    City officials approved the new music festival to INSTILL SAN BENITO PRIDE. Y’all city officials are clueless as to what is going on in our city or worse turn a blind eye. First to instill pride back into the city y’all must get rid of the city officials bringing negative attention to the city. City officials being DECEPTIVE and UNETHICAL to the citizens of San Benito. Untill the Mayor and Commission hold them accountable there will never be any SAN BENITO PRIDE. WAKE UP.
