County Judge candidates must be ready to lead our county through big challenges toward a thriving future.
Hidalgo County residents — and colonia residents in particular — are on the frontlines of the biggest challenges facing the nation and the world.
Power-hungry politicians use our home to scapegoat immigrants, divide citizens and enrich wealthy special interests.
Climate damage has fueled storms that flood our region.
And the pandemic is deepened inequality and exacerbated existing divisions.
But that hasn't stopped RGV residents from working together for the things we all need to thrive.
Across race and background, we are uniting to demand those who govern in our name to provide the things all working people need:
Healthcare for all.
Jobs that pay our worth.
Education that teaches us about our past while preparing us for the future.
And so much more.
That's why tonight we are hosting a forum with the candidates for Hidalgo County Judge in the Democratic Party Primary.
