Ann Johnson, the Democratic candidate for Texas House – District 134, is getting solid support from the pro-choice community on Tuesday evening. The Women for Ann Johnson event is being hosted by a long-list of supporters of a woman’s right to choose, including CM Ellen Cohen, former State Rep. Sissy Farenthold, former Commissioner Sylvia Garcia and many more.
Ann Johnson is challenging incumbent Sarah Davis who has recently attempted to re-brand herself as a moderate after building what many call an extremist record during her freshman term in the Texas House. A Facebook page called The Truth About Sarah Davis has been providing details of that voting record, including votes to de-fund Planned Parenthood and family planning programs and a vote to cut $5.4 billion from public schools.
Davis’ dismal record includes voting to cut Medicaid to the point where residents at local nursing homes would have been evicted. Frankly, that’s something that would affect my mom and many other moms and grandmas. It is obvious that Davis should be replaced by voters.
Ann Johnson is an accomplished attorney, adjunct professor of law, and a former prosecutor with the best interests of Texans in mind. Ann is running on forward-thinking ideas–education, access to health care, and economic opportunities–which would serve as a foundation to a sustainable future. She deserves the support of HD-134, and Tuesday’s event is one way to help her campaign.
The race in HD-134 is a district targeted by Democrats for re-taking, along with HD-144, which is being sought by Mary Ann Perez. Whether you reside in these districts or not, these candidates need your support.
