The lege remembers Moreno

By Gilbert Garcia

Yesterday was a fairly slow day for the state legislature, but they did take time to recognize the February 2 passing of retired San Antonio firefighter Tomas (T.T.) Moreno, at the age of 59. As SAFD Legislative Director/PAC Chairman, Moreno was a fixture at the Capitol over the years, and grew especially close to Senator Mario Gallegos, Jr. (D-Houston), a fellow former firefighter, who spoke on the Senate floor about Moreno's years of service.

In Moreno's honor, the lege adjourned for the week shortly after 12 noon. At the end of the afternoon, Senator Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) was making calls on behalf of Moreno's family to his ex-colleagues, to make certain that he received a proper firefighter's burial. Several legislators are expected at his funeral.
