Lloyd Doggett continues to represent what is good for Texas and the country. I’m proud that he did not vote for the bailout. He is a champion of the honest, working, everyday folks.
I want to thank Congressman Doggett for his strong support of health insurance reform. Because of the reforms enacted this year, our 2 year old daughter with a serious genetic condition can no longer be denied the right to quality healthcare coverage.
Congressman Doggett had the courage to support health care reform because he really understands how easy it is to lose your coverage and how unworkable the system has been in recent decades. He’s always stood up for the interests of individuals, families and small businesses. I’m very proud of his statesmanlike approach to government service and his political intelligence in getting things done.
“I am a life long Austin Democrat and am so very proud to have Congressman Lloyd Doggett as my representative in Congress. I moved from the 10th District when it was created as I did not want that Congressman to say he was speaking for me. I totally support Lloyd Doggett for US Congress.”

“I can plainly see that there are not enough resources for the teachers or the students here in Austin. We need Perry to stop putting his politics in front of our children’s education and properly fund our schools so our children can get the education they deserve. I want to thank U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, for standing up for the teachers and children of our great state.”

“I was so encouraged when Congress and the President recently enacted a financial reform act. In fact, I was very pleased to read about Congressman Lloyd Doggett’s strong support for these efforts in his recent piece in the Daily Record.”

“In addition to listening to the public, he goes to bat for requests from the cities, procuring government funds to assist in the Smithville Post Office upgrade and assisting in the move of the Bastrop Historical Society to a larger museum. I don’t accept ‘do nothing’ as a solution and I am glad Congressman Doggett doesn’t either.”

We are closer than ever to enacting real, meaningful immigration reform that keeps families together and ensures every student who came here by no fault of their own has the opportunity to seek more education after high school and achieve their full potential. Recently, at the U.S. Capitol, I joined several of my colleagues including Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Chairman of the Hispanic Caucus Immigration Task Force, Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers, and thousands of advocates to say the time for reform is now. Today, as I participate in a community discussion on immigration reform with Rep. Gutierrez in San Antonio, I am hopeful that we can move ahead with this reform.
San Antonio, TX– After months of the hard work of people like you committed to stand up to Governor Perry’s attempts to divide our communities, Rep. Doggett’s new San Antonio federal office opens at 217 West Travis St. near Santa Rosa Hospital.
A bipartisan bill aimed at reducing child fatalities from abuse or neglect has been passed by the Senate, clearing the way for the creation of a national commission on an issue that has disproportionately affected Texas and Bexar County families, according to advocates and state officials.
The Protect Our Kids Act, co-sponsored by Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Michigan, calls for the creation of a 12-member commission that will study a host of issues around deaths related to child abuse and neglect, from the adequacy of current programs to more effective prevention methods.
“Texas has the highest rate of child abuse and neglect fatalities in the nation,” Doggett said in a news release. “The Protect Our Kids Act will help provide thoughtful consideration of the steps we can take to better protect vulnerable children. Working together in a bipartisan way, we can make meaningful progress on this troubling issue.” Read More »
