Citizens of Hidalgo County:
I am Ricardo Rodriguez, Jr., and I am asking for your support to be the next District Attorney for Hidalgo County. My commitment to the beliefs, principles and values of fairness, equality, and justice, along with my years of legal practice, judicial experience, and public service, make me the ideal candidate to represent the people of Hidalgo County in this capacity.
I was born to a 16-year-old mother and a 17-year-old father whose education only reached the 8th grade. I grew up in a hard-working life of humble beginnings, picking crops in fields throughout the state and across the country. But my parents’ drive and determination for their children to achieve more was constant and persistent… truly, the American dream. I know my siblings and I have made our parents proud and lived up to our potential so far. Yet I have always wanted to do more.
As an attorney, as a City Councilmember, and as a State District Judge, I offer you, the citizens of this great County, my years of education and expertise and my vision of new leadership and progressive ideas that will be put to use as “The People’s District Attorney.” I am a true believer in the idea of justice. I stand by the principles of this great nation: government of the people, by the people, and for the people. I humbly ask for you to stand with me, and support me as your next Hidalgo County District Attorney.
I invite you to join my campaign. This website will serve to keep you connected and engaged with me during the next few months. Share our message of change with your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
With your support, I will be the next Hidalgo County District Attorney, "The People's DA."
