Graciela (Gracie) Saenz became the first Latina to hold the city-wide office of Houston Council Member At Large Position 1, in 1991. She served three two-year terms and became the first Latina Mayor Pro-Tem, appointed by then Mayor Bob Lanier.

A Houston native, Gracie grew up in Fifth Ward in a family of nine, and from a very young age, worked to uphold her father’s standards of not disparaging her good name, working diligently and ethically for her family and community. She attended Houston public schools and graduated from the University of Houston and went on to the University of Houston Law Center. She has been a practicing attorney for 35 years. With a sincere desire to serve others, Gracie continues to support AAMA and be an example of community leadership. We applaud her work for our city! #AAMA50

About AAMA’s Mission

For more than 50 years, AAMA has helped Latinos achieve their potential. We've motivated youth to finish school and encouraged many to go on to college. We've taught immigrant adults to communicate in English and have guided scores of them to gain the knowledge they need to become contributing United States citizens. We've prepared them to enter workforce development courses and secure livable wage jobs. We've helped both youth and adults break the cycle of addiction and make positive choices that improve the quality of their lives. AAMA has empowered men, women and children to pursue their dreams and inspired leaders within the community. In short, AAMA has helped tens of thousands of Latinos to achieve. To be truly amazing.

Hello Eagles...for 11 years I was your Director of Security. For 10 of those years I sponsored the Senior Class and held the annual BBQ fundraiser for the school prom. I am asking for everyone to come out and support Deputy Juarez who from 2005-2007 worked security at the school. The plates are $8.00 there will be live music, DJ, raffles and auction. Of course there will be some ice cold adult beverages. Hope to you at 55 Berry Rd @ Nick's Drive Inn. 10a - till the music stops.

ESPERANDO EL DESTINO another noir fiction of Alejandro Marin www.cortemoslacarajo.blogspot.com A story that begins in a charity party in the south of Spain; continues through Asunción, capital of Paraguay; ciudad del Este, capital of unlawful activities and finishes in Buenos Aires. Our now friends, Jordi Gonorria, economist who also plays the role of amateur “chef” and the former police inspector Quito Verdudo, rub shoulders with the human trafficking mafia and with the politicians that rig them. A tough story, traced by a doomed fate, that even though some passages may amuse us, in others load us with the anguish produced by this modern way of enslaving and abusing of the helpless. As it is already a custom, they are accompanied by the usual friends and characters emerged from the story, the literature and even from the movies. And they end up stumbling with astonishing revelations of current issues which the media published in front pages not long ago. In the itinerary, our economist-cook some time enjoys and others bears his emotional and erotic hieroglyphs. And he makes time to offer us delicious dishes, kitchen stories and hot news about economy and economists. Available (in spanish) AMAZON KINDLE store.
