As originally published by Texas Border Business newsprint Edition,

I have never felt so proud of our representation in the United States Senate like I feel today. Having Senator John Cornyn representing us is like saying, ‘it’s done’.

Here, in the border with Mexico, there are many issues. Some of them simple, others extremely complex, and that’s when you need someone like Senator John Cornyn who is level headed and can make intelligent decisions for this Texas-Mexico region.  Indeed, Mexico has been our friend for centuries, and most of the Rio Grande Valley is in a way interconnected with Mexico, so doing business, lots of business, with Mexico is integral to those who live in this region. Senator John Cornyn works closely with others in this region to maintain and to enhance a good relationship with Mexico.

Senator Cornyn recently toured the Pharr International Bridge and Mission accompanied by his guest and colleague Senator Bill Cassidy from the State of Louisiana.

For Senator Cassidy, this was his second visit to the Valley. The first time he visited the Valley he toured Harlingen during a medical lecture he gave related to his profession.

This time around, Senator Cassidy had the opportunity to see how the Pharr International Bridge operates and how important it has become as a means to promote and enhance commerce with Mexico.

Senator Cornyn invited him also to tour the Rio Grande Valley by air and aboard a riverboat in the company of the Border Patrol and Homeland Security officers. You can find the complete story in this issue.

In this issue, you will also get to meet a couple in business. Yes, a husband and wife. Both attorneys with a combined professional experience of twenty-four years, Attorneys Pilar (Pete) Espinosa and Mercedes Salinas Espinosa, work together to meet a variety of legal needs throughout the Rio Grande Valley.

The BIG Story for this issue is the Grand Opening of the Memorial Event Center in Edinburg Texas. It was Letty Gonzalez, the president of the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce, who proudly announced that the Memorial Event Center was having a big grand opening to commemorate the new facility packed with friends, family and guests. “And isn’t this a beautiful place?” she said.

Leon and Velma Sue de Leon have been faithful supporters of communities in the Rio Grande Valley and the owners of Memorial Event Center in Edinburg. You will find the story here.

On another matter, I have to congratulate several outstanding individuals of South Texas and beyond. First of all, congratulations to Jaime E. Tijerina from the City of Mission. He has been elected to serve as a member in the Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation.

Congratulations to Jerry Sanchez. The American Advertising Federation – RGV awarded him three ImageHouse Media awards in the Best of the Best categories. The categories were: Best Advertising Director – Jerry Sanchez; Best Media Buyer – Jerry Sanchez and Best Social Media Agency – ImageHouse Media—Jerry Sanchez.

Congratulations Joel “Jody” Galindo, P.E., for receiving his professional engineering license. He is employed by ERO, one of the finest architectural firms of south Texas.

I also have welcome comments to Teclo Garcia who has joined the Mission EDC team.  He will serve as the Director of Strategic Partnerships and Program Development.

And another BIG Welcome goes to Pedro Ayala, Principal & Founder of BUILD: Brands & Environments. Pedro was invited to be part of Texas Border Business distinguished Guest Writers.

Thank you! I know that you will enjoy this issue of the TBB!
