Xochil Peña Rodriguez is seeking election to the Texas Senate. She is running to serve as our next State Senator, because our voice is not being heard in Austin. The votes that have been taken by the incumbent do not reflect the values of Senate District 19. Her election means that we will have the 13th vote essential for blocking the Republican legislative agenda. Together we can flip this senate seat blue.

Professionally, Xochil has been a practicing attorney for over 10 years. She served as Associate Counsel for The University of Texas at San Antonio and as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of San Antonio, and is a certified mediator. Currently, Xochil serves on the San Antonio/Bexar County Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census.

Xochil earned her Juris Doctorate from The University of Texas School of Law. As a Student Attorney, she participated in the Immigration Clinic handling asylum and adjustment of status claims before the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration Court. She also participated in the Transnational Worker’s Rights Clinic (Equal Justice Center), where she represented workers seeking to recover damages for violations of labor laws as well as unpaid wages. Xochil was an intern with The United States Department of Justice, the Texas Senate, and a U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Texas. After law school Xochil served briefly as a Law Fellow for the National Labor Relations Board.

Xochil earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Architectural Studies from Rice University. Xochil is a graduate of Antonian High School where she was a National Hispanic Merit Scholar, and upon graduation, was a LULAC Scholarship recipient.

Xochil married Mr. Shannon O’Dowd, a public school teacher, at San Fernando Cathedral in downtown San Antonio. They have one daughter, Itzela. They live on the southside of San Antonio. Xochil’s parents are Ciro and Carolina Peña Rodriguez. Her father is a former State Representative and Congressman.
