(Community Matters) Terrific fundraiser for our friend Ft. Worth Council member Joel Burns organized by Aimee Boone. Joel speculated that we’ve known each other for 15 years. I was thinking about this, it’s probably 12.He and his partner J.D. Angle are extreme community stewards.
Joel’s smart, gracious, dedicated and Ft Worth proud – represents his residents and our LGBT community very well.
