The Prosperity Task Force, created by Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez, has been addressing the disproportionate amount of poverty in Hidalgo County for the past three years. The forum, which is open to the public, will focus on the challenges of mitigating the poverty rate locally by developing human capital through job training and job creation.

“Our goal is to move as many people as possible out of the welfare line and into the taxpayer line by creating job training and job placement opportunities,” Judge Cortez said. “This forum is an important step in educating the public about our ambitious plans.”

The forum will take place at the South Texas College campus at 3201 Pecan Blvd, McAllen, at the Student Union Center (Building U).
