Senator Garcia Statement on the Passing of Commissioner El Franco Lee

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Commissioner El Franco Lee, this morning. I was honored to call him a friend and colleague. He was a dedicated and committed public servant whose advocacy for the poor and our most vulnerable populations was unwavering. El Franco always focused on helping others. He never forgot where he came from and used his position and power to ensure doors were open for all kids. A firm believer in the American Dream, El Franco worked tirelessly to help others achieve their dreams. He will be missed.

State Senator Sylvia R. Garcia represents Senate District 6 in Harris County.
