The give-away continues around the gateway city. This past week, numerous elected officials have been featured in the news giving away all sorts of gifts and treats to kids, parents and older Laredoans. It's amazing how the cameras always seem to "just happen to be there".
The generosity, for the most part, seems to be funded by Laredo taxpayers but this is never mentioned. The intention is for those in receipt of these give-aways to think that it comes directly from their benefactors. The only mention I heard Pro8News make of anything to the contrary was that the Sheriff's wife pitched in to participate in the gift-giving. If that's the case, hats off to her.
