Creating opportunity is the defining role of a public servant. Those in public office rarely miss a chance to declare the need for more of it. Politicians continually talk – yea, verily, they preach – about it. They demagogue on it.
They don’t always succeed in creating it.
But I’m enjoying remarkable success creating opportunity.
And I want you to seize it.
You have the opportunity to spend some time with me on Thursday night. By itself, that is some pretty cool opportunity, if I say so my own self.
But, wait. There’s even more. You have the opportunity to experience this great time in a great venue – out under the stars at Zilker Park here in Austin.
This is what political pundits might call a simply astonishing amount of real, meaningful opportunity.
Seriously, I hope you’ll come to this great party. It’s lots of fun every year.
While we’re preparing for a good night in Zilker, our friends who are suffering from Hurricane Ike’s devastation shouldn’t be far from our minds and prayers.
