South Texas Health Systems held a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday for a free-standing emergency room that will be built on the north side of I-2/Expressway 83 in Weslaco. STHS owns McAllen Medical Center, McAllen Heart Hospital and Edinburg Regional Hospital. It also plans to build a free-standing emergency room in Mission.
Mission mayoral candidates Jaime Gutierrez, a businessman, and John Guerra, a physician, participated in a debate at Mission Public Library on Tuesday evening. It was hosted by the Progress Times. Mission Mayor Norberto Salinas was a no-show. “Why do I need to debate these guys? Everyone knows my record,” Salinas told the Guardian.
Mission’s population is over 80,000 yet only about 6,000 to 7,000 voters cast ballots in city elections. Mission City Commission Place 1 candidate Jessica Ortega-Ochoa says more education is needed. She says even educated people tell her they cannot vote for her because they live in Sharyland. But, Sharyland is part of Mission.
Hidalgo Mayor Martin Cepeda will give the very first Hidalgo State of the City Address on Thursday evening. The event takes place at 6 p.m., March 24, at the Hidalgo Chamber of Commerce. Cepeda said he will discuss Hidalgo’s most recent accomplishments and share his vision for the future of the city.
