The Highland Park Town Flag flies, but not in Dan Branch’s office … yet.
I had my camera and everything, ready to capture the Town Council of Highland Park handing over a brand new town flag to its state representative, Dan Branch.
I was out of luck, though, because Branch was unable to make it to Dallas from an engagement elsewhere. Town spokesperson Detective Marty Nevil told me that Branch had actually canceled earlier in the day, at around 1 p.m., but not before the color guard had rehearsed for the event.
Nevil is hopeful that Branch will be able to make it to the next council meeting, though.
The council did cancel meetings scheduled for July 26 and Aug. 23 because of travel plans among council members that will not allow a quorum to be present.
