My mom and I reflect on our wonderful experience meeting, talking and walking along the duck pond in Gina’s neighborhood where she grew up as she talked about her life and running for Congress.
Gina Ortiz Jones talks about her mother’s impact on her life, getting an ROTC scholarship, being an Air Force Intelligence Officer in the military and now her political path in the 23rd District of Texas’s Congressional race.
When we asked her about the impact her mother has had on her life, Gina Ortiz Jones says, “My story starts 40 years ago when my mom came to this country. She wanted a chance at the American Dream. She told us ‘prepare yourself, work hard and give back.’ It was my mother’s example that showed me the importance of protecting the opportunities I was so fortunate to have being born in this Country.”
