Last week some of us were taken by surprise when HISD Trustee Diana Davila abruptly resigned from the Board of Education.  Well it looks like the first candidate to succeed her has emerged.  UH-Downtown Political Science Professor Adolfo Santos is expressing an interest in replacing Davila.  Santos’ resume is being passed around by respected H-Town Latino business and professional leaders.  In recent years, Santos has regularly submitted Op-Eds for publication to the Chron.  Stay tuned!

41’s grandson and 43’s nephew, George P. Bush, is today kicking off his Hispanic Republicans of Texas group to get more Latinos to vote for GOPers.  First of all, he should have called his group Latino Republicans of Texas or Tejano Republicans.  If this new group has any you know whats, they will immediately call out their party on immigration reform.  Stay tuned!
