“It is for the classroom, the workplace, as well as in housing. Students have been held from graduation, they have been kept from the prom, they have been pulled off of basketball courts,” said Bowers.
“In order for us to do this, to get Texas on the right track, we have to make sure that we’re listening to and serving all of those among us, including the most vulnerable,” she said. “We’ve got to make sure that everyone can vote.”
I have gotten to know you, and you have gotten to know me. We have shopped at the same grocery stores, eaten together at local restaurants, supported our school teams and marching bands under the Friday night lights, attended PTA meetings, and watched as our community and families grew together. I am someone who understands the needs of our community and can be counted on to serve you.
