Pho Hoa in Houston hosted celebration reception for Texas’ recently elected
State Representatives Mr. Hubert Vo
Just before the Grand Opening on Thursday 12/16-04,
our new Pho Hoa store in Houston, Texas hosted a big
celebration reception for one of Texas’ recently elected
State Representatives Mr. Hubert Vo.
Over 160 people joined us at the reception.
After almost three decades, Vietnamese Americans have made
great strides in the land of opportunity. Accomplishments
have been recognized in many areas including academic,
business, science, sport, and entertainment. However,
mainstream politics is a major area that has enjoyed increasing
participation by Vietnamese Americans.
The number of Vietnamese Americans running for public offices
reached an unprecedented height during the last election.
As the result, the first two Vietnamese Americans were elected
into the state legislatures in California and Texas. One of
them is our own Hubert Vo representing District 149 of Texas.
By being a co-sponsor of this event, Pho Hoa Restaurant wants to honor
