Meet Yuripzy Morgan for Congress, MD-3
Yuripzy Morgan’s interest in government began with her family. Her mother fled the civil war in El Salvador, and her father is from Mexico. She was born and raised in East Texas several years after they met. They did not have much, but they did have a strong belief that anything was possible in America. It was a belief that her parents instilled in her and her four siblings.
Yuripzy attended the University of Texas at Arlington where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Biology, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. She later moved to Maryland and graduated from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. She practiced law in the Baltimore region before joining WBAL Newsradio, where she hosted her own daily political talk radio show for several years.
She became increasingly aware, through law and radio of how frustrated people were with government. Most people simply wanted their government to work for them, and needed an advocate. While on the radio, she continued to focus on informing the public of how government is supposed to work, and her personal interest in constitutional law.
Yuripzy married her husband in 2013. He served as a Captain in the US Army infantry, leading soldiers in combat operations for a year and a half in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. His experience further influenced her interest in national security and protecting our military and veterans. They were blessed with two little girls, Elena and Chloe, who keep their parent’s schedules busy and their hearts full.
Yuripzy knows that the opportunities in America are endless but they can be stifled by politics and bureaucracy. She grew up in a generation that still believed in the American Dream. Today, there are too many career politicians more interested in collecting a paycheck than making that dream a reality for all Americans. Yuripzy still believes in America, and she is determined to remind those in Washington that America is worth fighting for.
