On Friday, Resource Center Communications and Advocacy Manager Rafael McDonnell went to the county office building to pick up the proclamation. Three commissioners and County Judge Clay Jenkins signed the proclamation. Where Cantrell’s signature would have gone, the document is marked “absent.”
Funny he wasn’t absent five minutes earlier when the court honored an 18-year employee who was retiring from the county.
McDonnell checked on an earlier proclamation recognizing Resource Center’s anniversary. His signature appears there. Maybe he was just a little bit confused and thought Resource Center is where the gays went for their reparative therapy.
Or maybe he’s just the Vonceil Jones Hill of the commissioners court.
