For Texas House District 52
An 8th generation Texan who was born and raised in Round Rock -- the community he seeks to represent in the legislature -- James Talarico attended Round Rock public schools and earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin. After earning his graduate degree in education, he taught middle school in San Antonio before moving back home and becoming the Central Texas Executive Director of Reasoning Mind, a non-profit that ensures low-income students have access to 21st-century technology. James' passion and life's work has been to lift up others through education, and his work ethic and dedication make us confident he'll do that and more; indeed, as part of his campaign, in May, he traveled the entire length of his district on foot -- walking 25 miles and holding 3 town halls in 3 cities in 10 hours. We're excited at what James can accomplish in the statehouse and beyond, and are thrilled to play a part in helping him get there!
