| Toni Rose is the most qualified candidate running in HD 110. We unanimously endorse her for re-election.
Prior to her election to the Texas House in 2012, Toni Rose served as a mental health professional at Parkland Hospital She was also a member of many organizations in her community, such as the local NAACP and the League of Women Voters. This background of grassroots community activism continues to qualify her to represent HD 110.
During her first term in the house, she was a reliable supporter of progressive causes. We hope that in a second term she will be able to to use her background in mental health issues and her degree in criminal justice to become a leader on these important issues.
Rose's opponent, former Dallas City Council member Sandra Crenshaw, has been declared ineligible to run for the state representative seat because she did not meet the six-month residency requirement. Crenshaw's name will remain on the ballot, but if she wins, the Dallas County Democratic party will nominate a replacement--most likely Rose.
We believe Toni Rose is best qualified to represent HD 110. We enthusiastically endorse her for re-election.
