Commissioner - El Paso County

Vince Perez was elected to represent the people of Precinct 3 on the El Paso County Commissioners Court in November of 2012. As commissioner, he represents more than 200,000 residents in the cities of El Paso, Socorro, Horizon, San Elizario, and the majority of unincorporated communities in El Paso County such as Fabens, Tornillo, Montana Vista, Agua Dulce, Sparks, and several municipal utility districts east of Loop 375.

Perez is a vocal advocate for reforming El Paso County's criminal justice system. He has fought to reduce the high costs that El Paso taxpayers pay for jailing low-income, low-risk individuals, as well as those with mental health conditions in the county jail system.

He has also advocated for key reforms to improve accountability in the areas of budget management, and has fought to strengthen transparency and financial oversight over all elected and non-elected departments in El Paso County's government. He has fought for improvements to county parks, public transit, new road, water and waste water infrastructure, and increased access to health care in the most impoverished and fastest growing areas of the county.
