With Early Voting Underway, Allred Urges Texans to Vote FOR Propositions 2, 8, and 9

Dallas, TX — With early voting beginning today in Texas for the 2023 uniform statewide election, Congressman Colin Allred released the following statements urging Texans to vote FOR Propositions 2, 8, and 9:

On Proposition 2, which would allow the reduction of taxes for certain child care facilities:

“I hear all the time from working families about high child care costs and as a dad to two young boys I know how those costs can add up. That’s why I’ve made it a priority to provide relief to working families at the federal level, and I’m pleased to see efforts at the state level too. I urge all Texans to vote for Proposition 2 and help reduce costs for child care in Texas.”

On Proposition 8, which would create a fund to expand high-speed broadband across the state:

“From farmers and ranchers running their businesses, to kids doing their homework, to friends and family staying connected, Texans in every corner of our state need access to high-speed internet. 

I was proud to help pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which is investing $65 billion nationwide to expand high-speed internet access – and help ensure more Texans are able to get online. Now, with Proposition 8, we are able to bolster these efforts with a state-level fund to continue increasing internet access for underserved communities and I hope Texans take full advantage of this opportunity to help further connect all of Texas to high-speed internet.”

On Proposition 9, which would provide a pension cost-of-living increase to retired Texas public school teachers:

“As the son of a retired public school teacher, I know firsthand how hard our teachers work and that we don’t pay them enough. With our state facing a teacher shortage, we must do all we can to incentivize folks to join the profession including by paying teachers more and ensuring they are able to retire comfortably. I hope all Texans will join me in voting for Proposition 9 and giving our state’s retired teachers the cost-of-living adjustments they have earned.”
