By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
State Comptroller Glenn Hegar made it clear when speaking at the monthly Cuero Development Corporation Leader’s Meeting on Friday Feb. 5. Texas is a great place to live and work. He and his family have been here for over 170 years, and he is not going anywhere.
 
Oil and gas and the business that comes with it were hot topic items, as they are a large part of the state’s economy, but even in the midst of the decline in oil prices, Texas, the 12th largest economy in the world, is still a great place to live.
