The Texas Public Policy and Candidate Training is excellent (I mean, really excellent), especially for those interested in ever running for office or working on a campaign or just being active in her community.
I’ve talked about this training before with the hopes that women in Laredo would consider taking the leap and joining this great opportunity. I emailed the founder and asked about Laredo applications. I am sure you can guess what the response was:
Hola XXXXXX..no one from Laredo even asked for an application…bummer.
Wonder why…was it the program? The requirements, etc. or lack of interest. What do you think?
con cariño, nora
Sigh… the deadline has passed and interviews are taking place with the hope of having a new class by this coming Monday. If there were any women still interested, I bet she can still get all the info in by talking to the organizers. These are the program dates:
We plan to advise people about selection for class by Monday.
Mil gracias for trying.

At least read a little bit more about it: and consider it for next year. Heck, I might even offer a scholarship for a Laredo woman to attend since we don’t see any other women’s organization stepping up to promote leadership in Laredo. If you do want more information, check out the TTP-ACT.
