Gilbert Pena was born in Galveston, TX in 1949 and moved to Houston when he was nine years old. Because, of Gilbert’s meager upbringing, he is a lifelong hard worker and has fought the odds time after time until he successfully got his GED and then graduated from Texas Southern University with a Bachelor degree in Political Science in 1996.
In many ways, Gilbert is just like the many residents of House District 144; he has gotten up at two-thirty or three in the morning to throw a paper route and then to a regular job to work eight or ten hours when over time was allow and then to clean offices until nine thirty or ten at night. So, Gilbert knows what hard work is.
Gilbert and his wife Cynthia have lived in Pasadena since 1992; they have four children and six grandchildren. Gilbert is now retired and believes our nation needs to return to the roots of our U.S. Constitution and Texas Constitution which were adopted by our Judeo Christian Faith. It is with his strong faith in GOD that Gilbert wants to be your voice on issues that matter the most.
Many Pasadena residents have seen Gilbert walking his special needs son, Mark at a Wal-Mart or a grocery store, at the Mall or around the neighborhood. Residents have also talked to Gilbert about the things that are important to the families of District 144. We have to talk about the importance of Education; Job training; Immigration; Taxes; Business Opportunities and Limited Government.Gilbert Pena in Meeting
But, Gilbert is Pro-Christian and believes that every Christian must follow the morals and values that favor a Marriage between a Man and Woman only, that as Christians we must have a respect for Life from conception to the grave. Gilbert further believes that as Christians, we must stand up against those who want to undermine our Christian morals and values upon which this nation was founded and that we cannot have Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness without our Christian Faith.
