AUSTIN–We sometimes wish we could look into another person’s heart and mind and try to understand why they feel as they do. I do not know why Dan Ramos, the current Bexar County Democratic Party Chairman, would be moved to make the remarks he recently made which were hateful, small-minded and contrary to all we stand for as Democrats. Dan Ramos’s attitudes are the type of which all people should stand against and reject.
I join the many who have called on Dan Ramos to resign and if he does not, then not to run again, and if he does run, I call on Bexar County Democrats to defeat him. Soundly!
In the meantime, we should pray for Dan Ramos. He seems to be a tortured, unhappy and sad individual.
Also Appointed to Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence Committee; Will Head Effort to Protect Children, Medicaid and CHIP
Austin – Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, (R-San Antonio) today named Representative Richard Peña Raymond (D-Laredo) as Chairman of the crucial Human Services Committee that will take the lead role in protecting children, as well as the Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP).
Rep. Raymond’s appointment comes as vital state initiatives are facing a projected deficit of over $26 billion. Part of Chairman Raymond’s task will be to defend Health security for hard-working families and to maintain a Child Protective Services Agency that will truly protect our most vulnerable children.
“I consider this assignment as vital to Laredo, the Rio Grande Valley and all of Texas. How we move forward on Medicaid and CHIP is vital to the health care of thousands of Texans and to our economy,” said Chairman Raymond.
