Gonzales Economic Development Corporation board members Dewey Smith, Steve Sucher and Crissy O'Neal have been reappointed to the GEDC board for two-year terms that began on Oct. 1. At the time of reappointment, one position remained vacant, until an application was received from Gerri Lawing to serve on the board.
In her application Lawing expressed her interest in seeing Gonzales grow.
"As a citizen of Gonzales, I would like to see the Economic Development Sales Tax invested in projects that produce additional tax base and wealth for the community," she said.
Lawing currently works for Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative as Economic Development Coordinator. She also heads the Gonzales Area Development Corporation and is on the Texas Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors, Team Texas (state-wide economic development marketing) Board of Directors, as well as the Victoria College – Gonzales – Advisory Board.
