To the editor:
I am writing to endorse our State Representative Patrick Rose for re-election in the Democratic primary. We have a leader in Austin who understands and represents the pressing needs of our district and our community. With thousands of manufacturing jobs leaving Texas each year, Representative Rose created the Texas Manufacturers Caucus, bringing legislators and the business community together to protect and create jobs here in Texas. In addition, Texans have far too many children without insurance. As Chair of the Human Services Committee, Representative Rose expanded the SCHIP program to include an additional 150,000 children of low-income parents. In today’s tough economy, we need to keep Representative Rose fighting for future generations so they have the tools to build a more secure economic future. Representative Patrick Rose has a record of results that matter. Please Vote for Patrick Rose in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, March 2.
