The District 5 seat on the Big Spring City Council will see a new face following municipal elections this May, as freshman council member Craig Olson announced today he will not be seeking a second term.
In a statement provided to the Herald this morning, Olson said personal commitments weighed heavily on his decision not to seek re-election.
People are running out of time if they want to purchase tickets to this year's Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce Banquet.
Debbye ValVerde, executive director of the chamber, said Friday is the final day to buy tickets for this year's event, which will be held at 7 p.m. Jan. 31 in Howard College's Dorothy Garrett Coliseum. Tickets cost $25 apiece.
This year's event is titled, â€śMoving Forward With Every Step,â€ť an idea that dovetails nicely with both the banquet and the chamber's overall mission, ValVerde said.
