MCALLEN, Texas – McAllen-based attorney Samuel Reyes tells the Rio Grande Guardian he will be attending the dinner and fundraiser being held by Hidalgo County Democratic Party at the Valencia Event Center.

The party’s annual fundraise takes place Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The address of the Valencia is 3012 S. Jackson Road, McAllen.

Reyes has announced his candidacy for chairman of the Hidalgo County Democratic Party. He is currently a vice chairman of the party. 

“I’m prepared to carry the torch forward to keep Hidalgo County blue in 2022 and beyond,” Reyes said. “I pledge that if elected, the County Democratic Party will reach out to every elected Democrat and Democratic candidate in the county to ensure communication and teamwork as we work to keep and put more Democrats in office. We will increase our grass roots presence and focus on directly serving the needs of our community”

Reyes was raised in McAllen and has been practicing law since 2008. He obtained his B.B.A. in Marketing from the University of Texas at Austin and his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law in 2007. He is a former Hidalgo County Assistant District Attorney and has managed his own firm, Law Office of Samuel Reyes PLLC since 2010. He currently serves as board member of the Hidalgo County Bar Association and Foundation. 

Reyes has served the Hidalgo County Democratic Party for the last several years as a precinct chair, legal advisor, and board member. He says he intends to work with local leaders, elected officials, and the general public to help bring about a more unified and educated populace. 

“The goal is to educate and motivate the public on how important it is to get involved, get educated, and vote, especially in these uncertain times.” Reyes said. “I want the county party to not only be accessible and transparent to meet the needs of the community but also to actively engage the community through more service events and outreach.”

Reyes said he is calling for unity among all Democrats. 

“In the face of renewed efforts from the opposition to suppress the vote, now is the time more than ever for Democrats and Democratic and progressive organizations to put aside differences and come together with the common goal of strengthening our community and our democracy.”
