Austin, TX, Jan. 15, 2020 — Today, Jolt Action proudly endorses Jeffrey Whitfield to represent Texas House District 92.
Whitfield is running because he wants to reclaim Texas for all and believes his community needs a leader that won’t accept mediocrity in place of excellence. He believes that what’s good for Texas is good for the economy, that the fact that Texas has the largest uninsured population needs to be addressed, and that education is key to transforming communities.
The following statement is from Antonio Arellano, Interim Executive Director of Jolt Action:
“Jolt Action is honored to endorse Jeff Whitfield in the race for Texas House District 92. Jeff has proven through his work and advocacy surrounding voting rights that he is dedicated to fighting for the vulnerable, especially when their democratic freedoms are under attack.
“We must stand up and help him go to the Texas House to fight for the policies that represent the best interests of all Texans.”
Whitfield, an Air Force veteran, was recently honored by the United Hispanic Council of Tarrant County for his advocacy for voting rights and democratic freedoms of Latinos. He wants to ensure everyone is allowed to vote by expanding opportunities to vote.
