Governor Greg Abbott today endorsed Republican candidate Cynthia Flores in the race for HD 52.
“I am honored by Governor Abbott’s support,” said Flores. “I am proud to serve as his appointee to the board of the Brazos River Authority, and to stand with him in protecting life, securing the border and enacting property tax reform.”
Flores is a caseworker for the Round Rock Area Serving Center (RRASC), where she helps feed, clothe and shelter 1,100 families a month in Williamson County. She is a 19-year resident of Round Rock, where she is active in the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce, and a prolific volunteer for causes that include senior care and helping children overcome the death of a parent.
Flores is a devout Catholic, active in her parish at Saint William Catholic Church. Her husband, Rene, serves on the Round Rock City Council. They have two children, Cecelia (21) and John Richard (19).
Flores is endorsed by a majority of precinct chairs in the district, State Representative Larry Gonzales, the Texas Association of Business BACPAC, the Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND, Associated Republicans of Texas, Hispanic Republicans of Texas, and Life PAC. If elected, she would be the only Hispanic Republican woman in the house.
“I am a committed conservative who has been in the trenches fighting for the least among us,” said Flores. “I will support conservative policies that lift people up, ending dependency on government programs and finding the dignity of independence. I will work side by side with Governor Abbott to make Texas a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
