Another commissioner candidate adds name to list

HARLINGEN — Richard Uribe has filed seeking election for Harlingen City Commissioner, District 1.

He is seeking the position currently held by Danny Castillo. As of yesterday, nobody else had filed for the position, including Castillo.

Uribe is a familiar face to many as he has been the general manger of Los Asados restaurant in Harlingen for the past 13 years.

He also serves as general manager of the new Los Asados in McAllen.

Uribe graduated from Harlingen High School in 1992 and then went on to study criminal justice at the University of Texas — Pan American in Edinburg.

He currently is on the Harlingen WaterWorks System board of directors. He served as Chairman of that Board in 2015. He was Chairman of the St. Paul Lutheran School Board in 2010.

“I feel I have the background and experience to make good business decisions for not only the citizens who live in District One but the Harlingen community as a whole,” Uribe said. “I want to be involved in making good decisions for the future growth of this great community.”

He and his wife, Veronica, have four children, Richard II, Kaitlyn Nicole, Lauren Grace and Jose Luis.
