|Ed's Campaign Sign on 14th Street, Purchased by|
Car Salesman Mike Hernandez III
It's not too big of a stretch to call Ed Rivera, "Brownsville's Biggest Loser," as blogger Bobby Wightman-Cervantes did, just a few days ago.(We had that designation in our notes, but BWC is just a bit quicker on the trigger.) Consider this, Rivera, a Harvard grad with a splendid resume', relinquished his spot as a Texas Southmost College trustee, to run for one, then another position on the Brownsville Navigation District, but lost that race by a wide margin despite heavy financing from Dallas car salesman Mike Hernandez III. He also found his brief service on the Brownsville/South Padre Island Airport Advisory Committee a bit too cumbersome, relinquishing that post.

The names EDRIVERA and RAULVILLANUEVA both adorned OP 10.33 advertising signs throughout the county with the space between their first and last names removed, possibly to demonstrate their frugality in apportioning tax dollars at the Brownsville Navigational District. We suspect Mike Hernandez III sells both the HUNDAIELANTRA and the KIASPORTAGE at his Dallas luxury car dealership and knows how to market an economy puddle jumper as a luxurious land yacht.
