First of all, congrats to State Senator Sylvia Garcia who was elected by her peers as Vice-Chair of the Senate Hispanic Caucus. She joins another one of my favorites, State Senator Jose Rodriguez, who will serve as Chair.
Senator Jose Rodriguez said: “I look forward to continuing work on pressing issues for the state, especially those highlighted by the Latino Summit that took place in Austin in October — immigration reform, education funding, access to healthcare, economic opportunities and civic engagement.”
Senator Garcia said: “I’m looking forward to serving as the Vice Chair of the Senate Hispanic Caucus with my good friend and new Chairman Jose Rodriguez. We worked very well together during the legislative session and while organizing the 2013 Latino Summit.
