A Valley native, Morgan LaMantia is part of the next generation of leadership in the family business that supports over 1,200 jobs across Texas and beyond. Morgan heads up data analytics and serves as In-House Counsel, carrying on the legacy of her grandfather, Joe LaMantia, of building opportunities through hard work and giving back to the community.
Morgan's South Texas upbringing and real-life work experience reinforced her belief that strong families and good business go hand in hand. That's why Morgan started a health care initiative to give their employees free access to a doctor and health education to manage chronic diseases like diabetes. And when PPE supplies were scarce in the early stages of the pandemic, Morgan worked the supply chain to ensure all employees had the safety equipment they needed to keep themselves and their families safe.
Today, Morgan LaMantia is stepping up to provide the next generation of leadership for South Texas in the State Senate. Not your typical politician — she believes in getting things done. And she walks the walk as an active community volunteer, from supporting the STARS scholarship programs where 100% of the funds go to local students to serving on the Board of Directors of non-profits, including the Gladys Porter Zoo.
Morgan is proudly standing up for South Texas because we are the workforce of Texas' future. We're leaders in space exploration, renewable energy, international trade, not to mention the produce capital that feeds the nation. Her priorities include expanding access to affordable health care, standing by our teachers and public schools, and supporting small businesses, because Morgan knows when we stand by South Texas families, there's nothing we can't do.
Morgan earned her business degree from the University of Texas at Austin and is a graduate of St. Mary's University School of Law.
