This is a press release from Sen. Judith Zaffirini with her statements on the death of Sen. Carlos Truan's death.
"Figures don't lie, but liars figure." Sen. Carlos Truan, D-Corpus Christi, uttered those words countless times as he fought for increased funding not only for his constituents' needs and priorities, but also for education and health and human services programs, especially for low-income families. Many Texans, including those who never knew him, benefited from his leadership and passion.
"Sen. Truan made history as the first Hispanic to serve as Dean of the Texas Senate. More important, his accomplishments, especially in enhancing access to higher education in South Texas, made a historical difference for South Texas.
"All of us who were privileged to serve with him in the Texas Legislature are saddened by his loss and will remember him fondly as a friend and colleague."
