Dallas-area State Rep. Receives Support for Re-Election from Chairman of the Texas House Public Education Committee, Rep. Dan Huberty (HD-127)

(Irving, TX)– Rep. Matt Rinaldi (R-Irving) today announced that the Chairman of the Texas House Public Education Committee, State Representative Dan Huberty, has endorsed him for re-election. Rep. Huberty served as the Chairman of the House Public Education Committee for the Regular and First Called Special Sessions of the 85th Texas Legislative Session.

“As Chairman of the House Committee on Public Education, I have seen firsthand Matt Rinaldi’s commitment to public education in our state,” said Chairman Huberty in his endorsement. “Matt joined me in adding an additional $4 Billion dollars in education funding, worked to eliminate high-stakes standardized testing and stood up for our retired educators by providing additional funding to the Teacher Retirement System and TRS Care. If you support our public schools, teachers and students, please join me in supporting Matt Rinaldi’s re-election. I can count on Matt. So can you,” he concluded.

Chairman Huberty’s endorsement is one more on a growing list of Rep. Rinaldi’s Legislative colleagues expressing their public support for his re-election. That list includes 9 Chairman, 10 Vice-Chairman, and 47 Texas House Representatives to date.

“I’m proud of my record of consistently standing up for Texas students and teachers in the Legislature. Public education and stronger public schools will always be a top priority for me. To have the endorsement of so many leaders from this important field is humbling. I am grateful for their unbridled support.”

In the 84th and 85th Legislative Sessions, Rinaldi’s accomplishments include voting to appropriate an additional $4 Billion in funding for public education and authoring a bill to end the broken and unpopular Robin Hood school funding mechanism.

On the campaign trail, Matt has advocated for working to increase the state’s portion of public education spending, saying that, “By doing so, Texas can tackle two critically important challenges facing our state: having stronger schools and lowering skyrocketing property taxes.”

The general election will be on November 6, 2018.
