Today, Governor Greg Abbott appointed Julian Alvarez of Harlingen to the Texas Workforce Commission. He will serve as one of three Commissioners charged with overseeing and providing workforce development services to employers and job seekers in Texas.
Mr. Alvarez previously served as president and CEO of the Rio Grande Valley Partnership fostering relationships and coordinating programs to advance regional economic development. I have worked with Mr. Alvarez over many years and I am confident that he has the experience and leadership to effectively guide the agency.
Julian Alvarez has invaluable knowledge that will be a tremendous asset for the Workforce Commission. I look forward to working with Mr. Alvarez on finding solutions to serve the workforce development needs of Texans.
We are proud to have a Rio Grande Valley native represented on such a critical state agency. Congratulations Mr. Alvarez!
