T.C. Betancourt plans to run for the Texas State Representative seat for District 41 in the Democratic primary in March of 2012.
This would be Betancourt's first time running for a political position and his platform is targeting job creation in the Valley and working on a more affordable health care. Mr. Betancourt stated, "There were some issues that I was following very closely this last session and over the last eight to ten years and I felt that it was time to jump in and get off the sidelines and make a difference. That is exactly why I decided to do it now." The office is currently held by Republican State Representative Aaron Pena.
