Hidalgo County— Valley Interfaith in conjunction with Project VIDA will announce their endorsement of Proposition 1.
The organization says the hospital district will help the most vulnerable members of the community receive the healthcare services they need.
“There are so many reasons to support the creation of the hospital district, support Proposition 1. It is going to mean better access to healthcare and more clinics,” Valley Interfaith leader Eddie Anaya, said. “For every dollar invested, the federal government will match that dollar with $1.50. By leveraging our local monies, we can access millions of dollars and we won’t lose them to other counties.”
The organization plans to block walk in support of Proposition 1 and get the message out during Sunday mass at numerous churches across Hidalgo County.
Valley Interfaith is a broad based organization of over 25 institutions valley wide that works to develop community leaders so that our parishioners and families have a continuing voice and say in matters directly affecting their communities. We are strictly non-partisan and do not endorse political candidates.
