Skilled Nursing Providers Lend Support to Candidate on the Eve of March 1st Election
(Austin, TX) – The political action committee (PAC) of Texas’ largest association representing nursing home providers across the state, the Texas Health Care Association (THCA), announced its endorsement today of Tomas Uresti, Democratic candidate for the District 118 seat in the Texas House of Representatives. THCA PAC leaders cited Uresti’s support for senior health care issues and his understanding of the need to address the serious issues in staffing in the long term care sector.
“Tomas Uresti has made senior issues a priority of his campaign and that aligns with nursing home providers who see the health and well-being of seniors as a top legislative priority,” said Kevin Warren, CEO of the THCA. “It is clear that candidate Uresti is able to work with community leaders, understands the needs of his district’s most pressing issues and will stand as a committed advocate for his constituents.”
