Cepeda: Border Bridge Wait Times data has to be more accurate
Hidalgo Mayor Martin Cepeda is interviewed by reporters at the 2014 Border Texan of the Year news conference, held at the BBVA Compass Bank Tower in McAllen last Tuesday.
HIDALGO, February 7 - Hidalgo Mayor Martin Cepeda is hoping new public-private partnerships designed to improve efficiencies at border bridges will help reduce the wait time for pedestrians and motorists crossing into the U.S.
Cepeda said it is not uncommon for tourists and business men and women to spend three or four hours on the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge. He also disputed Border Bridge Wait Times given to local media by Customs and Border Protection.
"We have our neighbors from Mexico coming over here to buy, to spend their money. A lot of them come from Monterrey and the southern part of Mexico. It takes them four or five hours to get to the bridge and then they get there and they have to sit another three to four hours," Cepeda told the Guardian.
"I am hoping that the new law allows us to open a lot more lanes through the hiring of more CPB inspectors," Cepeda said.
Asked if it is really true that pedestrians and motorists can sometimes wait three to four hours on the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge, Cepeda answered affirmatively.
Cepeda said he would like to see a more scientific method used to calculate how long visitors are kept waiting on international bridges. At the moment it is a guestimate obtained through line of sight by CBP officers.
Cepeda said he is "really hopeful" the new public-private partnership legislation will lead to more lanes opening at Hidalgo and more lanes built at the Anzalduas-Reynosa International Bridge.
Details about the public-private partnership legislation were unveiled by Valley leaders at a news conference at Anzalduas recently. Among those who spoke at the conference were U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, Mayor Cepeda, McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, Mission Mayor Beto Salinas, McAllen Bridge Superintendent Rigo Villarreal, Border Trade Alliance Chairman Jesse Hereford, and Border Trade Alliance board member and Starr-Camargo Bridge owner Sam Vale.

HIDALGO - The Concerned ..., 13 May 2012 [cached]
HIDALGO - The Concerned Citizens of Hidalgo swept Mayor John David Franz's supporters from power Saturday, handily taking three City Council seats and electing Martin Cepeda, president of Hidalgo's school board, to replace the city's longtime mayor.
Despite a crowded field, which featured a four-way race for mayor and eight candidates vying for three council seats, the Concerned Citizens took more than 50 percent of the vote in every race, avoiding a runoff election. Members of Mayor Franz's upstart political committee, Community United, which split from the Concerned Citizens last year, finished second in all four contests.
With the divisive campaign over, Cepeda said Hidalgo should unite around what's best for the town and leave partisan politics - the blue shirts of Community United and the red shirts of the Concerned Citizens - behind.
"There's no more colors. It's everybody together," Cepeda said.
>> Cepeda beat his childhood friend, Mayor Pro-Tem Alvin Samano, 1,380 to 1,062.
Nasty personal attacks on Facebook drove a wedge between Cepeda and Samano, who played Little League together and both graduated from Hidalgo High School in 1980.
