While many districts in Texas are all-red, Colin Allred stands a chance to make the 32nd district all-blue! Allred is running to unseat Republican Pete Sessions, who is feeling the heat. Allred, a former NFL player who went on to become a lawyer and worked in the Obama administration is clearly an advocate for all-of-us. Here’s a bit more about Allred, from his website here:
"Colin has both lived and fought for the American Dream.
Born and raised in North Dallas by a single mom who taught in Texas public schools for nearly 30 years, Colin was an All-Star athlete at Hillcrest High School before earning a full-ride football scholarship to Baylor University. Diploma in hand and prepared to attend law school after college, he deferred his acceptance to the University of California Berkeley School of Law when he signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent. Colin played the better part of five seasons in the NFL before sustaining a career-ending neck injury that opened the door for him to fulfill his dream of studying law and applying his legal training to help others.
As Special Assistant in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of General Counsel, Colin helped then-Secretary Julian Castro ensure that the most vulnerable Americans can live in dignity. Among his projects at HUD, Colin worked with Congress and the Office of the Inspector General to ensure that public funds were spent wisely without sacrificing services and to ensure that the Department complied with all applicable ethics laws and regulations. Here in Texas, he put his legal skills to work as the Dallas-Fort Worth Director of the first-ever statewide coordinated voter protection program led by Battleground Texas during the 2014 gubernatorial election."
A victory dance in District 32 would be especially sweet because Republican incumbent Pete Sessions was the architect of the Republicans taking over the House in 2010. Let’s ensure that karma delivers to make this Session’s last rodeo! Don’t stand on the sidelines, all-of-us must help Colin Allred turn District 32 in Texas all blue.
