Over the weekend, a new mayor was elected. People of Nuevo Laredo showed their support for Carlos Canturosas. Canturosas is part of the PAN party. No one has defeated PRI party in Nuevo Laredo since his father, nearly 40 years ago. "People were expecting change and I think only good things can come out of it." This man has a few ideas of what the new mayor should do to fix the overrun city. "Starting with the police. That will be a big help. Right now, the army and marines are there doing the job of the police, so I think once they put police in place, not corrupt, it will change." But not everyone is so hopeful. “They're killing off all the politicians and if the mayor doesn't want to cooperate with the guys who are dealing drugs, he's not going to last long." He also says the first thing the new mayor needs to do is get rid of the crime, which he says won't be an easy task. "I admire the guys who run as candidates because they're risking their lives." One woman tells us she is hoping for a change in our sister city for a personal reason. "Yes, I have some relatives in Nuevo Laredo." She says she doesn't worry about them though. "No, because I'm praying for god to take care of them." Another man tells us he was following the mayoral race and feels the right candidate won. "I believe it's going to change everything." So many people here have family across the border and often travel over there. One man tells us he doesn't think this election will change what''s going on over there. "I don't think anybody can stop it right now." He says he still goes to Nuevo Laredo to see family, but is cautious. "You used to be able to go over there with no problems. No you gotta go over there and worry if you're going to come back alive."
