Happy & Sad Notes

Here's some quick notes from the political scene that I haven't gotten around to talking about because of campaign stuff but are really important for El Paso.

The Black El Paso Democrats made a little history recently and elected the first woman president of organization.

Sissy Byrd took over the reigns as president recently. Congratulations to her and the Black El Paso Democrats.

Twymeni Purchase RIP

The El Paso Democratic Party lost one of our own recently. Twymeni Purchase passed suddenly this week. She was an active member of the Party.

I first met her and her husband during the Obama-Hillary War of 2008. Very nice and religiously faithful people. Her passing is not only a big loss to the black community in El Paso but also to the religious community and the El Paso Democratic Party.

My thoughts and prayers are with her husband Steven and the rest of their family.
