Interview with Rita Lucido

Rita Lucido

We come now to legislative interviews. While I’ve done a lot of these in years past, my schedule this year just didn’t allow for that. I’ve only got two interviews with legislative candidates to share with you, but both are top-notch contenders who are also people I’ve known for a long time and consider friends. First up is Rita Lucido, who is taking on the big challenge of running against Sen. Joan Huffman in SD17. Lucido is a family law attorney (her law partner is Sherri Cothrun, candidate for the 311th family Court) and longtime activist with organizations like Houston Area Women’s Center, AVANCE Support and Education Program-Houston, and Planned Parenthood, as well as being a co-founder of Jane’s Due Process, whose mission is to ensure legal representation for pregnant minors in Texas. In short, she’s exactly the kind of voice we could use more of in the Senate. Here’s the interview:

One more legislative interview this week, then statewide candidates after that.
