Leadership needed to reduce child abuse tragedies

Despite efforts by state Sen. Carlos Uresti and others seeking improvements and so much good work locally, a federal court recently held the Texas foster care system unconstitutional, concluding the state has endangered children with unreasonably high caseloads, dangerous foster group homes, inadequate investigations into abuse and neglect and a lack of placement options. The Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities, established by legislation I authored, just released its final report, focusing on the need for prevention and more investment for vulnerable children, best local practices and some modest recommendations for improvement.

Thank you, for the encouragement and support, especially throughout these recent weeks. The low turnout does signal how much work remains to ensure Democratic victories in the General Election in November.

There are no unimportant elections and no unimportant races. From the courthouse to the statehouse to the Congress, I will be working for Democratic victories.
