EDINBURG - Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe "Lupe" Trevino has defeated opponent Robert Caples.
The county's top cop said he can now move on and continue working. He called the general election campaign more of a nuisance than an obstacle.
He said the office of the sheriff belongs to the people. He said voters spoke loud about the kind of leadership they want.
He said his department plans to continue with plans to open a substation and the purchase of new communication equipment. He said the office can improve in many ways.
