She comments on the 'Robin Hood Plan' of school finance in Texas and mentions prominent Mexican American politicians Henry Cisneros, Fort Worth City Councilman Louis Zapata, Texas State Representative Robert Alianzo [sic, Alonzo], Texas State Senator Elisa [sic, Leticia] Van de Putte, fellow FWISD board member Jesse Martínez, and José Angel Gutiérrez.
