Overview

"Remarkable Journey" explores the life and times of Solomon Ortiz, a distinguished veteran of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1983-2011. This explores his early life, his military service, his heroic law enforcement work, and his 28 years of public service in the United States House of Representatives.
In Congress, Ortiz was a leading player on the national stage on issues that had great impact on U.S. history in the early 21st Century (military readiness, border security, the 9-11 aftermath, health care and economic development).
Ortiz' longevity of service includes a deep involvement with Texas redistricting, provides context for the evolution of political tenor in the U.S., and offers commentary on the state of politics today and tomorrow.
