Stevenson Unit will celebrate 20th anniversary May 13

 

“I can’t believe its been 20 years.”
 
That is the general sentiment in Cuero as TDCJ Stevenson Unit prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary Tuesday, May 13, at 10 a.m. at the prison.
 
Asking the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to consider Cuero for a prison became a hot topic here in 1991.
 
The economy in Cuero was in a slump and Texas was launching a massive prison expansion program. After learning TDCJ has chosen other South Texas cities for new prisons, community leaders here called a town hall meeting.
 
Representatives of TDCJ spoke to residents of the economic benefits of having a prison, the standing room only crowd unanimously voiced support for submitting a proposal.
