(Austin, TX) - Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC has endorsed Elizabeth Ames Jones in Senate District 25. In making the endorsement, TLR PAC Chairman Richard J. Trabulsi, Jr., said:
“Elizabeth Ames Jones is a principled conservative who has a stellar record of public service in Texas. When Elizabeth was representing San Antonio in the Texas House, she was a vigorous advocate for the 2003 medical liability reforms. She has always understood the critical role of lawsuit reform in boosting job creation, strengthening the state’s economy and making doctors and health care widely-accessible to Texans. Elizabeth’s character and experience in taking on tough issues will make her an excellent addition to the Texas Senate. TLR PAC is proud to endorse her.”
Trabulsi added that TLR PAC has long believed that the communities and businesses in Senate District 25, which includes half of Bexar County, all of Comal County and parts of Kendall, Hays and Guadalupe Counties, need a state senator who is committed to tort reform.
“We do not take the challenge of any incumbent lightly, but we believe that SD 25 must have a senator who is committed to the business expansion, job creation, access to health care and respect for the law that meaningful tort reform produces.”
Elizabeth is a sixth generation Texan who was born in San Antonio. She was first elected to the Texas House in 2000 and re-elected in 2002 and 2004. She was sworn in as Railroad Commissioner in 2005. In the House she served as Chairman of Budget and Oversight for the Energy Resources Committee and served on other key committees including Appropriations and Select School Finance. She is the first woman elected to a leadership position in the House Republican Caucus.
TLR PAC is the political arm of Texans for Lawsuit Reform, the state's largest civil justice reform organization. TLR is a bipartisan, volunteer-led coalition with more than 17,000 supporters residing in 818 Texas communities and representing 1,266 different businesses, professions and trades.
