My Respect for Ann Richards

Ann Richards had my respect. I am saddened by her death. I have two things for which I am grateful to Gov. Richards: South Texas College and The University of Texas-Pan American. Both of these institutions have been there for both my wife and for me to improve ourselves. That is something for which I am eternally grateful.
Even though she was a Democrat, I respected Ann Richards because she said what she meant. I like people who are candid. Perhaps I may have disagreed with the Governor on some issues, but I knew where she stood and why she was doing what she was doing. Others in public office should learn from such a great person like Gov. Richards and try to emulate her forthright manner. I am proud to have had Ann Richards as my governor.
