About Us

Welcome to the Texas Monitor.

This is a progressive blog with a youth perspective on Texas politics, from the campus to the Capitol and everything in between.

Our aim is to provide a forum for young and young-at-heart progressives to share their commentary and insight. We intend to do this with our friends, Garamond and Futura.

The Texas Monitor was launched in late summer of 2012 by The University of Texas students Huey Rey Fischer, John Lawler, Alejandro Barrientos, and Andre Treiber.
