“Jana Lynne Sanchez is an experienced businesswoman who will bring a meaningful perspective to the table by uplifting diverse voices in her district and helping Texans get back on their feet and thrive.

Statement from Latino Victory Fund President & CEO Nathalie Rayes on the City Council Candidates
“City council members are community leaders who make decisions that impact the lives of their constituents every day. Texas families are grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic recovery, which is why we need leaders in city councils who are committed to working for the people, not politics. Candidates like Adam Bazaldua, Ana Sandoval, Robert Treviño, and Tara Wilson are leaders who want a better future for their cities and who are centering their priorities on issues that matter to Latinos, including the economy, environment, and housing. They have the vision to create not only stronger cities but a stronger Texas. We are deeply proud to support these top-notch candidates and look forward to seeing them change Texas for the better.”
