In a campaign to offer residents a better route to San Antonio, Nuevo Leon officials put up billboards encouraging travelers to use the Columbia Solidarity Bridge. By doing so, drivers can avoid the traffic in Laredo and make better time on their way north to shop in San Antonio.
Our mayor, on the other hand, is not pleased with the campaign. He counters that Laredo has many things to offer.
We may not have much to offer right now, as the golf course, and baseball stadium are being constructed. But once those projects are completed, we'll have no problem luring shoppers and tourists alike.
