Castlewood marks completion of Drainage Project with Ribbon Cutting

EAST ALDINE – Harris County Precinct 2 marked the completion of the Castlewood Drainage Improvement project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Prior to the project, the Castlewood community’s outdated drainage systems could not drain rainwater efficiently to reduce flood risks. The groundbreaking was 14 months ago, and the project is now complete.

The $12.3 million improvements provide 2.o miles of improved roadway, 5-foot sidewalks with ADA ramps, and new underground storm sewer systems designed for the 100-year storm events.

BETO brings Star power to Aldine


ALDINE – Hundreds of potential voters turned out last Tuesday night at the Escapade club on the Eastex Freeway in East Aldine, to hear campaign talks from Gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke and Attorney General candidate Rochelle Garza. But the featured speaker of the evening was Lin-Manuel Miranda, star of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

Introductory remarks and welcome were given by State Representative Armando Walle, and then fiery speeches were delivered by Beto and Lin-Manuel. The crowd enthusiastically listened and applauded the message of need for change in Texas government.

Democrats are making a strong push near the end of the campaign, as their Republican opponents are showing strength in the polls. Beto has trailed incumbent governor Abbott through the whole race, and although he was with in a few points last week, the most recent Rice University poll shows him losing ground, trailing by over 10 percentage points.
