This is an excellent way to start. My good friend and collegue for WAY longer than we have both been lawyers/attorneys (we used to work in the Fox Theater in St. Louis togther back in college), Mike Colona, has been elected to the Diversity Seat vacancy on the Board of Governors from the Eastern Appellate District. He is a former Missouri Legislatgor and one of the nicest people you would ever meet. In addition, he and I have been practicing criminal law together in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and the surrounding areas for the last 18 years. I'm sure he will be just as much of an asset in his new post as ever.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
