"I've voted Republican many times, but not this year. Bob Hall actually said he doesn’t need the retired teacher vote and won’t invest in our public schools. I trust Kendall to support public schools and those of us who serve there."
Grace Slayter | TAMU-C Student Government Historian
"Per-semester tuition rates at Texas universities have increased 147% since 2002! That's why I'm investing in my future by voting for Kendall because he knows that the Legislature should invest in the students of Texas again."
John Sands | Former Member, Sulphur River Regional Mobility Authority and Former Mayor of Commerce
“The biggest advantage to increased funding in rural infrastructure is economic development - allowing people a greater variety of places to live, work, and play. I’m supporting Kendall because he’s talking about the things that affect every day rural Texans. It seems like Sen. Hall is just playing at politics.”
Lana Van Vleet | Retired Teachers
"Extremist politicians in Austin are bankrupting retired educators and taking away incentives for the next generation of teachers. I was Kendall's Sulphur Springs High School government teacher and I'm proud that we share the same No. 1 priority—public education."
Laurie Blaire | School Counselor
"As I near retirement from public education, I’m terrified that I won’t be able to afford healthcare through TRS. I will likely continue to work well past my “magic number” of 80 (age + years of service)."
