I am Kristin Billo, GEDC President. I moved back to Goliad in 1997 to raise my family. I am also a teacher and local business owner. There are so many reasons to recommend Goliad. For history lovers, the rich heritage of First Americans, Spanish, French, German, and Mexican cultural influences are apparent everywhere. Farmers and Ranchers are integral in our community known as the Birthplace of Texas Ranching. Due to the success of our local schools, families are choosing Goliad for its robust GISD programs. We are looking forward to helping families and businesses relocate to a city in position to thrive while keeping our beautiful city's small town charm. When thinking about doing business, Remember Goliad.
