EDINBURG — District 41 State Representative Veronica Gonzales will be the upcoming Vice President of Advancement at the University of Texas at Pan American. The job entails fundraising and marketing for the university and Gonzales says she loved serving the public, but missed being able to interact with the community, "I think that this is a great opportunity to do something that is going to fulfill that passion in me and that is going to give me a chance to give back. It will be a complete career change, but an exciting one." Gonzales has been a state representative for nearly eight years and she will be resigning her seat next month.
