More about Rep Gutierrez from his official website bio:

Elected to the Texas House of Representatives in a special election in May 2008, Representative Gutierrez represents District 119, which encompasses part of Bexar County. Roland Gutierrez embodies the best traditions of Texas public service and the best hopes for the future of Texas leadership.

A native of San Antonio, Gutierrez is a 1989 graduate of Central Catholic High School. He earned his BA in political science from the University of Texas at San Antonio and earned his law degree from St. Mary's University School of Law. He is the sole proprietor of his own law firm and is involved in the Elder Law Clinic, which provides free legal services to senior citizens. Representative Gutierrez, his wife Sarah, and their daughter Izabella live in the San Jose neighborhood, where they attend Mission San Jose and are active in a variety of community projects.

Gutierrez was elected to the San Antonio City Council in 2005 and re-elected two years later. He was a driving force behind the effort to establish Texas A&M University, the city's second top-tier public university, and helped secure federal resources to fund the San Antonio River project without increasing the tax burden on middle-class families and small businesses. He was also praised for his work on the team that landed the Toyota auto manufacturing plant, leading to thousands of new jobs and millions in new economic activity for the city.
