Texas Silver-Haired Legislatures seeks election candidates

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

The Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL) released its Notice to File for Candidacy earlier this month seeking older adults to serve the organization. Interested parties must complete and submit four required forms to the Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area by Feb. 28, 2017 to file for the election.

The vision of 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 or older elected by their peers. These legislators become directly involved in the state legislative process, working closely with Texas legislators during each legislative session. Currently, the Capital Area THSL District, which is the ten-county CAPCOG region, has six legislative positions available.
