El Paso State Rep. Mary Gonzalez re-elected to key post


El Paso State Rep. Mary González was re-elected as the Vice Chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus (MALC) and as the secretary of the House Border Caucus.

“For months, the federal government has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars to detaining migrant families and children in Texas, while many in our communities are living without access to basic services such as hospitals, clean water, and wastewater infrastructure,” said Rep. González

González says she is honored to be re-elected and her appreciation for critical work will bring attention to the unique issues facing her voters. 

Established in 1973, MALC is the oldest and largest Latina/o legislative caucus in the country and third largest caucus in the Texas House of Representatives. 

The Texas House Border Caucus aims to address the challenges facing border communities, such as economic development, trade, infrastructure development and health.
