City Rep. Quintana gives her hair to ‘Locks of Love’

Press release from the office of city Rep. Rachel Quintana. It was sent to various media about 10:15 or so — AFTER the event. Any pictures will have to come from her office. Maybe she’s learned a thing or two about managing her image. Now she controls the story, whereas if folks were there taking pictures and video it could be used any number of ways. And maybe she was trying to prevent a stampede at the salon. Or maybe her office just screwed up … either way, it is a good deed. She ought to challenge the entire council (JK, mayor!). Ok, enough, here’s the release:
