Lori's career outside the home was spent working for the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. She had the pleasure of working for five Comptrollers: Bob Bullock, John Sharp, Carole Keeton, Susan Combs and Glenn Hager. During her 32 years with the Comptroller's office, she spent time working with Sales Tax, Training and Development, Tax Policy and finally as the agency's Customer Service Liaison and Ombudsman. While working full time for the state, she was elected to the Board of the Austin Independent School District representing District 6, a single member district serving a very ethnically and economically diverse population. She served two terms totaling 8 1/2 years. While on the Board she was elected Board Secretary and represented the AISD Board as a Director on the Board of the Texas Association of School Boards for six years. Upon her retirement from state service after 32 years, she moved to Buda and immediately became immersed in the local single member district charter amendment election. Where she continues to be actively engaged in increasing voter registration, voter education, and voter participation.
On a personal note, Lori was raised in a very politically aware and service-oriented family. Her father, Richard Moya, was the first Hispanic elected to public office in Travis County in 1970. He taught her the value of public service and the responsibility to represent and look out for those who have less or need a helping hand. Lori's commitment to the community is ever present in everything she does. She has two children, Jeff Delgado and Teresa Delgado Lutha. Her son works in the wine industry and her daughter is a high school teacher and athletic trainer. She has two grandsons, Nathan (17) and Luke (8).
