Alvarado scores endorsements

The following press release from State Rep. Ana Hernandez is significant for the candidacy of Carol Alvarado.

Former Houston City Council Member and candidate for State Representative in Texas House District 145, Carol Alvarado has received significant endorsements from progressive leaders of the Texas House of Representatives, including Representatives Ellen Cohen, Garnet Coleman, Jessica Farrar, Ana Hernandez, Borris Miles, Richard Raymond and Hubert Vo. Alvarado's commitment to the Democratic Party and its principles has not gone unnoticed as these Democratic legislators have pledged their support to her candidacy. During her six years as a council member, Alvarado marched for immigrant rights, fought for tougher toxic emission standards and helped pass a city wide smoking ban. She has served her city council district well and is now ready to continue the fight at the Texas House of Representatives.

These Democratic State Representatives embody the spirit of the Democratic Party as they each have a proven record of fighting for the rights of their constituents and against the current Republican leadership in the Texas House of Representatives. They look forward to Alvarado joining them in the fight to regain the Texas House majority.

This should not just kill the idea that there's any "squishiness" about Alvarado's bona fides, it should drive a stake through its heart, cut its head off, and burn the carcass. With that crew standing behind her, there's no reason for anyone to hesitate. I support Carol Alvarado (whom I interviewed here), and if you live in HD145, I hope you will as well.

Rep. Farrar's name is noticeably missing from Carol's endorsement list on her website. I'm sure it's an oversight that will be corrected soon.
