Mission Graduate Running for County Clerk

Recently, I had the good fortune of running into Balde Morales at an Hidalgo County Democrats event. I picked up one of the push cards and saw that he was a former Mission High School student. Obviously, he lived here. So, here is more information I got from the push card.


Education

  • Mission High School
  • University of Texas-Pan American
    • BBA-Finance
    • BA Political Science
    • MBA-Master of Business Administration

Experience

  • Hidalgo County Clerk-Courts Manager
  • Banking and financial institution
  • Home Construction Business
  • Adjunct Professor-South Texas College

Community Involvement

  • Sharyland Lion's Club
  • NSHMBA (National Society of Hispanic MBAs)
  • Baptist Temple McAllen, Texas.

Balde may be one of those former residents worth watching. No doubt he has accomplished much and will continue to do more.

I saw Mr. Morales at the Candidate's Announcement in Pharr a couple of weeks ago and came away very impressed.

Out of all 4 candidates he seems to have the perfect mix of education and experience that that is needed to stand out above our often scandalized political county setting.

More than that though, he was extremely friendly, and that said a lot to me. I told him about the trouble that I've had, and we talked about his vision for the clerk's office to remedy such situations.

In looking around for the other candidates, one candidate didn't bother to attend, another was too busy with his wife or date, and the other was just plain rude in just keeping to himself and only speaking to certain people.

I encourage anyone looking for a positive change leading to the bettership of Valley politics to vote for Mr. Balde Morales for Hidalgo County Clerk.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It's possible that we may have to deal with one of the candidates as an employee of Hidalgo County. It's good to know who is more in tune with the public. If you have any more experiences you'd like to share, go right ahead.
