“El que no habla, Dios no lo oye,” (he who does not ask, God does not hear). That’s the way the Mayor of Port Isabel Joe Vega described how the city has been able to improve its standard of living and infrastructure in the past year, all with keeping a healthy fund balance.

The adage referred to the city’s ability to secure sizable grants that have assisted in tackling these projects.

Citizens should expect more of the same in 2012 as Port Isabel strives to reach a fund balance of $1 million, the mayor told a group gathered at Pirate’s Landing Friday as the Chamber of Commerce and Merchant Committee hosted the “Mayor’s Breakfast.”
