Atascosa County Judge

Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Monday we celebrated our service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Memorial Day is a federal holiday. I encourage you to do a little research on our federal holidays. These holidays give most people a three day weekend or an extra day or two off. If you research federal holidays, you will find out the true meaning of why these days are special. Sometimes we get caught up in the fact that it is a paid holiday when we should really be thinking about the reason we celebrate. As a nation we have decided that those days and or events are so special that we should take a day to remember. Marketing and advertisements have commercialized these days and take away from the true meaning of the celebration. Just some words for thought.
