Someone asked me about the Latino line-up on the 2012 ballot, so, I figured I’d make a post with a list of them–at least from the Democratic side of things. So, here we go (incumbents in bold):
Mario V. Gallegos, Jr. – Texas Senate District 6
Armando Walle – Texas House, District 140
Ana Hernandez-Luna – Texas House, District 143
Mary Ann Perez – Texas House, District 144
Carol Alvarado – Texas House, District 145
Jessica Farrar – Texas House, District 148
Julia Maldonado – 14th Court of Appeals, Place 8
Michael Gomez – Judge, 129th District
Josefina Rendon – Judge, 165th District
Ruben Guerrero – Judge, 174th District
David L. Mendoza – Judge, 178th District
Adrian Garcia – Sheriff
Jo Ann Delgado – JP Pct 2 – 1
Richard Vara – JP Pct 6 – 1
Chris Diaz – Constable Pct 2
Victor Trevino – Constable Pct 6
Silvia Mintz – County School Trustee Pos 4, Pct 3
And if anyone else asks about other political parties, I will say there are four Spanish-surnames on the “right-wing” of the ballot. And if I counted correctly, there are also three running “green.”
This answers questions from a few readers regarding the number of Latinos on the ballot. Enjoy!
Are the other candidates in the “right wing” and “green” parties not Latinos to you?
If they identify as Latinos, then they are, but I was pretty clear that I was listing the Democrats, since I am one.
