Henry Cuellar respects Perry, but won’t endorse him

Rep. Henry Cuellar, who crossed party lines in 2000 to endorse Republican George W. Bush, stopped just short of calling that endorsement a mistake. In an interview, he also made clear he would notendorse his friend Rick Perry in this year’s presidential race. Cuellar remains loyal to the Texas governor, who appointed the Laredo Democrat to serve as Texas secretary of state before he won his seat in Congress. But the past experience of crossing party lines and the resulting political fallout would prevent him from doing it again. “I’m just a big believer in ...

Rep. Cuellar’s Bill to Rename Tilden Post Office Passes House
Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) today announced the successful passage of H.R. 1207, a bill he authored to rename the post office located at 306 River Street in Tilden, Texas, as the “Tilden Veterans Post Office.” The bill passed the House and is now awaiting approval from the U.S. Senate. Speaking today on the House floor, Congressman Cuellar stressed the importance of naming this post office in honor of all veterans. “Across my district, there are many examples of fine men and women who have honorably served our country,” Congressman Cuellar said. “An example would be Anselmo Villareal of Tilden, Texas. He was drafted into the Army in 1968 and served a tour in Vietnam. He continues to serve others in a local veteran’s service organization. We owe our freedoms to veterans like Mr. Villareal, which is why I am recognizing him, and all veterans, with the dedication of this post office.” Congressman Cuellar also thanked local veteran caregivers for their service

Representative Henry Cuellar Issues Statement on Concerns about Rio Grande Dams
Representative Henry Cuellar issued the following statement after reviewing a report from the State Department’s 2018 Congressional Budget Justification stating that five of six Rio Grande Dams have “urgent” safety concerns: “I am working to address the challenges facing the ongoing maintenance and repairs of our international dams on the Rio Grande. I have spoken to IBWC representatives about the best response from the federal government. The agency has assured me that the dams are safe during normal operations and flood events. However, the backlog of unmet maintenance must be addressed in a responsible manner to prevent any further deterioration that could put the community at risk. As a member of the appropriations committee, I am working with my colleagues to address issues that have been overlooked for too long. I will continue to work with IBWC and my fellow Texas border representatives to protect our communities. The safety of my constituents is my top priority.
