As one of Hidalgo County’s newest state representatives, Oscar Longoria (District 35), is already actively engaged in legislative issues important to South Texas.
State Representative District 35 was created last year during the re-districting process. The district covers a broad, mostly rural, area stretching from La Joya in Western Hidalgo County, swinging north around Mission, McAllen and Edinburg, then dipping south and taking in a slice of northern Weslaco and Harlingen. Local cities included in the new district are La Joya, Sullivan, Peñitas and just a small part of far northwest McAllen.
