Texas AFT’s Committee on Political Education endorsed another round of great pro-public education champions this week. Educators have the chance to elect new leaders from the state house to the state senate to Congress this year. For the Texas House, we support Sarah Demarchant and Natali Hurtado, two women of color that will bring a fresh new perspective to the Legislature.
For Senate District 19, we endorse Rep. Roland Gutierrez, a battle-tested legislator that will fight for public education over school privatization. For Congress, Texas AFT supports a diverse group of new candidates from across the state: Hank Gilbert (CD-1) in East Texas, Sima Ladjevardian (CD-2) and Mike Siegal (CD-10) from Central Texas, Lulu Seikaly (CD-3), Stephen Daniel (CD-6), and Candace Valenzuela (CD-24) in North Texas.
