Congressman Farenthold's Visit to the Valley

Last week, I travelled to San Benito and Brownsville to present a check for the San Benito Cultural and Heritage Museum Project and tour the Texas Oncology Center.
The San Benito Cultural and Heritage Museum Project is designed to ramp up tourism in the community and will create jobs by combining four local non-profits, the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center, the San Benito Historical Society, the Texas Conjunto Music Hall of Fame and the Freddy Fender Museum into one facility. As I told those at the dedication, “I’m glad all your hard work was not Wasted Days and Wasted Nights. I’m glad we got this done Before the Last Teardrop Falls.”

Touring the Texas Oncology Center in Brownsville, I was able to see first-hand the important role local cancer treatment centers play in our health care system. These centers, like the Texas Oncology Center, are able to reduce the cost of care while providing excellent patient services. As we move forward to repeal and replace the government takeover of health care, I will work to ensure quality patient centered healthcare is available to all Americans.
