The 85th Regular Session is now behind us, and while it was challenging, we did make progress in some very important issue areas.
My proudest achievement was creating and passing a bipartisan, comprehensive Child Protective Services (CPS) reform bill, which will improve the court process for CPS cases and ease the burden on children, families and child welfare stakeholders. We also passed criminal justice reforms to make the system more fair, and worked on measures to strengthen our community and address local issues in our county, city and neighborhoods.
But much of the work we did was about standing up for what’s right. Many of you saw me fight for the rights of immigrants on the floor. You saw me fight for the rights of Texas kids. Now, Governor Abbott has called a special session and I need your help to go back to Austin and continue the fight.
I’m starting to ramp up my re-election efforts for next year’s campaign and Friday is our first financial filing deadline. I need your help to reach our fundraising goal. We need to raise $9,300 in the next three days, so please contribute to my campaign today.
Next year’s election will be vital for Texas, and with your support, I will continue to fight for equality and opportunity for all Texans.
Please give today to help me continue this fight for years to come. Thank you so much for your generosity, friendship and support.
