Jessica Farrar’s Endorsement

“Having had the honor of representing Texas House District 148 for 25 years, I feel confident that Penny Morales Shaw is the candidate that will best represent the people of the district.

Penny will be as focused on long-standing residents as she will be for our new neighbors, which has always been my concern as the district changed. Penny’s skills from two decades in the courtroom make her a fierce advocate for the district.

Like me, she has unwavering support for public schools, access to healthcare, and the creation of job opportunities. And, I have full confidence that she will carry the torch fighting for women’s and GLBTQ rights as strongly, and stronger, as I have.

I ask for your support for Penny Morales Shaw.”

Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia’s Endorsement

“Penny Shaw is my choice for all our neighbors in Texas House District 148. 

She will fight for quality public schools for our kids, work hard for jobs and health care for all, and always stand with Dreamers and their families. 

We need someone who won’t back down and will hold Republicans in Austin accountable.”

  • “Penny Shaw and I crossed paths years ago as we both served our constituents in our respective roles. There, I had the opportunity to observe and evaluate her passion and dedication to her work. Having the required legislative experience to represent District 148, Penny understands the importance of building a relationship with her constituents and is willing to listen to identify the problems and needs of her district. Ms. Shaw is ethical, honest, trustworthy and self-motivated. She is ready to work for the people not special interests to forge a future for District 148 that is a direct reflection of responsible governance. Join me in supporting Penny Shaw as the best qualified candidate to represent District 148 in the House of Representatives.” -Connie Esparza
