Marco Ortiz

Marco Ortiz will be the guest on the next Pints, Politics & Culture.

Marco Ortiz, current president of the Taylor ISD school board, will be the next guest for Pints, Politics & Culture, 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Texas Beer Co.

Ortiz was elected to the board in 2015 and as president of the board in 2018.

His brief tenure as the elected helmsman of the school board has seen the controversial departure of a popular principal and three high school students arrested for making terroristic threats on campus.

Ortiz is also one of the people behind the resurgence of the local American Legion Post.

Taylor Press publisher Richard Stone will conduct the interview.

Pints, Politics & Culture is a live interview on the stage at the Texas Beer Co. It is also streamed live on the Taylor Press’ Facebook page (@gotaylortx), then curated on the paper’s website.

The Greater Taylor Chamber of Commerce is helping to underwrite the program.
