Hidalgo County Commissioners appointed longtime county administrator Raul Silguero Jr. as Human Resources Director.
Silguero has served as the interim Human Resources Director, since the death of longtime director Esther Cortez.
“I want to bring policies and procedures that will make Hidalgo County the premier employer in county,” said Silguero.
Silguero began his career with the county in 2002 as an Executive Assistant to former Pct. 2 Commissioner Hector “Tito” Palacios. He also has served as director of the Budget and Management department.
The Human Resources Department provides County of Hidalgo employees with human resources services and support. The department’s goal is to promote a positive work experience that will reflect the highest values and build relationships based on trust, dignity, and diversity.
Under Silguero, the Human Resources Department serves three divisions: Personnel Administration Division, Program and Policy Development Division and the Classification and Compensation Division.
