A Tribute to Danny Alvarez


Aaron Smith wanted to do an editorial cartoon as a tribute to local attorney and judicial candidate Danny Alvarez, who collapsed and died one day after winning the May primary. We were so glad to see Danny win, and so devastated when he died, and we think the cartoon captures perfectly why we felt both those emotions.

Danny Alvarez was an asset to this community, and he is sorely missed by all who knew him.
