What in the last 30 years has been the most

memorable event in Laredo?

Do you think that Laredo has changed to the better or to

the worst?

Wawi: For the better, for the better yes

Can you explain us why?

Wawi: I think Laredo like I said has provided a lot of opportunities uh there ah we have our own faults you know everyone complains about border violence and everybody complains about unemployment ands how expensive everything is but we also have to do our part we have to understand that Laredo has grown tremendously and we are in a crisis right now we need to learn how to coup with that and we need to learn how overcome that but you know we need to live life one day at a time and be able to come out of that and iam very hopeful an i have a lot of faith and our new president and I know that he will pull us through and uh and that one of the memorable events to the president.

What has been your biggest difficulty you have overcome?

Wawi: My biggest difficulty I have overcome in my job is maybe the idea that I had to run a job uh I was a college professor and also at the same time a was a lawyer and a as a judge you know so it was too much for me so that was the most difficult thing for me but the most difficult thing that I liked is to dealing with people you know I have It in my heart to help people so I enjoy that very much the interacting with everyone.

How has Laredo’s infrastructure changed?

  • Wawi: Oh my god you know that’s one the most important things we have done here in Laredo the infrastructure we never had loop 20 uh now its being expanded all the way to the south uh thanks to the president Barrack Obama with the stimulus package we were able to get a funding for the cuatro vientos project which is an 89 million dollar project that been in south Laredo uh it a huge uh we have expanded our roads all the way to Bruni and Mirando you know we have done a loop to two lane three lane sometimes so its really good the infrastructure is the number one uh issue here in Laredo because it has grown tremendously.

What is the crisis

that Laredo

is going through

right now?

Wawi: The crisis, uh the downfall is the economy right now.

  • Wawi: I have a lot of faith I don’t know when but I know It will improve eventually.
