LETTERS: Indictment evaluated

The indictment of ex-president Donald Trump is based on provable evidence. Trump has been going around the country complaining that he’s the victim of a witch hunt by Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, repeating this over and over. As usual he is lying to his gullible supporters.

LETTERS: Lost minds perceived

People have completely lost their minds. It’s hard to figure out the cause. Just maybe it’s the climate change that is the cause of all these killings, judicial system losing its equilibrium and all others making inexplicable decisions.

LETTERS: Republicans draw attack

It’s not hard to see why the GOP in Congress wish the country to default on its debts. They simply want President Biden to fail and they may have a chance at winning back the White House in 2024.

We can build transportation projects faster, more efficiently

As Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation in the Texas Legislature, I have had the privilege of working toward improving our ability to deliver road projects in the Rio Grande Valley. Throughout my tenure, one issue has become increasingly clear: Hidalgo County’s transportation system is being left behind. It is time for a change. It is time for HidalgoCounty to embrace a centralized system of managing its road construction and maintenance.

LETTERS: Welcome legislation

I am happy to report that Gov. Abbott signed House Bill 4742 into law last month. It becomes effective Sept. 1.
