An Eclectic Conversation with Texas State Representative Diego Bernal
Bio- DIego Bernal is a Democratic Texas State Representative. Bernal was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in February 2015. He represents District 123, home to downtown and north central San Antonio, parts of the city's West Side, along with the City of Castle Hills. Diego is dedicated to the principles of equality and justice. I'm going to be really honest. I really like this guy. My greats friend Jaime Ramirez worked the homie back channels and was able to convince Diego to come the show, all the while telling me "you guys are gonna really get along." He was right. We talked about the Hip Hop, Education, Basketball and he takes a few questions from our Instagram followers. This is such a great way to launch the new season of the show and I was so honored that he took the time.
