THOMAS GWOSDZ

• Name: Thomas Gwosdz

• Age: 42

• City of residence: Victoria

• Current title: Victoria city attorney

• First job: I sacked groceries at a Kroger grocery store in Alvin when I was 16 years old.

• What it taught me: I learned that, when the boss calls you in on your day off, you never know what to expect. I remember helping to clean up the cafe area one day, because we heard the health department was on its way for an inspection. I also learned that, when you work for somebody else, you're at their disposal. You need to do what they need you to do.
