After careful consideration and consulting with his family, local and longtime Attorney Heriberto “Eddie” Morales has thrown his name into the 2020 Texas House District 74 State Representative race.
Morales held a press conference at his Eagle Pass home accompanied by his family, friends, and supporters to announce his decision.
“I am officially announcing that I will be seeking the State Representative position.“ stated Attorney Morales.
My upbringing and work experience for the past 44 years have prepared me for this next stage in life. I believe that it is time to continue giving back to the community at this level. I plan on representing all of the District 74 constituents. I am not a career politician and I do not have a personal agenda or owe anyone any special favors. My plan is to bring unity and common ground. This District deserves someone to represent them with transparency, integrity, and fiscal responsibility. But none of that is possible without your help, support and vote. Let us move forward together and I ask you to vote for me in the month of March.”
