Alex Dominguez - State Representative-Elect

About Alex  

Alex Dominguez is the Texas State Representative for District 37. He represents Brownsville, Los Fresnos, Port Isabel, Rio Hondo, Arroyo City, Laguna Vista, and South Padre Island.

"I'm the 6th of 10 children born to a migrant farmworker family. We didn't have much financially as you can imagine. But we did have faith, family, and a strong belief in education. Seven of us have been or are currently teachers or administrators. For the past 22 years, my family and some great friends have been hosting a 5K Scholarship Race from which the proceeds go to high school seniors. I've been on that board forever. I've also been a board member of CASA of Cameron and Willacy Counties since 2012. Kids matter.

“I was the County Commissioner for Pct. 2 for 4 1/2 years. I worked with three different county judges, four different commissioners and numerous elected officials. I have enjoyed working for the public as a county commissioner and will continue to do so as your representative. I'm excited. I believe I have the energy, experience, and awareness to be a great state representative."

Alex served on the Brownsville MPO, the Lower Rio Grande Development Council, the Animal Shelter Committe, the county Audit Committee, and the Brownsville EDC. In 2017, he was elevated from the policy committee of the Conference of Urban Counties to their board of directors where he is the Vice Chairman for Administration. He was also a board member of CASA of Cameron and Willacy counties for 6 years.

“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."

Ready to lead this district in Austin and still be available to everyone back home.

“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.
