Terry Meza is facing a runoff election on May 27 to serve as Texas State Representative for House District 105 which includes Irving and Grand Prairie. Her campaign was bolstered by endorsements from key leaders in Irving. First, Anthony Bond founder of the Irving Chapter of the NAACP and vocal community activist; and Irving City Councilman Dennis Webb- reelected earlier this month for a second term, who is also a retired Grand Prairie fireman. In addition, Meza announced she was endorsed by her former opponent Bernice Montgomery.
“I am humbled to have the support of Councilman Dennis Webb and of Anthony Bond in the runoff race for State Representative for Irving and Grand Prairie. Together tonight we made a special announcement. Bernice Montgomery, who was also a candidate in the Democratic Primary, has graciously endorsed me in the runoff. My sincere thanks to her for the confidence she has placed in me. We share the great democratic values of justice, equality, fairness, and compassion for the less fortunate. I welcome her participation in my campaign and that of her supporters. Together we hope to serve The residents of Irving and Grand Prairie and the State of Texas in the state legislature.”
Montgomery’s endorsement could prove to be pivotal because together they received 53 percent of the votes cast in the March Primary election. Meza is facing Susan Motley on May 27 with early voting beginning on Monday, May 19.
