Update on Milton Riser Confirmation, Not too late to act
With a little scrounging, and some more help from Rep. Thompson’s office, the Texas Progressive Alliance has come up with some more phone numbers.
Milton Riser’s confirmation is set for tomorrow. Riser is a Republican operative, and is up for appointment as Legislative Council Director. Not only is Riser up for appointment to the Lege Council as a member, this partisan and cronyist operative is up for appointment as the director of the whole shebang. Make some calls, tell the members of the committie that you oppose the appointment of Milton Riser to the Legislative Council.
The following House members sit on the committe:
Tom Craddick: (512) 463-1000, Ryan Guillen (512) 463-0416, Peggy Hamric (512) 463-0496, Linda Harper-Brown, (512) 463-0641, Lois Kolkhorst (512) 463-0600, Robert Talton (512) 463-0460, Corbin Van Arsdale (512) 463-0661
