Interview with BGTX Summer Fellow Elizabeth Garcia

I trust by now you are familiar with the mission on Battleground Texas. With the Wendy Davis filibuster and all that’s been going on in the Legislature lately, it feels like they arrived at just the right time. But Battleground Texas isn’t about any one event, it’s about building infrastructure and investing in the future. One way in which they are doing that is with their Summer Fellows program, in which some 200 students have come to Texas for six weeks of their summer to register voters, engage with supporters, and build neighborhood teams to continue doing this work after the summer ends. There are three BGTX Summer Fellows in the Fort Bend area – Juanita hosted a reception for them at her house the other day – with numerous others working in the greater Houston area. I had the opportunity to meet one of the FB Fellows, Elizabeth Garcia, about two weeks ago, and I was very interested in hearing more about what she and her fellow Fellows are doing for those six weeks. She graciously agreed to do an interview with me. Here’s what we talked about:

That’s the sound of the future. I’m looking forward to it.

  1. Thank you for the interview with Elizabeth. Please be sure to let people know that she’s also a charming and adorable house guest. As Don says, “The IQ in this house went up 500% when Elizabeth moved in for the summer.” Elizabeth just finished her first year at Harvard. We are amazed at her humor, energy, and new ideas. We are blessed to be her hosts.
