TEXAS 23RD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
For Immediate Release
Contact: Juan Rodriguez, Lira for Congress,
April 21, 2022 Democratic Nominee for Congress John Lira (TX-23) announces the “Boots on the Ground Tour” in TX-23. Since raising his hand to serve, John has had his boots on the ground at the forefront of some of the toughest environments from combat in Iraq, to helping his fellow veterans transition, to serving at the forefront of national service legislation on Capitol Hill. As a candidate, he has once again laced up his boots and is ready to once again serve his neighbors in Southwest Texas. Prior to launching his campaign, John committed to visit each of the 29 counties in Texas’ 23rd U.S. House Congressional District.
This listening tour is to give him the opportunity to hear directly from voters what their concerns are and to work on solutions together through roundtable discussions, meet and greet events, block walking and community organizing.
“During the primary season, I had the opportunity to visit over half of the counties in the district. On these trips I met many wonderful people that genuinely care about Texas and its people. Voters in Dimmit, Maverick, Bexar and El Paso and many others shared their concerns about the humanitarian border crisis, the erosion of voting rights, a diminishing workforce, the chilling attack on women’s reproductive rights and also the crumbling infrastructure issues in Texas’ 23rd Congressional District. I was told that these communities felt overlooked and neglected by leadership in Austin and Washington. To me this is more than just an opportunity for photo opportunities, to me this is a ‘listening and action’ tour, it is an opportunity to hear the truth about what’s on the minds and hearts of voters,” stated John Lira.
John Lira’s Boots on the Ground Tour kicks off this week in Bexar County and will continue all the way through the General Election. The Texans for Lira Campaign will distribute dates, times and events as they are scheduled.
