Dwayne will benefit Aspen

Dear Editor:My name is Brad P. Bailey, I’ve been mayor of the city of Groves, Texas, for seven years. Dwayne Romero has been a lifelong friend for 30-plus years. Dwayne’s sense of community was tested after Hurricane Rita, which was the worst disaster in our city’s history. The west eye of Rita passed over our town of 16,000. Dwayne and friend (Jack Donovan) drove 24 straight hours after the storm to bring much needed generators, food, supplies and support. They assisted in fixing our homes with the infamous “Blue Roofs” and with general cleanup. Dwayne and I have partnered to revitalize one of the oldest nine-hole golf courses in Texas. The course never opened after Hurricane Rita, and we both thought the course would better serve the city of Groves if it remained a public facility and that we would focus on a very strong youth golf program. Dwayne’s commitment to community and strong family values will be of great benefit to the city of Aspen.Mayor Brad BaileyGroves, Texas
