Hidalgo County is home to one of the fastest growing regions in the nation. We provide health and justice to the approximately 900,000 residents of our county as well as a variety of services offered by our four precinct offices to residents who live outside city limits. We partner with the cities in our county on services, special projects and economic development. We strive to be accessible and responsive to our citizens. We are committed to providing excellent public service through the values of leadership, transparency, collaboration, fairness, respect and fiscal responsibility.
The county is divided into four precincts and is overseen by five elected officials. Each precinct is served by a Commissioner. Together with the County Judge, they comprise the Commissioners Court, which oversee and govern county business. The County Judge presides over Commissioners Court and serves as the County Administrator.
The Commissioners are:
- Pct. 1 Commissioner David L. Fuentes
- Pct. 2 Commissioner Eduardo "Eddie" Cantu
- Pct. 3 Commissioner Everardo "Ever" Villareal
- Pct. 4 Commissioner Ellie Torres.
