DEMOCRATS WITH DISABALITIES ENDORSE HENRY
February 4, 2020
Patrick Henry picked up an endorsement Tuesday from the Texas Democrats with Disabilities caucus.
Texas State of Representatives House District 25 candidate Henry supports the movement for disability justice and pledges to represent the rights of all Texans.
According to the most recent published US Census Bureau data, 6.3% of Brazoria County residents and 10.9% of Matagorda County under the age of 65 are living with a disability.
"I am thrilled to have the endorsement of the Texas Democrats with Disabilities," Henry said. "I will advocate for equality and be a voice in Austin. As an educator I know the sky is the limit for all when there's a level playing field. We must continue to preserve and enhance the rights of disabled Texans."

"Known Patrick for years, and I’ve always been impressed with his commitment to public service as an educator, local government leader, and community member."
Greg Haston, Angleton
I have known Patrick, both personally and professionally, for over thirty years. During that time, I’ve come to appreciate him as a person of principle with the courage to act. As an educator, he worked to reach the best outcome for each of his students. As a citizen, he sought and held public office, culminating in five years as Mayor of Angleton. He’ll represent us in Austin with the same work ethic and commitment.
Carole Nielsen, Lake Jackson, retired Angleton ISD teacher
I taught for 7 years at AHS under the mentorship of both Kathy Lowe Henry and Patrick Henry for HD 25 and saw how both of them inspired students AND teachers to think on their own, think outside the box, and always challenge the bottom line.
I truly believe Patrick will put Public Education as a priority and can only dream of the changes possible with a veteran teacher in Austin.
GO PATRICK! You may not have his signs in your yard, but his voice can truly inspire change for our future!
Nina Alborzi Gore, Lake Jackson
I WANT YOUR ENDORSEMENT
