Katy Aldredge, capitol dir. for @VoteGiovanni and Kelsey Erickson, gen. counsel for @KirkPWatson received the James Madison Award from the @TxFOIFT.

Both were key to passing SB 943 & SB 944, major TAB-advocated bills in the 2019 Legislature to restore access to public records.

Today, @TxFOIFT recognized the important work of the two legislative staffers who ushered key Public Information Act reforms through the #txlege: Kelsey Erickson, my general counsel, and Katy Aldredge with @VoteGiovanni. I'm grateful for their dedication, patience and expertise.
