t have one without the other.
But rising to the top of even that impressive pile, Stafford insists, is the spate of fake news, like the belief that Navasota has bad schools; a rumor he says he can dismiss day in and day out, having two kids who graduated from here who have been quite successful when they went off to college and the workforce.
And, he adds that there are quite a number of folks in the same boat.
Stafford tells Navasota News what he wants to develop are people who know more about just what Navasota has to offer, both inside city hall and the school district, to help keep rumors at bay.
Stafford says several at that meeting are forming a committee to continue assisting mutual, positive promotion of both the city and NISD. They don’t have a name, he admits, because they haven’t met yet.
But keep it here on Navasota News and we’ll let you know both when they do and what they come up with.
