Yeah! What it means is that he likes the Valley. The newly elected Texas Governor chose the Rio Grande Valley to make his first official visit as governor of Texas. It was the City of Edinburg at the Edinburg Renaissance Convention Center where he made his appearance in front of visiting Texas legislators touring the Valley. Richard Garcia Mayor of Edinburg had the privilege of introducing him, “The governor of the State of Texas Greg Abbott, our governor.”

Gov. Abbott feels at home when he visits the Valley, he has made a lot of friends aside from the ones he already had. For us at Texas Border Business it is a privilege to have him for the second time as our feature story cover. He represents everything that describes a good, law-abiding citizen, a patriot, and a ferocious protector of the United States Constitution.

The newly elected governor of Texas Greg Abbott visited the Valley precisely when the RGV Legislative Tour, which is marking its 21st anniversary, was underway. This is probably one of the proudest days for the Valley when House and Senate members from around Texas tour the Valley under a very tight schedule of multiple activities.

He also thanked United Health Group not only for the grant they provided to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley but also for their efforts to make Texas better. You may read inside this issue about the $2.8 million grant.
