Texas House, District 52: Diana Maldonado

Attempts by the Williamson County GOP to paint Round Rock Independent School District trustee Maldonado as a single-issue education candidate seem galling when compared to Republican Bryan Daniel’s close connection to the agriculture political action committees. An establishment Republican whose generic policy platform would restrict spending when even some of the more fiscally conservative House members are worried about the state’s bare-bones budget, Daniel seems a backward step for a changing district. Maldonado, who arguably has far better links to the Central Texas business community than Daniel, will also bring an often-missed voice for Hispanic-owned and female-owned businesses and coalitions, and her hands-on understanding of the legislative and budget traumas facing school districts can be an essential addition to the next session.

It’s time to move forward with Maldonado. Click on the link above to read their full list of endorsements.
