Interview with Sylvia Romo

Sylvia Romo

One of the most closely watched Congressional primaries this cycle will be in the new CD35, the district to which Rep. Lloyd Doggett moved after redistricting and the second interim map made his CD25 hostile territory. In this Austin-to-San Antonio district he will face Sylvia Romo, who announced her candidacy in that district very early on. Romo has been an elected official for 20 years, having served as the Bexar County Tax Assessor since 1996, with a stint in the Texas Legislature for two terms prior to that. She was the first Latina elected to countywide office in Bexar, and if she wins this race she will be the first Latina elected to Congress from Texas. Here’s what we talked about:
