Today I sent out the statement below to my supporters. I know this is an important election and we need a fighter in Austin that will put people first! That’s why I’m endorsing Sylvia Garcia for Senate District 6.

Putting people first,

 
 
 

Joaquin Martinez, #ProjectSD6

 

“My goal in OUR SD6 race was to have a new voice at the table.

#ProjectMtz has brought a change to our political landscape and we want to continue the work of voter outreach, education, and most importantly, participation. A new coalition of the people and for the people is possible! This week has compelled me to look into the community’s best interest. My experience with one of Houston’s oldest and largest non-profits has guided my decision of endorsing Sylvia Garcia.

I feel that her strong social work background will allow us to pave the way towards building new, positive, and constructive relationships. Throughout my campaign for SD6, I truly appreciated Sylvia's encouragement to stand up for what I believe in. As a young, progressive, and energetic Latino, I have the responsibility to be a part of a change in Houston politics. I regard Sylvia as someone who can empower many from our generation to participate in the dynamics of social progress. It is important to continue our involvement in the political process - and this is why I am asking all who supported me during my race for SD6 to show your support for Sylvia Garcia.

The turnout has been predicted to be LOW, but we will continue working from where we left off in our ongoing mission to increase our voter turnout, engage our communities, and inspire unified action. We do not have the date for the runoff election yet, but we will stay informed and engaged. I plan on showing my support for Sylvia by continuing to march these boots on the ground. I welcome all young, energetic individuals to join and help the work along.

Stay tuned to upcoming events and volunteer opportunities! Sylvia Garcia for Senate District 6!"
