ROBSTOWN-Area candidates had the opportunity to say what set them apart from their opponents during a candidate forum held at last week’s Northwest Business Association luncheon.
District 34 State Rep. Candidate Abel Herrero said early on that the area’s best interests are not being served in Austin.
‘Whether you talk about public education, access to healthcare for seniors, or windstorm insurance rates, if you look at my opponent’s voting record, you will see that the best interests of this district are not being represented,” Herrero said. “I’m very disappointed my opponent isn’t here. I understand campaign season is difficult, so I’m taking this time to challenge my opponent to a debate.”
