The city of Vidor has started a marketing campaign to attract more residents. The effort is a part of the city's "Pride and Progress initiative.

"We had never done a media campaign and we just thought it would be a good way to get the message out," says David Slaughter, a Vidor city councilman. Slaughter says the city is offering tax abatements and other incentives for people who want to move to the city and build homes.

The goal of the campaign is to make residents of the Golden Triangle consider moving to Vidor instead of other areas. "We want to be able to compete with these guys for new citizens and new residents to move in," says Slaughter.

Council members say they're discussing more ways to advertise the city.
