Oscar-LongoriaState Rep. Oscar Longoria, D-La Joya, officially filed as a candidate for re-election in Texas House District 35, which encompasses parts of Hidalgo and Cameron Counties.

“It is a tremendous honor to serve the people of District 35 in the Texas House of Representatives,” Longoria said. “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.”

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.

“I’ve been in the Legislature for little more than a year now, but that’s been long enough to see how badly our state needs strong leadership committed to accountability, innovation, and the willingness to work across party lines to get things done for our state,” Longoria said.

“I have truly enjoyed being a part of the legislative process during my first term this session. 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 and quality-of-life for generations to come.”

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