This list clearly demonstrates that our campaign has gained incredible momentum since I announced my campaign for Senate District 14 in early March. We are building a large and diverse grassroots movement centered on remote person-to-person interaction and direct community service in response to the overwhelming need in our communities.
The pandemic has made it clear that working families and small businesses need a state senator who will fight for them and confront the inequality that this crisis has exposed.
As your state representative, I am working every day to help folks get through the public health and economic crises while collaborating with activists, advocates and community leaders on developing long-term solutions for the difficult road that lies ahead.
Our message is resonating with voters and, together with this incredible team, we will continue building momentum through victory in July. Join the team at EddieforTexas.com/volunteer.
COVID-19: Here to Help
My office continues to hear from constituents whose lives have been profoundly impacted by COVID-19 and who need basic assistance with food, healthcare, rent and utilities. It has become abundantly clear that the pandemic and economic crisis are not impacting our communities equally:
- Here in Travis County and across the nation, COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting people of color.
- Yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell announced that 40% of U.S. households earning less than $40,000 a year lost their jobs in March.
- Also yesterday, the Kaiser Family Foundation released a study that found 1.6 million Texans lost employer-sponsored health insurance in the last two months.
Far too many people are still struggling to get through to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) to apply for unemployment insurance benefits or to resolve issues with their claims. Many constituents I have heard from are also concerned about food insecurity, losing their health insurance and facing possible eviction after the Texas Supreme Court’s moratorium on eviction proceedings expires on May 18.
My priority in this moment is to advocate for and serve those who need it the most. If you, your family or someone you know needs help with a TWC claim or other basic assistance, please fill out the contact form at EddieforTexas.com/help and a member of my team will follow up with you as soon as possible.
I am working non-stop for vulnerable Texans, working families, small businesses and those on the front lines of our coordinated response right now. If there’s anything that I need to know or if you need help, please reply to this e-mail or send a message to Eddie@EddieforTexas.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Stay tuned for further updates as we work together to get through the current public health emergency and economic crisis.
