COASTAL BEND TARA CHAPTER HEARS REPRESENTATIVE HERRERO
State Representative Abel Herrero, District 34, was in Corpus Christi for a few hours on April 11, and spent time with the TARA Coastal Bend Retirees. His overall theme was “Voting is the strongest power you have.” He expressed his pleasure that he can see the difference in attitude that the 2018 election made in the House and that it is a much more pleasant session. Whenever anyone asked what they can do to help, phone calls and emails help, he said, but nothing will be more powerful than our votes and helping to get more people to vote. When Rep. Herrero announced that the time has almost run out to present bills, everyone was shocked that so much time has passed. May 9 is the last day for the House to consider house bills on the 2nd reading and each day there’s a new deadline until May 27, the final day. After the end of his remarks, Rep. Herrero shook hands with all present.
