AC145_ANDREW_P_COKINOS_COLLECTIONDescriptive Sheet The Andrew P. Cokinos AC -195 Collection General Type: Papers Physical Description: 1 Linear ft. Inclusive Dates: 1935 Donor: Andrew P. Cokinos In 1986, Andrew P. Cokinos was elected City Councilman -at - Large on the mandate that he would act in the capacity of public "watchdog" on behalf of the citizens of Beaumont. His nomination to that post came during public controversy and the loss in excess of over twenty million dollars of public funds in the ESM transaction. During his tenure in city government, Mr. Cokinos never failed to attend a council meeting nor let a complaint go unheeded. His strong support for the Fire and Police Departments brought public safety to maximum efficiency. Andrew, one of four homegrown brothers, is a graduate of Texas A & M University and is retired from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. This collection consists of one (1) post card of the Y.M.C.A., a program guide from the promotion day exercise of the Dowling Junior High School, dated May 30, 1935, and one (1) Order of the Eastern Star Manuscript. No restrictions apply.
