Today is the first day of early voting for the March 6th primary election.
I think we can expect this year’s election – both the primary and the November general election — to be historic. People are fed up with Donald Trump and politicians like Ted Cruz and Konni Burton, who put extreme Tea Party interests above neighborhood schools, the economy and our healthcare.
It’s time to send a strong message that we need change from the top down, which is why I urge you to be a part of this historic election by voting in the Democratic Primary. There are many important contests in this year’s primary and I hope you will consider voting for the following candidates I have endorsed:
Beto O’Rourke for U.S. Senate – Beto is mounting a strong challenge against the extreme Ted Cruz. Beto’s grassroots campaign is inspiring a lot of people across our state and as our Senator, he will put Texas first, for a change.
Marc Veasey for U.S. Representative, District 33 – We have one of the best congressmen around, and we need to keep him! Marc is a hard-working leader for Tarrant and Dallas Counties and is fighting for us and against the Trump agenda every day in Washington.
Beverly Powell for State Senate, District 10 – I’ve known Beverly for more than a decade and know she will put people ahead of politics. With her service on the Burleson ISD School Board and years of involvement in our community, Beverly has what it takes to beat Konni Burton in November. When elected, she will be a strong advocate for Tarrant County, something we have been missing in Senate District 10 for the last few years.
Devan Allen for Tarrant County Commissioner, Precinct 2 – I was fortunate to work with Devan when she served as my District Director and know firsthand her commitment and passion for serving others. When elected, she will be a needed addition to the Tarrant County Commissioner’s Court and a strong voice for Precinct 2. In addition, I know Devan will be an effective ally on key House District 101 priorities, including health care and transportation.
If you live in Arlington, Grand Prairie, Mansfield or Kennedale and would like to learn more about Devan, Lisa and I are hosting a meet-and-greet event at our home in Grand Prairie onSaturday, February 24 from 2 to 4:00 pm. For more details or to RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Early voting runs through Friday, March 2nd. For Tarrant County early voting times and locations, click here.
2018’s going to be a good year – be part of it by exercising your right to vote!
