Edinburg's population in 2021 is close to 33% higher than during the last census in 2010, and Mayor Richard Molina says he's not surprised to see the increase.

"I'm just excited to see these numbers," Molina said. "But at the same time, we're not surprised because we know that we have worked, really, hard with the census to push these numbers out— I think Edinburg is going to get the attention it's deserved for a long time. "
