Today is the first day of early voting.
It goes without saying that this is a critical election and beginning today, voters will cast their ballots to pick party nominees from the courthouse to the White House. I urge you to be a part of this historic election and to vote in the Democratic Primary. When doing so, I hope you will consider voting for the candidates I have endorsed, including:
- Hillary Clinton for President – Last week, I emailed you and laid out the reasons why I think she is the proven leader who is unmatched in dealing with the challenges the next president will face.
- Marc Veasey for U.S. Representative, District 33 – Marc is a friend and former colleague in the Texas House. He is a hard-working congressman for Tarrant and Dallas Counties and is fighting for our priorities in Washington: good-paying jobs, comprehensive immigration reform and expanded health care and educational opportunities for all Americans.
- Lon Burnam for Texas Railroad Commission – Another friend and former colleague, Lon Burnam, is running for a seat on the Railroad Commission. This is the agency focused on our state’s oil and gas industry, dealing with safety, production and the environment. Lon has long been a leader on these issues and will do a great job as Railroad Commissioner.
But no matter who you vote for, the most important thing is that you get out and vote. Early voting runs through Friday, February 26. For Tarrant County early voting times and locations, click here.
