State Rep. Yvonne Gonzalez Toureilles (D-Alice), whose House District includes Bee County, made her re-election bid for House District 35 official this week by filing the necessary documents and paying her filing fees at the Texas Democratic Party Headquarters in Austin.

House District 35 includes the counties of Atascosa, Bee, Goliad, Jim Wells, Karnes, Live Oak and McMullen.

“I announced some time back my intention to seek re-election,” Rep. Gonzalez Toureilles said. “Today’s filing simply makes it official.”

She chairs the House Agriculture and Livestock Committee and is a member of the House Energy Resources Committee. She is seeking her fourth term as House District 35 state representative.

“For nearly seven years, I have strived to represent the values and needs of the families that live in our largely rural region, Gonzalez Toureilles said. “I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of South Texas residents.”

During the 81st Legislative Regular Session which ended in May, the representative effectively championed legislation strengthening landowner rights, expanding research and development of agricultural biomass as an alternative fuel and limiting access to personal information maintained by discount health card providers. She also carried legislation streamlining sales tax exemptions for certain agricultural operations and establishing a statewide mechanism to raise cancer research funds.

Gonzalez Toureilles is a resident of Alice, where she lives with her husband, Marc, and their two children, Genevieve and Christopher John Marc. She manages her own private law practice in Alice.
