“This district has developed a lot, and I’m extremely happy about it, mainly because it has enabled many more students to have the chance to receive a decent education.” I’d say it’s challenging but worth it.
In December 2015, Gomez chose to return to her Texan roots and acquired a property in Fort Worth, not far from her childhood home in Grand Prairie.
