Texas Realtors Endorse Rep. Peña
Edinburg – The Texas Association of Realtors have issued an endorsement today of State Representative Aaron Peña. Local members of the 90,000 strong state-wide organization met with Representative Peña at the ECHO Hotel in Edinburg to talk about issues important to homeowners and their industry and offer their support for his re-election.
“Realtors are an important part of our community,” said Representative Peña. “Protecting private property rights, working to keep our property taxes low and helping foster a good environment for small business are issues that are important to all hard working Texans. I am most proud that we have been successful in creating some real opportunities for growth in our economy while working to make our community smarter, stronger and healthier.”
Representative Peña met with local realtors and participated in a formal interview process. The local board then forwarded a recommendation to the Texas Association of Realtors for grassroot support for his re-election to the Texas House. In mid-January, 2008, the political communications subcommittee reviewed and considered these recommendations from each local association. Representative Peña was selected because of his strong record of support for the real estate industry and small business.
Representative Peña is seeking a 4th term in the Texas House of Representatives. He is chairman of the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence and sits on the powerful Committee on Ways and Means. Early vote for the Democratic Primary begins on February 19th and ends February 29th. Election Day is March 4th.
