I ran into a high school friend of mine with her mom yesterday and told her that I was running for the position of Hidalgo County Judge. She quickly said that we needed to do something about the taxes that were out of control -especially for the elderly. I explained to her about how people 65 yrs and older are exempt from the penalties. But even more importantly, we definitely need to lower the County tax rate.
What breaks my heart is that over 300 families are losing their homes every year due to tax foreclosure - in Hidalgo County alone! This is unacceptable!!
