Van de Putte Makes Texas Monthly's '10 Best Legislators' List
(Austin) — Today, Texas Monthly magazine named State Senator Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio, District 26) to its biennial 10 Best Legislators List for the 83rd Texas Legislature. Senator Van de Putte released the following statement in response:
"Thanks to the editors of Texas Monthly for this prestigious honor. My staff and I poured a lot of hard work into this session, fighting for families, public education, our military and veterans, survivors of human trafficking, and small business entrepreneurs. I'm proud of what we accomplished in the 83rd Legislature, and it's gratifying to be recognized by such a keen observer of the Texas political scene.
"Thanks also to the people of San Antonio and Bexar County for making this honor possible by giving me their vote of confidence, and my family for always standing by my side. Since 1991, it has been a tremendous privilege and honor to stand up for the Alamo City, first in the House, and since 1999, in the Senate. It hasn't always been easy, but it's always been immensely satisfying."
