Best First Termer

Celia Israel

The freshman representative from Austin’s 50th district wasted no time digging in during her first legislative session. She took up issues as wide-ranging as the care of pregnant people in jails to congestion on I-35, and even managed to gather the support of none other than Jonathan Stickland for the bills (HB 1140 and 1141) dealing with the former. Her enthusiasm, intelligence, and practicality are a welcome deviation from the Texas legislative norm.
