The session is wrapping up and because of record turnout and Democratic gains, Texans are seeing better bills and better-behaved lawmakers*.
For our annual May social (no May meeting), let’s celebrate Sine Die (the end of the 86th Legislative Session) together and watch “Running With Beto,” winner of the 2019 SxSW audience award.
“Running With Beto” follows Beto O’Rourke behind the scenes of his breakaway campaign to unseat Ted Cruz in the United States Senate. With intimate access to the candidate, his family and team, this independent documentary captures Beto’s rise from a virtual unknown to a national political sensation.
This week, Democrats and Republicans came together in the Texas House to pass House Bill 3, funding full day pre-K, teacher and campus staff pay raises, investing in students, not test scores, reducing recapture, and lowering school property taxes.
Only one lawmaker voted against this massive reform bill. HD 92 has no voice for progress on public school finance/education/taxation with Rep. Stickland in office. Send him packing.
Stickland is funded by West Texas dark money. He’s beaten every Republican challenger because the hard right turns out in primaries. The only way to win is by electing a Democrat to serve HD 92. We’ve helped elect smart, qualified, and fair Democrats who care about our community, the environment, education, healthcare AND you.
