(AUSTIN, Texas) — The Texas Health Care Association Political Action Committee is proud to announce its support of Killeen Mayor Scott Cosper in the May 24 runoff for Texas House District 54.
THCA PAC leaders cited Cosper’s support for senior health care and his understanding of the need to address the serious staffing and funding issues in the long term care sector.
“As Killeen Mayor, Scott Cosper learned firsthand how important skilled nursing care is to both central Texas seniors and the central Texas economy,” said Kevin Warren, Texas Health Care Association president. “The Texas Health Care Association PAC knows Scott Cosper 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.”
The Texas Health Care Association represents skilled nursing providers across the state and is one of the Capitol’s most powerful advocates for senior citizens.
