Laura Murillo 

My good friend Laura Murillo is on the front page of today’s Chron business section Texas Inc.  I think that is a first for a Latina. Maybe.  Here is the article: Q&A: Hispanics drive the local economy 12 months a year (houstonchronicle.com).  

Very cool.  

Laura is one of H-Town’s key civic and business leaders. She works her you know what off. She has done a spectacular job this past decade or so building up the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. 

She is also a huge local sports fan.  Back in 2017, State Sen. Carol Alvarado, former State Rep. Rick Noriega, Laura and myself, watched Game 7 of the 2017 World Series together at 8th Wonder Brewery.  Laura and Rick are a thing now if you know what I mean. 

State Rep. Chris Paddie tweeted this as a response to Scott Braddock reporting that at the Women’s Rally in H-Town, folks were chanting “F_ck Greg Abbott”:

Shut up you punk moron.  How often did you tweet about Donald Trump’s erosion of civility in politics?

This A-Hole is one of the reasons we still have a huge problem with the electric grid. Fu_k Paddie. He is worthless. 

Congrats to Yuli Gurriel for winning the AL batting title with a .319 batting average.
