A message from Patty Bordie, Director Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area:
The Texas Silver-Haired Legislature Notice to File for Candidacy has been released (see attached notice: tshl-notice-to-file-for-candidacy-2017). The vision of the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (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 govenmental affairs. TSHL is comprised of representatives across Texas who are 60 years of age and older elected by their peers, also 60 years of age and older. These legislators become directly involved in the state legislative process, working closely with Texas Legislators during each legislative session. Currently, the Capital Area TSHL District (Travis County and the nine surrounding counties) has six legislative positions available.
