Candidate Talks About Muleshoe Roots
Thursday, April 10, 2014
State Sen., and Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis spoke of her memories of Muleshoe during her speech Friday at the Panhandle Press Association’s annual convention, held at Dumas.

Davis, the granddaughter of Nealy and Lela Stovall of Muleshoe, spoke of her summers in Muleshoe… memories she said became even more important to her after the divorce of her parents, including when her uncle — Jack Stovall, who worked at the local Piggly Wiggly supermarket, taught her at age 12 to drive on FM 54 between Littlefield and Muleshoe.

But while she spoke fondly of her childhood memories, Davis also addressed what she believes to be key needs in the State of Texas, including improvements in economics and educations.
