Every week we will ask one of our local public figures a few questions - some serious, some not so serious. This week, Taylor County Commissioner Chuck Statler shares his feelings about the Texas State blue law.

The Commissioner believes that Abilene's best 'claim to fame' is the friendliness of it's people. Statler touted the fact that the Abilene Chamber of Commerce and the Convention and Visitors Bureau both "tried to hang the 'Friendliest Frontier' slogan on Abilene".

On the lighter side of things, Commissioner Statler admitted to being a dog guy, favoring labs. The Commissioner's home currently houses a chihuahua-pug mix he affectionately calls a "Chug".

If you have any suggestions for future Talk of the Town candidates or questions, feel free to drop them in the comments below.
