Stace Medellin is a native of Crystal City, Texas, born and raised during the height of La Raza Unida Party–a Chicano political third party that achieved much success in the 70s and changed the face of the Texas Democratic Party. He has lived in the Houston area since 1998, and now enjoys living in the Sharpstown community.
With a foundation that included helping family members’ political campaigns, attending political rallies, and being a part of an activist family, it’s not surprising that Stace continues his work as an activist in various political causes, in Chicano/Latino politics and issues, and in the blogosphere as the editor and blogger for http://www.DosCentavos.net.
Professionally, Stace has worked in the field of university student services and in corporate human resources development, but a love for politics and campaigns “forced” a change in careers in which Stace gained experience in all facets of political campaigning–as a volunteer and as a professional. Doing what he loves and does best, Stace is the proud owner of Stace Medellin Communications, which assists candidates, nonprofits, and businesses to develop and deliver their respective messages to audiences.
Along with managing Congressional, Texas House, and City Council campaigns, he has also provided professional advice and translation services to several other Texas statewide and Houston campaigns. Stace is also a public speaker and seminar presenter on various topics, including progressive issues and Latino/Chicano political empowerment. Recently, he has also appeared on traditional and internet radio shows.
Stace earned a Master of Science in Education with a concentration in training and performance improvement from Capella University, and also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from SW Texas State University.
DosCentavos.net was founded by A.S. (Stace) Medellin in April, 2005. With a goal to target the Chicano and Latino community, DosCentavos soon began to enjoy a diverse readership beyond Houston, TX. As a socio-political weblog, DosCentavos covers local, state, and national politics, Latino music, arts, and culture, and much more.
DosCentavos.net is a member of the Texas Progressive Alliance.
