Former Kerrville mayors, 2005

My wife, the lovely Ms. Carolyn, found this among our books as she straightened and cleaned a bookshelf at our home recently.  I thought I'd share it with you here.
This photograph was arranged by the mayor at the time, Stephen Fine.  The building in the background is the old City Hall, in the 600 block of Main Street, which is now Union State Bank. The photograph was taken by my friend James Partain.
Many of the men in the photograph have since passed away -- but all of them, despite their differences of opinion, worked hard to make Kerrville a better place.
