STATEMENT ON REP. CARDOZA’S ANNOUNCEMENT TO RETIRE
Washington D.C.: Chairman Charles A. Gonzalez (TX 20) released this statement today after Congressman Dennis Cardoza announced his plans not to seek reelection in 2012:
“Congressman Cardoza has been an outstanding public servant for the Central Valley of California and the Hispanic community and has shown that he is a steadfast leader for rural communities. He has been one of the most passionate advocates for realistic solutions to the housing crisis, which has severely affected Latinos. His five terms in Congress mark just the latest chapter in a lifelong devotion to public service and I wish him the best of luck in his next pursuits. His leadership and friendship will be greatly missed in Washington."
