MCALLEN, Texas – Nedra Kinerk, the longtime president of Futuro RGV, is not happy with the ugly rhetoric flying around this election cycle.

She is also unhappy with all the negative ads running on TV that designed to portray a candidate as extreme or corrupt.

Kinerk expressed her views in a Q&A at a recent Mcallen Citizens League luncheon. The speaker at the event was Josh Mejia, president of the McAllen Chamber of Commerce. 

Both the McAllen Chamber and Futuro have tried to host a candidate forum for the marquee race this election season – Congressional District 15. They were unable to do so because one candidate refused to participate.

After the Citizens League event had concluded the Rio Grande Guardian asked Kinerk to elaborate on her views about the current election cycle. Here is the video interview:
