Harlingen mayor supporting healthy living challenge

HARLINGEN — Mayor Chris Boswell doesn’t back down from a challenge, especially one involving the city he leads.

But he’s going to need the help of the city to win.

Last week Boswell was challenged by Brownsville Mayor Tony Martinez to see who can rack up the most points in the “It’s Time Texas Community Challenge.”

“We welcome the mayor of Brownsville’s challenge and we’re moving forward with the challenge or without the challenge,” said Melissa Landin, public information officer for the city of Harlingen.

The It’s Time Texas Community Challenge, presented by H-E-B, unites and mobilizes community members, schools, businesses, organizations and mayors to see which communities can demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living.
