Growing up in Houston, Nick is the product of HISD schools. Nick got his first taste of public service while working at Houston City Hall for former District I City Council Member James Rodriguez. It was at City Hall where he found mentorship and inspiration from dedicated leaders like Anne Clutterbuck, Sue Lovell and Mayor Annise Parker.

Then we speak with Louis Minor. Born and raised in Belton, Texas, to a large Mexican American family, Louie has fond memories of childhood. Every occasion was a reason to cook and celebrate. The Army took Louie around the country and the world. Like many Killeen residents, Louie found opportunities in Killeen that made this community the perfect place to establish roots. Louie is honored to be the first Latino on the Commissioners Court and the first openly- gay elected official in the county. Louie looks forward to serving Bell County as Bell County Commissioner Precinct 4.
