Ann Richards (Birthday)
Join us in celebrating the birthday of Ann Richards. In 1976, Ann became the 1st woman elected to the Travis County Commissioners Court. In 1982, Ann became the 1st woman elected as Texas State Treasurer, which was the 1st time a woman had been elected to statewide office in Texas since Miriam Ferguson's successful gubernatorial race in 1932--breaking a 50-yr absence of women in statewide leadership. In 1990, Ann became the 2nd woman to serve as governor of Texas since Texas became a state in 1845.
