I like Alamo, Texas ever since I moved over to Alamo from Edinburg. The people are nice; There are many warm-hearted people. I live off of Nebraska, a few streets from Eldora road. I would like to see Alamo help build new roads--I want Alamo to take initiative to repair Eldora road. Eldora road is very bumpy.

Living in this area overall is nice and there is not a lot of crimes. As a community we work together to make sure that the place we live in is thriving peacefully and safely. Aside from the safety that this community has, there is not many things to do in the city of Alamo. There are some restaurants but not many big places to see. I love this city, I have lived all my life here but I would like to move to a slightly bigger city in the future.

Employment in the area is good for certain sectors of the workforce. If you are a blue collar worker (law enforcement, EMS, Firefighter) then you have a good shot at employment and growth. Also if you work in Accounting, the medical field, and retail you can definitely find a job. Careers in the fine and liberal arts is rare. There are few opportunities for someone in that field. Plus the jobs that do exist around here do not make what their counterparts around the country are making.
