Brownsville city leaders and representatives continue to prep to make their voice be heard at the state capitol for the new 85th Legislative Session.
The chamber of commerce continues to be at the forefront of a movement that will bring issues, concerns, and legislation needed in our Rio Grande Valley up to our state representatives at the capitol March 7th. According to chamber interim president Esmeralda Villarreal, the agenda has a set of priorities that will not change no matter what this presidential election brings.
Esmeralda Villarreal, Interim President Chamber of Commerce says, “So our mission is to advocate for our members. This is a way to, of course, go up there and represent all of the different businesses and the community and it could vary from economic growth impact, of course healthcare. We go and represent those particular priorities of course the election is very important to all of us and our members. It will impact the Rio Grande Valley and the business community, but at this moment I don’t foresee that being impactful in that sense.”
The chamber of commerce and Brownsville representatives will be heading up for ‘A Day at the Capitol’ come March 8th.
