Joe Farias Endorsed By TSTA

Just in case you missed it below, HD-118 Democratic candidate Joe Farias has been endorsed by the Texas State Teacher's Assocation:

On Wednesday, February 8, 2006, Farias officially received the endorsement of TSTA further strengthening his candidacy for the 118 spot. Michelle Hickman, the President of the Harlandale Education Association and TSTA member speaks on the reasoning behind the coveted endorsement, "Mr. Farias' experience and commitment serving our community and proven voting record for the children and educators as a School Board Trustee enables him to be the best, most qualified candidate in this critical race."

Even more so now that Perry has decided to call the upcoming special session to only deal with the task that the state Supreme Court has given him, educators turned candidates are going to have a decided edge in the upcoming November election.
