Lt. Governor to speak at Chamber luncheon

HARLINGEN — One of Texas’ most powerful office holders will be in town next week for lunch and anyone on the list can eat with him.

It’s not Gov. Greg Abbott, the state’s most visible and vocal official. It’s his second-in-command, Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick.

“We invite everybody to come and hear what he has to say and have a chance to meet with him,” said Febe Zepeda, events manager for the Harlingen Area Chamber of Commerce.

Patrick will be the keynote speaker for the Chamber of Commerce’s public affairs luncheon on Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The luncheon will take place at Casa de Amistad in Harlingen.
