Building Coalitions to Grow the Blue Horizon

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

Structural, system-wide change begins with coordinated efforts among all parts of the Democratic coalition. Blue Horizon Texas has assembled a Board of Directors and Advisory Board to lead and advise our efforts. They are current and former elected officials and candidates, campaign staffers, community organizers, and leaders of county parties and affiliated groups.

Board of Directors The members of the Board of Directors of Blue Horizon Texas are all former candidates who have run for federal, state, and local office across the state—from U.S. Congress and State Supreme Court to State Legislature, County Commissioner, and Justice of the Peace:

  • Coda Rayo-Garza, President

  • Kathy Cheng, Secretary

  • Spencer Bounds

  • Jennifer Cantu

  • Samantha Fields

  • FJ Jones

  • Audrey Spanko

  • Mary Wilson

Our Board members reflect the diverse communities and constituencies they sought to represent, and they remain active in serving their communities and growing the blue horizon in Texas. They understand the needs of candidates, and they know how to build coalitions within their communities.

Advisory Board
