I had the privilege of attending an event put on by the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce last week that was really interesting. It was called "speed networking." The event basically gave business owners and/or business presenters a chance to meet and network together. Each business had 60 seconds to tell the others who they were and what they did in the community. Many of you are probably saying at this point "who cares!" but it was a real inspiration, to me, to see so many people excited about making Brownsville a better place. Although I had to leave early for a previously scheduled appointment, I was real impressed to see a positive glimpse into our future here "on the border by the sea."
