Annie’s List Endorses Sheryl Cole for HD 46
February 12, 2018
Annie’s List is proud to endorse Sheryl Cole for Texas House District 46, representing parts of Austin, Manor and Pflugerville! Sheryl has a long track record of integrity and persistence in community service, shepherding critical initiatives to improve the lives of her constituents.
Serving her community has been fundamental to the life story of this attorney and CPA. A graduate of UT Austin, Sheryl served on the Austin City Council from 2006 to 2015–the first African American woman elected to that office. With her leadership, Sheryl won the confidence of her colleagues and constituents—during four of those years, she held the job as mayor pro tem.
When elected to the legislature, Cole plans to continue to advocate for causes she helped advance in the past: affordable housing, education, police accountability, marriage equality and the environment. She will also push back on the attacks on women’s health and the right of women to make their own healthcare decisions, as well as the state’s failure to meet its own standard and teach evidence-based sex education.
Sheryl is on the March 6 primary ballot, so please, if you live in her district, get out and check the box for her. For those outside of District 46, please encourage friends and family who live there to cast their votes for her.
