Civic Duties

Last night we attended our first convocation of the homeowners' association for our building. Six of the seven units were represented. We met in the apartment of the "administradora" who has lived on the 4th floor for around 25 years and raised three boys there with her husband.

We agreed on a higher dues for the next year, mostly due to inflationary pressures and most particularly because of retirement contributions for Don Tito, who does basic cleaning for the building three times a week. 

Today we faxed our requests for federal absentee ballots to the Travis County Clerk. We hope our votes will count.
