2019 State Endorsed Candidates

CENTRAL TEX (click here for regional list)

Sandra Blankenship, Killeen City Council District 3
“I believe that our representatives should work to put the future of our families first, and that experience comes best by listening and deeply engaging with citizens like us. I’m running because I want to take all of our voices to City Hall to ensure that Killeen continues to be a place where we can raise our families and build our dreams.”

GULF COAST (Click here for regional)


Joseph Say, Pearland ISD Trustee #6
The school board should govern with full transparency. Our students should have access to revolutionary technology, that will augment and empower their teachers, and themselves, to do more. We must ensure the tools they use enhance decades of educational research, while also keeping our students’ data secure.


Dr. Dona Kim Murphey, Pearland ISD Trustee #5
I am concerned about the dangerous nationwide trend of pushing academic excellence to the exclusion of developing the whole child. Mental health and counseling services have been grossly under-resourced and can serve our children and families better. I believe that when our schools focus on social and emotional development, in addition to academic achievement, we help our children grow into adults who contribute to a healthy community.


 Allison Drew, Fort Bend ISD Trustee #5
“As Mayor, I want to raise wages of city employees to $15/hr, implement a transportation policy that will address the bus shortage, invest 15% of the hotel tax into the arts, and so much more.”


Al Lloyd, Pearland ISD Trustee #7
“Having been involved in education for over 25 years, I have long worked for positive change in Houston and Pearland. My family and I now feel that the time has come for me to seek elected office for the Pearland ISD School Board Trustee position #3. I will bring world-class solutions and protocols for suicide crisis prevention. I will institute research-based safety measures to make all lives safe at our schools.”
