Yesterday was a step in the right direction! Of the 70 candidates March On! identified, we had 11 wins and 9 of those were women!
- Gloria Carrillo – Grand Prarie
- Sammy Casados – Pasadena
- Anne Duffy – Cedar Park
- Shirley Fleming – Killeen
- Mike Floyd – Pearland
- Shirley Gonzales – San Antonio
- Heather Jefts – Cendar Park
- Esmeralda Lozano – La Feria
- Nakisha Paul – Texas City
- Candace Valenzuela – Carrollton/Farmers branch
- Tammy Young – Round Rocks
We have 12 in a runoff and of those, 8 are women! This does not include the San Antonio Mayoral election where there will be a runoff between Ivy and Nirenberg. Nor does it include the College of the Mainland where there is a runoff between 2 identified progressive candidates, both women.
Here is a link to the spreadsheet with all the May 2017 election results.
Much work ahead, including pitching in on the runoffs, but this is a great first step.
Marching On to a blue Texas!
