BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Local elections are just around the corner and among the contested races, the city commissioners positions.
On Wednesday, the Republican Club of Brownsville hosted a candidate forum, at the Valley International Country Club, to inform voters who's in the running for city commissioner seats.
Of the eight candidates, five attended and each had a few minutes to introduce themselves, their platform and vision for the city. President of the Republican Club, Edward Padron, said, "Our city government is just as important as the national government, because it governs our local area. Who we elect and who we choose to represent us in our city, again, is just as important as the people we put in Washington."
