Hidalgo County Judge Asks Musk To Move Tesla
In a letter posted on Facebook and Twitter, the Hidalgo County Judge, Richard Cortez, has asked Tesla CEO and co-founder to consider moving his company’s factory to Hidalgo County.
This comes after Musk has tweeted his displeasure with California and his county’s pushback about re-opening the Tesla manufacturing factory. Here is the full tweet along with the open letter.
