Hubert Vo

Hubert Vo ( Võ in Vietnamese) (born 30 May 1956) is a member of the Texas House of Representatives from District 149. He is the first and only Vietnamese American to be elected to the Texas legislature.

Vo was born in South Vietnam and emigrated to the United States with his family to leave the communist government of Vietnam.

Vo currently serves as a Democratic member of the Texas House of Representatives, representing the 149th District which contains part of Harris County including part of west Houston and the suburbs of Alief and Katy. Vo was elected in 2004, defeating the incumbent Republican, Talmadge Heflin by the razor-thin margin of 20,695 to 20,662. [http://elections.sos.state.tx.us/elchist.exe]

Talmadge Heflin was the Republican nominee again in 2006, seeking a rematch with Hubert Vo in the election of Tuesday, November 7, 2006. Vo won re-election with 54% of the vote.

The Houston Chronicle has reported numerous stories about apartment complexes owned by Vo. The complexes have been cited by the City of Houston for various building code violations. [http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headline/metro/5695114.html]
