Congressman Vela has deep roots in South Texas. Born in Harlingen and raised in Brownsville, he and his family have shown a commitment to public service and to communities across Texas’ 34th Congressional District.
As a member of the House Armed Service Committee, including the Tactical Air and Land Forces and the Sea Power and Projection Forces Subcommittees, Congressman Vela actively supports the missions of Naval Air Station Kingsville, Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, and Corpus Christi Army Depot, and troops deployed across the globe.
On the House Agriculture Committee he has been instrumental in passing a Farm Bill that includes support for farmers and ranchers in South Texas and provides critical investments in our rural economy.
The 34th Congressional District needs a bold leader, willing to stand up for what’s right. That’s exactly the leadership Filemon Vela has delivered.
