Thirty years ago today Ann Richards, who was our state treasurer at the time, gave the keynote address to the Democratic National Convention delegates gathered in Atlanta.
Two years later, she would become the second female governor of Texas.
She is still dearly missed by all of us who loved having her in the Governor’s Mansion and in Texas Democratic Party circles.
It would be interesting to see what Governor Ann would say about the current occupant of the White House if she were still with us.
But enjoy this respite from the Trump madness and check out this video of her 1988 keynote speech.
