On Friday, State Representative Mary González announced the “Positivity in Politics” initiative, which seeks to highlight examples of positivity in grassroots leadership over the next two years leading up to the 2020 Presidential Election.
“After Donald Trump’s comments yesterday, anyone could be forgiven for feeling that divisive rhetoric and antagonism have taken the place of policy-making. But it doesn’t have to be this way. That is why today I am announcing the ‘Positivity in Politics’ campaign. Over the next two years, we will be recognizing communities across Texas coming together, in the true spirit of America, to reject negativity and work together for a better future.” Rep. González said.
“People of color, LGBTQ folks, and other marginalized communities deserve to have their voices amplified and their work recognized,” said Rep. González. “I am looking forward to helping share their stories through my ‘Positivity in Politics’ initiative.”
If residents know of a leader, organization, or community they would like to be recognized, they contact Representative González’s office at (512) 463-0613.
