If you know McAllen Texas and have some insight into the growth there - potential or real - send this author a note. She has put out a request for help. The magazine she is writing for appears to be new. You can probably get quoted if you provide good information.
Her name is Tonya Whitaker and the Magazine is Capiqua. I have no idea where the magazine name came from or what it means. Her request was "I am writing a story about McAllen, Texas, making a few lists as the place of steady job growth in 2010. I need to speak with someone familiar with job market issues." Those things include real estate, too.
So if you're an expert in McAllenese, send her a note! firstname.lastname@example.org Tonya Whitaker
