✅Left Up to Us endorses Mike Siegel (D-TX)
Siegel’s strong support for working people and immigrant families is informed by his years of experience as a civil rights attorney and his recent representation of the City of Austin against Senate Bill 4. He supports Medicare for All and has specific policy ideas regarding everything from criminal justice reform to renewable energy. His campaign has developed a professional campaign infrastructure and mobilized 150 volunteers throughout the district, and he hopes to organize a thousand volunteers by November. Siegel is also endorsed by Austin Central Labor Council, the Gulf Coast Labor Federation, AFSCME Local 1624, and UNITE HERE Local 23.
