In addition to more than 300 endorsements from neighborhood leaders across District 14, I am proud to share with you that I have just received FOUR major endorsements from respected Dallas organizations: the Dallas Police Association, Dallas Fire Fighters Association, MetroTex Association of Realtors, and the Dallas AFL-CIO.

Making our neighborhoods safer has been a priority of mine since I took office, so I am deeply honored that my commitment to public safety has earned me the endorsement of both the Police and Fire Associations. “As a City Councilmember, Angela has worked with law enforcement and community leaders to help us reduce crime 30% since she took office,” said Glenn White, President of the Dallas Police Association.  “Her experience, integrity, and commitment to her community is unquestioned.”

Peter Urrutia of MetroTex Realtors cited my commitment to District 14 neighborhoods: “Angela has proven time and again she is not only committed to representing neighborhoods, but improving them, too.  No matter the street, no matter the issue, Angela tries to make District 14 better, block by block. It makes our jobs easier when we have a neighborhood advocate like Angela on the council, and we’re proud to give her our endorsement.”

“It’s important that fire fighters have strong advocates at City Hall,” said D.D. Pierce, President of the Dallas Fire Fighters Association. “Angela Hunt has been just that. She’s fought for the resources we need to keep Dallas safe and has been a great partner and friend to Dallas fire fighters. We look forward to her continued service to our city.”

In addition, in the last couple of weeks, I have received hundreds of endorsements from residents across the district, and the outpouring of support has been humbling.

From Brenda Marks in Oak Lawn saying “the council needs more Angelas” to Steve Atkinson and Ted Kinkaid calling me “a staunch ally of our LGBT community” to East Dallas resident Judith Timmerman saying “Angela’s winning combination of brains, integrity, and courage are exactly what this city needs,” — THANK YOU so much for supporting my re-election effort!

If you would like to add your endorsement to the growing list of community leaders who want to ensure that we have an experienced, independent voice at Dallas City Hall, please visit my support page.

Thank you to everyone for your support!
