Congratulations to Representative-Elect Mary González! Mary won her Democratic Primary without a runoff and has no general election opponent in HD-75. Thanks to New Leaders across the state who helped triple our May 10 fundraising reception goal and those that made calls to El Paso voters. Mary is grateful and proud to be the first New Leader elected to the Texas House.
We look now to our other endorsed candidate, Ann Johnson, for Houston’s HD-134 and her general election in November. Please continue to support New Leaders Texas. Working together, we will change the face of Texas leadership.
Here is his message to New Leaders:
"When given the chance to send a fresh, vibrant and intelligent voice to the Texas House we can’t let that moment pass. That’s why I have enthusiastically endorsed Mary González and donated to her campaign. The passion and intellect that she has demonstrated in her advocacy and in her academic career is just a glimpse of what she’ll put on display in the Legislature. In making the Texas House better she will also make El Paso and all of Texas better.
With a win in the May 29th Democratic primary, Mary will be one step closer to becoming a legislator who will make a significant difference in our state for years to come. Please join me in making this happen by supporting Mary González.”
