August 24, 2010 – AUSTIN – The Texas Association of Realtors today announced its decision to endorse Todd Hunter in his election to the Texas House to represent District 32. Making the statement last week, Chairman Bill Jones commended Hunter’s commitment to the interests of Texas homeowners.
“When lawmakers return to work in 2011, they will be faced with many difficult decisions,” said Jones. “That’s why we need lawmakers like Hunter who understand the critical role homeowners play in keeping our state’s economy strong, which is why we’ve pledged our full support.”
Currently, Texas ranks 44th out of 50 states in homeownership. Electing lawmakers who understand homeowners’ concerns and act accordingly to bolster homeownership in Texas is the association’s top priority this election season. As a member of the Texas House for more than a decade, Hunter has supported policies and initiatives that are in the best interests of property rights and homeownership throughout the state.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Texas Association of Realtors,” Hunter said. “As small business owners, Texas Realtors make the dream of homeownership more affordable for all Texans and I will strive to help support this important goal.” As one of the largest professional membership associations in the state, the Texas Association of Realtors expects to be a considerable grassroots force for Todd Hunter.
