Jaworski earns Chronicle endorsement

October 14th, 2008

Texas League of Conservation Voters knows how to pick ’em. Last month, we endorsed Joe Jaworski over incumbent Senator “Toxic Mike” Jackson for District 11.

Today, the Houston Chronicle followed our lead. The Chron wrote:

In a district that includes portions of hurricane-ravaged Galveston, constituents need a forceful and energetic senator to promote their interests in next year’s legislative session. The Chronicle believes the right candidate for the job is Democratic challenger Joe Jaworski, an attorney and fourth-generation Texan from a prestigious line of litigators, including his grandfather, Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski.

The candidate lives in Galveston with his wife and two children and has already compiled a record of distinctive public service there. Jaworski served three terms on Galveston City Council, the last as mayor pro tem. He chaired the city’s ethics commission and promises to push ethics reforms with high standards for public officials in Austin….

Need we add that Jaworski will also be a strong vote for environmental conservation, clean air, and good stewardship of our environment in the Senate? And may we remind you that, if elected, Joe will replace Sen. Mike Jackson, who never met a good environmental bill he didn’t hate?

It’s time to clean up the Texas environment by cleaning Mike Jackson out of the Texas Senate, and Joe Jaworski is the man for the job.
