Donna identifies a significant truth here πŸ‘‡πŸ½ We repeatedly ask our Texas Senators to hold town halls, to meet with us, to talk with constituents about pressing issues and solutions. Our experience has been they are only willing to meet with high dollar donors #txlege 1/
Week after week, we’ve gone to their offices - offices paid by our tax dollars - and asked to meet with them, only to either be turned away by security personnel, or given 3 or 4 minutes with junior staff. Despite giving our contact info, no one follows up or engages with us 2/
We’re asking for genuine representation from elected officials, leaders who will listen to us, prioritize us, be accountable to VOTERS rather than big-dollar donors.
Corporations ask for tax cuts;
Real people ask for health care, good schools, clean air, please listen to us! 3/
