BROWNSVILLE - The new Cameron County district attorney on Wednesday said he will work to regain the public's trust in his office.
Luis Saenz made the comments on his first day on the job. He was sworn in on Tuesday.
Saenz replaced Armando Villalobos. The former district attorney was indicted in the former Judge Abel Limas corruption case.
"It is very disconcerting when we go out of the county and people ask us where we are from ... and we say ‘Cameron County,' and we see them roll their eyes," Saenz said.
"We are going to make people proud of Cameron County ... proud of this office," he said.
Saenz served six years as Cameron County district attorney in the past before leaving the post to go into private practice.
