AARP Texas officials announced today that veteran TV broadcast journalist Juanita Jiménez-Soto has been hired as the new Associate State Director of Communications, serving the Houston and Rio Grande Valley markets.

“We’re redoubling our efforts at the local community level in order to better serve 50+ Texans and their families,” said Bob Jackson, AARP State Director. “There is important work to do in Houston and the Valley on key issues such as financial security, livable communities, payday lending and long-term care and we look forward to Ms. Jiménez-Soto’s contributions as a seasoned communicator.”
