The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs Committee will hold its legislative update with a presentation from U. S. Congressman Vicente Gonzalez, who represents the 15th Congressional District of Texas.
Set for Monday, Oct. 30, the luncheon will be held from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Edinburg Conference Center at Renaissance at 118 Paseo Del Prado in Edinburg. Tickets are $20 per person, and tables of eight are available at $200 per table.
Vicente Gonzalez serves in the United States Congress as the elected representative of the 15th District of Texas, which encompasses the counties of Brooks, Duval, Jim Hogg, Karnes, and Live Oak as well as portions of Guadalupe, Hidalgo, and Wilson counties.
Gonzalez earned his GED in 1985 before attending Del Mar College where he received an Associate’s degree in Banking and Finance in 1990. He worked his way through college at Embry Riddle University where many of his classmates were active duty military personnel. He earned a BS degree in Business Aviation in 1992 and later earned a J. D. from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in 1996.
Rep. Gonzalez says he was influenced by his father, a Korean War veteran, to help individuals fight for their rights and practiced law for 20 years. In Congress, Gonzalez said his priorities include fighting to protect Social Security and Medicare and to ensure that veterans, military members, and their families have the care and compensation they earned.
