AUSTIN, TX – Wearing red tee shirts, Bob Harrison, VaLois Hounsel, Mimi Luna, Wanda Overacker, Ramona Simons, and Marilyn Smith stormed the Capitol as representatives for the Duncanville Area Retired School Employees (DARSE) of Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA). As education retirees, we are very engaged politically and know how important it is that we work across the aisle with all legislators. We are grateful for the efforts our Senators and Representatives have made so far and feel they genuinely care about us. TRTA will continue to lobby throughout legislative session for affordable health care and the preservation of the TRS defined benefit pension plan.
