NPR interview, Cuellar meeting part of itinerary

FLORESVILLE -- Mayor Diana Garza of Floresville is on a mission to Washington, D.C., where she is meeting with officials including U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, to plead for help with her city’s current financial challenges. Garza talked about her trip in an interview heard today on the National Public Radio (NPR) show “Tell Me More.”

The interview, titled “Small Towns Struggle Too” with host Michel Martin, can be accessed online via this link: http://n.pr/ZhTZP7. In it, Martin draws parallels between the nation’s financial crisis and similar angst felt by cities as large as Detroit and as small as Floresville.

Garza talks about Floresville’s woes and explains how the city was ill- prepared for the housing shortages, population boom, increase in traffic, and lodging needs brought about by the ongoing petrochemical exploration of the Eagle Ford shale. Garza told Martin that she made the trip to the nation’s capitol -- which includes a visit to her “friend Henry” -- on her own time and with her own money.
