Nina Perales with MALDEF just said this about Travis County voters:
“CD 25 is not a coalition district. It has a very small Black population and a small, ineffective Latino population.”
I beg to differ! MALDEF’s disrespect for, and dismissal of, Austin’s Hispanic and Black voters knows no bounds. Hispanics in Austin are NOT ineffective. Hispanics and Blacks both have much sway in Travis County – anyone can see that in the number of minority officeholders our coalition has elected.
