As recently reported in the San Antonio Express News, Congressman Charlie Gonzalez has announced that he will not seek re-election to the Congressional seat which he has held since 1998.
In what will be the end of a political era, once Congressman Gonzalez steps down this will mark the first time since 1961 that neither he nor his father the late Henry B. Gonzalez has held the seat. While the district has recently been marred with uncertainty stemming from redistricting, a San Antonio Court drew new boundaries which largely will keep his district in tact. As such, Congressman Gonzalez has made clear that redistricting is not the reason that he is stepping down, instead citing a desire to move on in his career.
The DLG Luce family wishes Congressman Gonzalez the best in his future endevours and thanks him and his famliy for all they have contributed politically to San Antonio, Texas, and the entire United States.
