We’re very excited about Celia’s candidacy. She has the right experience to be an effective voice in the state legislature from day one, and she has the community roots to win this race.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
The newly formed Texas Association of Consumer Lawyers PAC (TACL PAC) has made its first state entrance into legislative politics by endorsing Celia Israel in the race for Texas House District 50.
The PAC's mission is to influence Texas public policy by working to elect candidates that support civil justice and fair access to the judicial system. Israel has a long and established track record in business and public service, having served as a board member of the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and as a former president of the YMCA. Israel is TACL’s first ever political endorsement.
“We’re very excited about Celia’s candidacy,” said Houston attorney Steve Mostyn. “She has the right experience to be an effective voice in the state legislature from day one, and she has the community roots to win this race."
The seat for Texas House District 50 has been vacant since July. A special election held on November 5th resulted in Israel advancing to a December run-off election. The district covers north Austin and parts of eastern Travis County and is considered Democratic-leaning. Israel was the leading Democrat in the race and received 32 percent of the vote.
“Celia Israel is an outstanding candidate who will always put doing what is right for her constituents and the state of Texas above narrow political agendas,” Mostyn continued. "That is why TACL PAC is proud to support her campaign."
Israel has focused her campaign on supporting higher education and protecting the environment. She is also a fierce defender of women's access to health care.
The run off for Texas House district 50 will be December 10th. Voters are encouraged to head to the polls as turn out for the November election was lower than expected.
