Press Release

Houston METRO backs off on promise to Hispanic leaders.

Houston State Senator Mario Gallegos, Jr. and Houston City Council Member Adrian Garcia are not happy with METRO’s decision to reconsider building the North corridor light rail line.

That what voters supported. Gallegos and Garcia have every right to speak out.
