PHARR, September 11 – Asked why she is running for Texas House District 36, Maria Regalado’s answer is simple: “Because I am a woman with compassion.”

Regalado is vice chair of Hidalgo County Democratic Women. She lives in Pharr and is co-owner of Four Aces Bail Bonds in Edinburg with her husband Fred. They have three children, Jessica, Rosa Alicia, and Alfredo, otherwise known as Freddie III.

“I am running for state representative because I am a woman,” Regalado told the Guardian. “Generally speaking, women have a lot of compassion. I am not saying men do not have compassion but as women, we are multi-taskers. We love men. My father was a man, my husband is a man and I love him because he gave me three children. My son, I love him to no end. I do not want to speak ill about any man but it is time for us women.”

Regalado says the ideal would be for the Texas House of Representatives to be comprised of 50 percent men and 50 percent women. The same for Congress. “If we join together, we can be the greatest nation. We can be the greatest county in the state of Texas.”

The primary election is next March.  [read full article here]
