Oscar-LongoriaMISSION—Representative Oscar Longoria (D-La Joya) announced Monday that he will seek a second term to the Texas House of Representatives for the Rio Grande Valley, District 35. Longoria is a freshman representative currently serving his first term in Austin.

Longoria’s campaign office said they are not aware of any opponent for this seat at this time. The first day to officially file for the March 4 Primary Election is Nov. 9, and the last day to file is Dec. 9.

Longoria’s House District 35 encompasses both Hidalgo and Cameron Counties in the Rio Grande Valley and includes the cities, or part of the cities of La Joya, Sullivan City, Peñitas, Alton, McAllen, Mission, Edinburg, Monte Alto, Edcouch, La Villa, Mercedes, Weslaco, Santa Rosa, Primera, Palm Valley, Combes, Harlingen, and La Feria.

During the 83rd Legislative Session, Rep. Longoria was appointed to the House Appropriations Committee, where he serves on the sub-committee for Articles I, IV, and V, and as Vice-Chairman of the Budget Transparency and Reform sub-committee. He is also an appointed member of the Investments & Financial Services Committee.

“It is a tremendous honor to serve the people of District 35 in the State House,” said Longoria. “I’m honored and humbled that the people of Hidalgo and Cameron counties have elected me once before and my hope is that I have earned their trust for another term.                 

“I have truly enjoyed being a part of the legislative process during my first term this session,” he said. “My intent is to ensure that our children and my constituents, not only in the Rio Grande Valley, but those across the entire State of Texas, receive the best care for generations to come and have their voices represented by me in the Texas House of Representatives.”
