We have a very exciting and informative event coming up next Monday, September 19 from 4:30 until 6:30 PM. I hope you will be able to join us, even if only for a little while.
Rep. Todd Hunter, State representative from Corpus Christi and chairman of the powerful Calendar Committee, will be visiting with us at our headquarters. He’ll be giving us a legislative update and will be hearing the concerns that we have in the Valley and what we would like to have addressed in the next legislative session.
The Honorable Mayor Beto Salinas from Mission will be speaking in reference to the upcoming vote on the Hospital District Tax. This is a great opportunity to ask questions. Also, past Hidalgo County GOP Chairman, Javier Villalobos, will share with us the efforts he is making to defeat this new tax. On other matters, Othal Brand Jr. will address Representative Hunter with some of our other local issues.
This will be very informal and any in attendance should feel free to share concerns and ask questions. Address of headquarters is 1109 W. Nolana, Suite 306, McAllen.
As previously published, the Hidalgo County GOP Executive Committee has written a resolution in opposition to the new hospital district tax. Yard signs and bumper stickers will be available. We also have signs for Trump/Pence and our local Republican candidates.
