State Rep. Carol Alvarado talks about life and politics with South Houston High students on Wednesday.
Carol Alvarado, state representative from District 145, told students at South Houston High School on Wednesday to start making plans. For college. And for lifetime participation in the political process.
Alvarado, who has no Republican opponent in her re-election bid this fall, told students that the day may come soon when Americans elect a Hispanic as president. She said that can only happen when Hispanics take a greater role in leadership positions. And the key to that, she said, is for more Hispanics to go to college and get a degree.
She urged the students to register to vote when they turn 18 and urged those already of voting age to get out and vote in next month's General Election.
