With two decades of experience in the Texas Legislature Leticia Van de Putte has built a strong record of working with both Democrats and Republicans to get results. She understands that Texas will only succeed if its working families are able to succeed.
Dan Patrick’s campaign has been hyper-partisan as he continually places the extreme platforms of his party above the true needs of Texas families. He once referred to the influx of undocumented immigrants as an “illegal invasion” and has been quoted saying that undocumented immigrants bring “third-world diseases” like leprosy and tuberculosis into the U.S.
UFCW supports Carol Donovan because she fights for worker safety and pay equity. Donovan has years of experience in mediation and will be a strong voice for North Texas working families.
Susan Motley supports raising the minimum wage and allowing cities the power to give workers the right to paid sick days. Her experience as a disability rights attorney made her realize that workers across Texas need a bigger voice in Austin. UFCW supports Susan because she has been and will continue to be a champion for workers.
