see you next year

Thanks to everyone who watched #WonkOlympics this year! Now it’s time for us to gear up for our own Olympics: next year’s Legislative session.

Will the copiers be ready? Will the Excel formulas work in time? How many pies are needed to explain property taxes this upcoming legislative session?


Our wonks worked hard training to fight and advocate for working families in Texas. Over the last two weeks we had some fun preparing for the 2017 Texas Legislative session. Here’s a recap of some of the events we competed in:

  •             Lighting of the Ceremonial Coffee Pot Torch
  •             Presentation Easel Javelin
  •             Fiscal Size Up Weightlifting
  •             Excel Formula Racing
  •             Research Paper Relays
  •             Parallel Bar Charts
  •             Obsolete Computer Shotput
  •             Staplerchase:
