by Office of Communications | Jun 27, 2017

“The City of McAllen will always welcome our federal and state elected officials to our city, because by doing so, we can help them understand the needs in our community,” said City of McAllen Mayor Jim Darling.  “We are so proud that Sen. Cruz asked to be a part of our parade because we feel he recognizes that the legislative issues important to our city and our residents are important to him.”


“Hosting Sen. Cruz for our annual 4th of July Parade allows us all the opportunity to engage in productive dialogue, allowing for various viewpoints about McAllen and the entire Rio Grande Valley and the concerns, needs and reality of this region to be considered and discussed,” Darling concluded.
