PHIL VELA FOR CONGRESS??? Just got wind of news that yes, phil vela, is considering running for the newly redistricted congressional seat 27 – runs from this area to Brownsville. Phil is 13th court of appeals judge rose vela’s husband. His late, beloved father was a federal judge in the valley: his mom, was mayor of Brownsville… he once played a leadership on this area – first as a democrat, then as a republican. He help placed many in judicial posts – he helped open a flood gate of political opportunities for republicans here in the region. Has the whole expectional agende being messed up???
