In a great loss to Central Texas activism and general feistiness, longtime Hays County government watchdog and gadfly Charles O’Dell, 75, was killed Feb. 1 in a traffic accident – he was on his motor scooter en route to a Hays Community Action Network meeting.
O’Dell was famous or notorious for insisting on transparency and accountability in government. HaysCAN announced a memorial service Saturday, March 3, 2pm, at the Wizard Academy, 16221 Crystal Hills Dr., Austin (off CR 1826), with an invitation to those wishing to share stories about O’Dell.
