Coffee with… This week’s speaker is Constable Adrian Gonzalez

SAN BENITO — The public will have an opportunity to have coffee with one of the county’s constables.

They will be able to talk to Cameron County Precinct 3 Constable Adrian Gonzalez.

They will also be able to ask him questions about his office and his relationship with the community during tomorrow morning’s San Benito Chamber of Commerce “Coffee With” session.

He will be talking about law enforcement and its important relationships with businesses in the community.

The meeting will start at 9:30 a.m. at the Chamber office, 223 S. Sam Houston Blvd.

Before taking office in January, Gonzalez served as a San Benito CISD police officer for 10 years. He spent eight of those years as a K-9 officer.

Gonzalez assumed the role of constable for Cameron County Precinct 3 on Jan. 1.

The Chamber hosts “Coffee With” meetings every Wednesday.

It’s all about connecting public officials with the community, Chamber President Lionel Betancourt said.

“The Chamber’s role in this town is to create transparency among all of us,” Betancourt said. “This is something we can build on.”

Over the past year and half, presenters have ranged from local and state leaders, business members, nonprofit organizations and many more.

All topics discussed pertain in some way to the community.

“Serious topics to be presented will (hopefully) deal with other issues involving progress in our town and ways to overcome some of the concerns and applaud the good things that happen here,” Betancourt said.

Additional “Coffee With” guests will be invited to continue this series of transparency in the community.
