Mayor Javier Villalobos welcomed distinguished dignitaries and guests to McAllen’s State of the City 2023 address.


Friends, Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Thank you for joining me on such a momentous day. Today I stand with my fellow commissioners, residents, guests, friends, and family – united in purpose- to inform you of our successes, challenges, and plans for a better and brighter future.


We are also united by the power of McAllen to bring people together to achieve momentous things. The power of McAllen’s community partners is why your support keeps today’s event at zero-cost to taxpayers, with all proceeds going to local nonprofits. You know, since we began hosting our state of the city programs the generosity and support from our community has been amazing. Thank you to Linebarger and Vantage Bank Rioco who have supported this event at the diamond level. Thank you for your generous support of our community nonprofits. And to all supporters and sponsors, we offer you our thanks and a well-earned round of applause- thank you so much.
