EDINBURG, Texas – Hidalgo County has a new judge in town. He was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott.

In his second attempt, Jaime Tijerina was finally sworn in this afternoon as justice of the 13th Court of Appeals. Tijerina is a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and currently serves as a Lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves. He says was unable to accept the position the first time around because he was called for service in Afghanistan.

“I hope I can fulfill all of those obligations and duties that I have for the community so that when I’m done, that they’re proud of the work that I’ve done.”

Tijerina says he is extremely grateful for this opportunity
