Saluting my friends

Texas is fortunate to have a base of young, talented and hard-working Democrats representing us at the Democratic National Convention this summer in Denver, CO. From SD6, IBEW Local 716 Organizer Turner Wright was elected to serve as a Clinton National Delegate. Congratulations, Turner!

Remember, this process started on March 4th, just a few months ago. Running for Delegate takes a big amount of time away from family, work and other priorities. It's a big sacrifice! Since then Turner's been very active in the Party. His wife Ruth was there on Saturday with the kids, supporting Turner and graciously sharing her husband with a bunch of unruly Democrats.
The Wrights are now Denver-bound and deservedly so!

Here's Turner sticking it out at the SD6 Convention on March 29th in Houston:

Congratulations are also in order for TDP President Shondra Wygal, Houston Stonewall Young Democrat Victor Castillo and Dallas Young Democrat Paul Tran who were all elected Clinton National Delegates. Obama delegates going to Denver from Houston are State Representatives Ana E. Hernandez, Garnet Coleman and attorney Roland Garcia.
