The mayor may not be attending every ribbon cutting nowadays, as Maximiliano lamented. But Mr. Salinas will always make time for the cool comforts of a t.v. studio. In his most recent guayabera interview, the mayor talks about Laredo's unemployment numbers, and the effort to bring more jobs to town.
The mayor mentions the benefits that the Eagle Ford Shale has afforded our community. He does that a lot. I'm almost tempted to take a page from Joe Biden and say that there are only three things Raul Salinas mentions in a sentence: a noun, a verb, and the Eagle Ford Shale.
McAllen's unemployment statistics are mentioned too. But more importantly, the mayor wants to roll up his sleeves to get the work of bringing more high-paying jobs to Laredo done. Oddly enough, he's wearing short sleeves.
Stay hydrated, my friends.
