Ed Smith, five-time elected
Mayor of Marshall, TX, is changing people's lives by encouraging
others to replace animal products in their diets for healthy
plant-based options. Mayor Smith became a vegan after a prostate
cancer diagnosis in 2008 prompted him to eat as healthiest as
possible. “Get Healthy Marshall”, the non-profit that Mayor Smith
started, allows people in Marshall and neighboring cities to be
exposed to and educated about vegan diets through monthly potlucks,
health fairs, supermarket tours, etc.
The Mayor Went Vegan, Then Spread the Word
Kudos for Mayor Smith! Elected officials are able to have a major
impact on their constituents’ lives and Mayor Smith is proving to be
an excellent role model in the area of health. Let’s hope his
actions encourage others to do the same elsewhere.
