Progressive Texas Democrat
Chris Leal for Texas House 114
Who is Chris Leal?
I am a Dallas native, a public school teacher, a union member, a lifelong progressive Democrat, a first-generation college graduate, and a proud Tejano whose family has lived in Texas for 300 years. Now, I’m rolling up my sleeves for the fight for ALL Texans to have stronger, healthier communities.
Chris believes in:
- Progressive Texas Values
- Economic Justice
- Texas for All
“Leadership as bold as Texas”
Dallas is one of the most influential cities in our state and country, and it’s time we have leadership that reflects that.
I come from a working-class, union-built family with Tejano roots that go back 300 years. I am the first in my family to graduate from college, earning cum laude from Texas Tech University with a degree in finance and economics.
Today, I teach a Law & Justice course I made for 7th & 8th graders at a historic public magnet school in Dallas. Everyday I see firsthand the needs of our district and our state through the lives of my middle school students and their families.
Like most, I’m tired of the political games and toxic bills coming out of Austin. Dallas deserves real leadership — Leadership as Bold as Texas. Join me in the fight to bring progressive Texas values back to our state Capitol and to finally turn Texas blue again.
