This will be her first visit to Fort Worth and the first time the two mayors will meet. Richard Casarez, ONCOR, and Asusena Rusendiz, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, are Co-Chairs of the Sister Cities Toluca committee and have a packed itinerary planned for the group. Several events are planned for the community to meet the delegation including a welcome reception, celebratory dinner and bike ride with the two mayors. Information on these events are on-line at www.fwsistercities.org. Mayor Price and Mayor González are both bicycle enthusiasts and will be riding bikes to the Stockyards furnished through the Fort Worth Bike Sharing Program. Mayor González is very interested in learning more about the bike sharing program and how to implement it in Toluca. While here our guests will also experience the Main Street Arts Festival and learn about staging a large festival. Jay Downie, Director of the Arts Festival, will give the group a behind-the-scene tour to acquaint them with many logistical procedures.
