Interview with Vy Nguyen

Vy Nguyen

Fort Bend County is one of the most diverse places in America, with roughly equal shares of Anglo, African-American, Hispanic, and Asian populations. It’s fast-growing, now with three full State Rep. districts and a part of a fourth, and becoming more and more blue – President Obama received 48.5% of the vote in 2008, and local Dems have high hopes that he can win the county this year. HD26 was held for a long time by the now-retiring Rep. Charlie Howard, and to keep that district as Republican as possible the Lege had to slice and dice its mostly Asian neighborhoods until the district resembled a bizarre video game character. Running to spoil those efforts is Vy Nguyen. She is the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants and runs her own law firm as a civil litigation attorney. Nguyen is an adjunct professor at her alma mater, Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law, and if elected would be the first Vietnamese-American female State Legislator in the United States. Here’s the interview:
