UT host the African American Legislative Summit 2007

This year the University of Texas at Austin and the Heman Sweatt Symposium on Civil Rights hosted the annual African American Legislative Summit. They invited many African American Legislators, both state and congressional, as well as many knowledgeable speakers to attend and participate in the summit. The whole event was a true success. I was very pleased to see so many of my constituents as well as many others make the trip to Austin. It means so much to us legislators to see our constituents show their support by participating.

Panel discussion were held on a wide variety of subjects from health and education to electricity and leadership. One of the highlight events of the summit was the discussion on TSU and Prairie View A&M. The dialogue that took place between the audience and us legislators was very productive. We were especially focused on the issue of a conservatorship over TSU. The ideas, concerns, and suggestion made during the panel discussion will not go unheard.

Thank you to UT, everyone who came to be a part of this wonderful event, and to all my fellow colleagues who took the time out of their busy schedules to show our constituent that we really do care.
