Representative Armando "Mando" Martinez hosted the 4th and 5th Grade Gifted and Talented Class from Gonzalez Elementary in Weslaco on Tuesday, May 3, 2005. Approximately 18 students and 6 adults were included in the group who toured the Texas Capitol, observed the Texas House of Representatives General House Session and enjoyed lunch with Representative Martinez on the scenic Capitol lawn.

"It was a tremendous opportunity for the students to come and learn more about Texas Government and the Texas Capitol," Martinez stated. "It was a pleasure hosting the group and I commend those responsible for providing the opportunity to these students." Representative Martinez had the opportunity to recognize the group from Gonzalez Elementary in front of his fellow Representatives in the House Chamber, while the Texas House of Representatives were in session.
