My name is  Richard  D. Solis and I am a  Brownsville  native.   I attended  BISD  schools graduating  from  Hanna   High School in  1987. I attended  the  University of Texas at  Brownsville where  I  received  a Bachelor's Degree in  Criminal Justice. I was employed  with  the  Cameron  County  Juvenile  Probation  Department   for 25  years as a Probation  Supervisor  and Retired in 2021.
