Newly elected State House member Diana Maldonado will serve as Secretary. Solomon Ortiz Jr. was elected as Treasurer and Veronica Gonzales will become the new Legal Counsel.

Ortiz stated in a press release, “It is an honor to serve my colleagues in a leadership role as MALC Treasurer. MALC has shown time and again that is a force to be reckoned with legislatively and an important advocate for the Hispanic community and all Texans.”

MALC was founded in 1973, it is a non-profit, non-partisan organization composed of over 40 members of the Texas House of Representatives committed to addressing the issues that Latinos face across the state of Texas.
