More on the Joy of Policy...

It’s beyond special when you discover that one of your former undergraduate students who took your classes 20 years ago—and his other two siblings, too, and who also happens to be related to your husband—that he is a legislator in the Texas State Legislature soon completing his second term.

I always knew that Alex Dominguez would get into politics. Rep. Dominguez represents District 37, part of Cameron County.

He spoke at yesterday’s press conference in support of Rep. Morales’ HB 1504 (see earlier post), after which he took notice and exclaimed, “Dr. V?” (Which is what all of the students at Rice University used to call me when I was a professor of sociology there.)

Then the hugging began!

I'm pretty sure I shed a tear or two. 😢💓😆
