“See, my pedigree most definitely don’t tolerate the front/ Stuff I’ve been through probably offend you/ This is Paula’s oldest son.” — Kendrick Lamar
Next month, voters will be flocking to the polls to vote in the primaries. This month, I was introduced to Colin Allred, a Berkeley Law alumnus and former Tennessee Titans football player who is currently pounding the pavement and running to represent Texas’s 32nd District.
Allred is a millennial attorney with a tremendous amount of legal experience. He has served as a research assistant for professor and author Ian Haney Lopez, in the Office of White House Counsel under Kathy Ruemmler, in a law clerk externship for the Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office, as an associate at Perkins Coie LLP, and as an Obama appointee in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
