Texas Heritage Protection Encourages Texans to Support Environmental Champions on Super Tuesday
Published 11:35 am Monday, February 29, 2016
Austin, Texas—Today, the leaders of Texas Heritage Protection (THP) encouraged their fellow Texans to support candidates for the State House and Senate who have pledged to be strong stewards for Texas’s vast natural resources.
THP’s endorsements for tomorrow’s March 1st Primary include both incumbents and challengers. In addition, our picks for the 85th legislative session embrace contenders from both political parties, crossing the ideological divide. While THP is primarily a conservative-leaning organization, its leaders do not believe that protecting our environment is an issue belonging to either political party or any particular ideology.
Texas Heritage Protection is hard at work with citizens and lawmakers to help safeguard the air we breathe, the water we drink, the wildlife we enjoy and the natural systems that sustain our life on Earth. We encourage residents and representatives to promote responsible stewardship of our state’s unique natural resources. We encourage others to adopt commonsense, science-based solutions to curtail litter, safeguard our environment and help keep Texas clean as well.
THP’s members are confident the leaders that have been selected to carry our endorsement will join us in elevating public awareness and providing solutions to address the growing litter problem in our state. We hope lawmakers recognize the economic opportunities and benefits in increased tourism that come with preserving Texas’s natural beauty and heritage.
THP’s leaders are asking the people of Texas to join with them in supporting these trailblazers tomorrow at the ballot box. Texans have a long history of fighting for our natural environment and enjoying the frontier aspects of our state. THP looks forward to its future working relationship with these candidates and to achieving our shared goal: encouraging more Texans to be responsible stewards of the place we love and call home.
