The Texas Silver-Haired Legislature Notice to File for Candidacy has been released (see attached notice). The vision of the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL) is that applied wisdom, energy, and experience of aging will improve the lives of all Texans through education, knowledge and involvement in legislation and governmental affairs. TSHL is comprised of representatives across Texas who are 60 years of age and older elected by their peers, also 60 years of age and older. These legislators become directly involved in the state legislative process, working closely with the Texas Legislators during each legislative session. Currently, the Capital Area THSL District (Travis County and the nine surrounding counties) has six legislative positions available.
AAACAP is seeking your assistance posting the attached Notice to File for Candidacy and sharing the notice via email, website links and other available public communication access points where possible through February 28, 2017. Your participation is greatly appreciated. If additional hard copies are needed let me know and I will provide those to you.
Interested applicants must complete and submit four required forms to the Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area by 2/28/2017. Applicant inquiries and requests for candidate forms can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to Patty Bordie at 512-916-6053.
