Alex Dominguez for State Representative District 37

AlexDancyBrownsville, TX – Cameron County Commissioner Alex Dominguez of Brownsville is on the May 22 ballot to be the State Representative for District 37 for the Democratic Party. Mr. Dominguez has been a county commissioner since June 2014. Mr. Dominguez has closely followed the previous two legislative sessions and feels he is ready to lead District 37 in Austin.

“I’ve worked with three different county judges and four different commissioners. I have enjoyed working for the public as a county commissioner and will continue to do so for the next year. I hope to use my experience with county government to help state lawmakers craft quality legislation.

“As a county commissioner, we determine the county budget, establish county policies, address indigent health care services and work for the betterment of the quality of life of those in the county. Since joining the commissioners court, we joined the effort to bring Space X to Brownsville, implemented vast improvements to county parks including Isla Blanca and E.K. Atwood on South Padre Island, and negotiated several economic incentive agreements to bring much needed jobs to the area. In my own precinct, I worked to finish the street paving project in Cameron Park, bringing street lights to Olmito and San Pedro, addressing the clean water needs of residents of San Pedro, and introducing the first all-inclusive playground in the county.

“I currently represent Cameron County on the Brownsville MPO, the Lower Rio Grande Development Council, the Brownsville EDC, the Animal Shelter Committee, the county Audit Committee, and in Austin with the Conference of Urban Counties (CUC). At the CUC, I recently became the Vice-Chairman for Administration on the Policymaking Committee in Austin. I also served as the active judge pro-tem when former Judge Carlos Cascos was appointed the Secretary of State.

“I believe that District 37 needs a representative who will not only represent the public during the legislative session, but will also work in coordination with the County Commissioners Court and city commissions to bring much needed jobs, infrastructure, and exposure of what this area has to offer for the full two years of the term. As a former educator, I want to be a voice for students at UTRGV to push for their education needs.”

District 37 includes Brownsville, South Padre Island, Port Isabel, Los Fresnos, and Rio Hondo.
