HOUSTON, TX - Fran Watson, candidate for Texas State Senate, District 17, Sunday received the endorsement of the Houston Federation of Teachers.
The Houston Federation of Teachers is a union of professionals that champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for our students, their families and our communities. We are committed to advancing these principles through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining and political activism, and especially through the work our members do.
“Thank you HFT for endorsing me for State Senate in District 17,” said Watson. “I am committed working toward building a state government that puts the people first. That means having access to a strong public education system that not only has the necessary resources to ensure that regardless of zip code, students can get a high quality education, but teachers, paraprofessionals, and other educational professionals have the support they need from entry level to retirement.”
