    A big thanks to the PRESS for having the results Saturday night.

    Also a big congratulations to all those elected. This was a huge Anti-Vega statement by the voters in the Laguna Madre area. It showed the Vegas do not have the political clout that they had when Eliseo was alive and it also showed that the children, Joe and Olga, are not in the same league as their dad was. Don’t even bother running next year, you all aren’t going to win

    It’s time for the City of Port Isabel to move forward, quit spending money they don’t have, and rid themselves of the money grabbing attorney.

    It’s time for the school district to put the children first, get rid of overstaffed administrators (really, 3 counselors at the high school?), hire the best qualified for the job (not necessarily hometown people), and make the administrators act and look professional. You have a lot of teachers not dressing professionally. Appearance is everything.

    Good luck to those newly elected officials, Jeffrey Martinez and Jimmy Vela,
