Public Policy Briefing - August 23
Lunch with U.S. Congressman Colin Allred
(Texas 32nd District)
Colin Allred was born and raised in North Dallas, he went to Hillcrest High school, earning a football scholarship to Baylor University, and later earned his law degree from Berkeley. Colin served in the General Counsel’s office at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He then returned home to Dallas and decided to run for office. As a Representative, Colin’s top priorities in Congress are working to lower costs of health care, protect Medicare and Social Security, and to create an economy that works for everyone while expanding access to vocational schools and lowering the cost of college. He believes Congress must find common ground to rebuild aging infrastructure, pass immigration reform and veteran care.
