Texas Health Care Association PAC endorses Reggie Smith for House District 62

Skilled nursing providers backing candidates who will stand up for Texas seniors


(AUSTIN, TEXAS) — The political action committee representing skilled nursing and assisted living facilities across Texas today announced their endorsement of Reggie Smith in the May 22 GOP runoff election for state House District 62.

“Decisions made in Austin help determine the quality of long term care across the state,” said Kevin Warren, president and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association. “The Texas Health Care Association PAC stands behind candidates who have indicated their willingness to stand up for senior Texans, and we are putting our support behind Reggie Smith for House District 62.”

House District 62 has been vacated by former state Rep. Larry Phillips, R-Sherman.

The long term care industry employs more than 110,000 Texans, paying more than $4 billion in direct wages every year.

“Families with a loved one in a long term care facility should know that Reggie Smith will be looking out for them in Austin,” Warren said. “THCAPAC works hard to make sure that’s the case.”
