Congressman Gonzalez Statement Following Governor Abbott’s Trip to South Texas
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued a statement following Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s trip to South Texas.
“While it’s been some time since our hospitals reached capacity, I am thankful that Governor Abbott is acting and allocating additional resources to transition the McAllen Convention Center to a health care facility. This equipment and personnel will help our overwhelmed health systems save lives and provide support in our post-hurricane response. It is my hope that we can work together and continue to provide critical aid for the people of South Texas during this time. I will never stop being a loud voice to assure that the needs of South Texans continue to be a priority.”
