Beto O’Rourke is set to visit Paris this Saturday, Dec. 11, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Tacos Queretaro to discuss why he has decided to run for Texas Governor.
During this meet and greet, O’Rourke will discuss his reasoning behind his run for Texas state governor. Also, he will shine a light on what he believes is at stake in the upcoming election and how the community can get involved.
The event will be held outside on the Tacos Queretaro’s back patio, off of W. Kaufman St.
“This past February, when the electricity grid failed and millions of our fellow Texans were without power, which meant that the lights wouldn’t turn on, the heat wouldn’t run, and pretty soon, their pipes froze and the water stopped flowing. They were abandoned by those who were elected to serve and look out for them,” O’Rourke claimed in his announcement video. “Those in positions of public trust have stopped listening to, serving and paying attention to, and trusting the people of Texas.”
During the announcement video, O’Rourke asked the people of Texas to be a part of his campaign.
“Because I saw that in February when the electricity grid failed and those in power failed all of us, it was the people of Texas who were willing to put their differences behind them and get to work doing the job at hand, which meant helping our fellow Texans get through that crisis. We did this out of a sense of duty and responsibility to one another,” O’Rourke continued in his announcement address.
Tacos Queretaro is located at 208 S. Main St. in Downtown Paris.
