Feb. 28 marks Silver-Haired Legislature filing deadline

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Want to serve in the 15th Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL), representing senior constituencies for a two-year term? Be sure to file by Feb. 28 for May 28, 2013, elections. Candidates must be 60 or older, registered voters and residents of the Texas district they wish to represent.

The 69th Texas Legislature authorized the TSHL in April 1985 for participants to identify issues and concerns of their peers and propose solutions. In a tradition spanning more than two decades, the 14th TSHL met last September at the Texas State Capitol and adopted 65 resolutions to address the needs of older Texans.

Candidates for the 15th Texas Silver-Haired Legislature whose residence is within the Capital Area Agency on Aging's 10-county jurisdiction should contact agency director Jennifer Scott for information on filing, duties of the office, necessary forms and deadlines. > Go
