A look at the Texas legislative representatives from a personal point of view.
This paper, written in first person, is a personal examination by a regular citizen as to who represents her in the government and what their ideologies are. It begins at the local municipal level and moves up to Congressmen.
“One of the basic human rights in America is the right to representation. However, this right does very little good if people simply listen to the ads at election time, send their representative off to Washington or Austin, and then never have anything to do with them again. People need to know who their representatives are, and what they represent. This paper helped me to come to a better understanding of who was representing me.”
