For weeks it has been assumed that community activist Claudia Fowler would run in the Democratic Primary for District 110 in the Texas House of Representatives. Fowler worked with Obama Dallas back in 2008, has worked with the Urban League and currently hosts “The Queen of Community Conversation,” on the DFWiRadio.com.
The last two times I saw Claudia she said she was seriously considering becoming a candidate herself. But today the word came down that Ms. Fowler has decided not to run, and is throwing her support behind Larry Taylor.
District 110 currently includes Fowler’s home area of Joppa. “I care deeply about Joppa and my district and had even been considering a run myself,” said Fowler in a recently released statement.
She went on to say ““I am enthusiastic about Larry Taylor’s campaign because he shares my Democratic values and because he will stand up for the needs of this community.” Fowler said she will encourage citizens of Joppa as well as her friends and family to support Taylor’s candidacy.
