Angclus Funeral Home. A Record of Honest Service And Impressive Achievement for The People.... AI ways Fancy rhetoric or high priced advertising can sometimes achieve the image of high quality and substance for a commercial product. But in politics, only hard, dedicated and sincere work should succeed in giving a candidate this image. State Representative CARLOS TRUAN has not had the money to conduct the kind of high priced newspaper and electronic media campaign that the incumbent Senator and the inexperienced so-called "non-politician listener" have waged in this race. But then, CARLOS TRUAN has the invaluable asset that neither of them has an impressive and substantive record of eight years of honest service and achievement. SUBSTANCE, if you will, is what separates CARLOS TRUAN from the other candidates. Consider the quality and substance of some of those legislative measures and areas of concecn that CARLOS TRUAN has sponsored and actively supported during his eight years as your Representative in the House of Representatives: . 1. A strong Public Utility Regulatory Act to check the ever rising cost of our public utility services. 2. The Texas Adult Education Act to provide a basic education of high school equivalency for an estimated 4.9 million adult Texans. 3. The Texas Bilingual Education Act to help linguistically different children progress in school at the same rate as English speaking children. 4. The Greater South Texas Cultural Basin Commission created to focus upon the particular problems of South Texas to establish permanent solutions for its economic and social problems. 5. The Texas Child Care Licensing Act to provide for more adequate child care facilities by both public and private institutions. 6. The Act exempting the homestead residence of persons 65 years of age or older from property taxes under certain circumstances. In a word, PEOPLE is what CARLOS TRUAN is all about. CARLOS TRUAN hasn't solved all of the problems or satisfied all of the needs of South Texas, but in trying to do his best in his efforts he hasn't been one of its problems, either. All you can expect from CARLOS TRUAN as your next STATE SENATOR is his continued dedication to be a hard working, sincere and honest representative. All you can expect from CARLOS TRUAN as your next STATE SENATOR is that he will continue to fight the good fight for the people...
