Statement from the President on the Retirement of Representative Charlie GonzalezBy USGOV
Monday, November 28, 2011
For a combined 50 years, Charlie Gonzalez and his father have represented Texas' 20th Congressional district in the United States House of Representatives. In Congress, Charlie has fought tirelessly for a cleaner environment, Wall Street reform and more accessible health care for Texans. As Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, he has worked nonstop to deliver much needed relief to deserving immigrant families and to protect the civil rights of Latinos and all Americans. Michelle and I wish him and his family the very best and join the people of Texas in thanking him for his many years of service.
