Who & Where

Ramon Romero

District Outlook
After a narrow primary win in 2012 over Carlos Vasquez, Representative Burnam faced another challenge from the Hispanic community in Ramon Romero. As presently drawn, the district contains a CVAP- and SSRV-majority Hispanic population. While Burnam is an experienced and aggressive campaigner in increasingly competitive primary elections, none had ever represented a true majority-Hispanic electorate. Ramon Romero has served on the Fort Worth Zoning Commission and Plan Commission, and also narrowly lost a 2012 runoff contest for Forth Worth City Council District 8 to Kelly Gray.
