RNHA Interviews Dr. John Guerra for Hidalgo State Representative
Tonight RNHA News Interviews Dr. John Guerra a candidate for state representative for Hidalgo county.
Tell us about your background?
I am a board-certified Ob/Gyn who has been practicing medicine for 24 years and I am a small business owner with 20 years of business experience. I am a former member of the Texas Medical Board and Vice-Chair of the City of Mission Planning & Zoning Committee.
What motivated you to run for office?
I have spent my career taking care of patients and treating their problems. This is the way that I looked at the people in our country. Second of all, you need to have a few smarts to be a politician and I think that I am a better candidate than my opponent.
What will your first 100 days in the office look like?
Once I get elected I will look to get on the medical committees, HHS committee, Grand Valley Border committee, and agriculture committee.
How are you going to address the issue of corruption in Hidalgo County?
The first thing I am going to do is work with the newly elected district attorney, to prosecute voter integrity cases brought before the current DA. There is a huge issue with voter integrity and there needs to be arrests on the west side to address the embezzlement of money, nepotism, and family-run business cartels that are helping those elected officials. Political organizations are being paid to bring in the vote by paying individuals and telling them how to vote. They call candidates and ” educate” voters on how to vote.
How are you going to help bring jobs back to Hidalgo County?
I will work in Austin to bring up the many jobs that were lost when President Biden shut down the oil fields and get them back up and running again at the state level. Many Hispanics worked in the oil fields and have lost their jobs because of Biden’s policies. I want to remove restrictions on small businesses to help Mom and Pop shops get loans and other means they need to get started.
There is a tie here in Texas between oil and education funding. In West Texas, oil money is used to fund universities and the attack on oil is causing university funding and good jobs.
What is the biggest threat to education in America?
At this present point, we are not seeing woke indoctrination in the Rio Grande Valley and we will oppose any indoctrination of our children. I will support an increase in education funding.
