Hidalgo County Commissioners Court recognized the Honorable Ernest Aliseda for his appointment to the University of Texas System Board of Regents. Appointed by Governor Rick Perry in February 2013, and confirmed by the Texas Senate in May, Aliseda will be serving a six-year term on the board and will take part on key decisions as they relate to the new university and the medical school.

Aliseda is a managing attorney for Loya Insurance Group and serves as a municipal court judge for City of McAllen. He has served as State District Judge for both 398th and 139th State District Courts, in addition to serving in various leadership capacities in the legal profession. Aliseda earned his undergraduate degree from Texas A & M University and received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Houston Law Center.

Aliseda stated that he was humbled to receive the recognition, attributing his accomplishments to his family, including his wife Debbie Crane Aliseda, current McAllen ISD School Board President, and his parents Laura and Jose Luis Aliseda, M. D., who were present at the recognition. Also in attendance were UTPA President Robert Nelsen and Provost Havidan Rodriguez. Nelsen praised Aliseda's appointment, echoing County Judge Ramon Garcia's sentiment that Hidalgo County and South Texas would now have a seat at the "proverbial table" when it comes to decisions about the University of Texas affecting our area.

Members of Commissioners Court congratulated Aliseda on his appointment to the U. T. System System Board of Regents, thanking him for his continued service to the residents of Hidalgo County.
