Texas Secretary of State, Esperanza Andrade, made a stop in the Valley on Tuesday touring colonias.
The visit comes after a big push by the City of Donna, which receives $22 million dollars in grants and loans, for water connections in nearby colonias. Some of those connections are already up and running and others will soon receive the much needed resource.
Andrade's visit concluded with a tour of the construction site for the new Donna-Rio Bravo International bridge.
