Election Results!

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!

Congratulations to:

  • 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!
