LANSING – State Representative Shane Hernandez (R-Port Huron) was honored last week by the Michigan Alliance of Latinos Moving Towards Advancement as part of their Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations.
Hernandez, a freshman legislator who was named the “most conservative” member of the house for 2017 by MIRS news, stressed that he considers himself an American first:
“My father taught us to consider ourselves Americans first,” said Hernandez. “However, I am very proud of my family heritage.”
Representative Hernandez father, Salvador Hernandez Jr., worked his way up from general laborer to boiler operator at the Croswell pickle factory. He instilled in his children a ferocious worth ethic and deep love of the United States Constitution. Values he still holds sacred.
