Election Day is sneaking up on us again. It’s not an election that’s been getting much attention. But it’s for real and it deals with real important stuff.
The issue on the ballot that I’ve been pushing the most is Proposition 6, which would re-authorize Texas’ life-saving investment in cancer research and prevention. There’s no doubt that advances made as a result of financing the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) have improved the odds of survival for countless people facing a terrifying diagnosis.
Texans will also consider an important and long-overdue commitment to flood mitigation and preparedness with Proposition 8.
I encourage everyone to get out to vote.
