IMG_5851

Federal, state, and local elected officials, community representatives, county department heads, current and former staff, family, and Commissioners Court surprised Precinct 4 Commissioner Joseph Palacios with a celebration of his eight years of service to the residents of his precinct and Hidalgo County with messages of love, support and best wishes.

"I am extremely humbled to be honored by such great individuals today," Palacios said. "I am thankful for the public service I have been able to provide to the constituents of Hidalgo County. As I see my mother and family in the audience I must also thank them for instilling in me the need to serve."

Commissioner Palacios was presented with a gavel used at the capitol by Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa, two flags flown over the capitol by State Rep. Armando "Mando" Martinez and the Office of Congressman Vicente Gonzalez, and a Congressional Certificate of Recognition by the Office of Congressman Henry Cuellar. Other speakers included Criminal District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez, 449th District Court Judge Renee Rodriguez-Betancourt, MPO President Andrew Cannon, Sabrina Walker from the Boys and Girls Club, Chief Oscar Montoya and Chief Roy Quintanilla from the Sheriff's Office, Raul Sesin and Jaime Salazar from the Drainage District, Yolanda Chapa from the County Judge's Office, and Martha Sanchez from L.U.P.E.

During his two terms as the Precinct 4 Commissioner, Palacios' office invested and completed dozens of drainage, road and quality of life projects for residents. This includes the Raymondville Drain, the 10th Street Expansion Project, the opening of the Endowment Community Center, and much more. Palacios' goal was to stretch the tax dollar so many of these projects were done in house or in partnership with city, state or community organizations.

Palacios also thanked his staff.

"I couldn’t do all that I’ve done without the assistance of my staff that allow for my plans to reach the end goal. I am grateful for my time and look forward to what the future may bring."

Commissioners Court presented Palacios with a clock plaque and a video highlighting his two consecutive terms in office.
