Austin, TX ─ This morning, State Representative Victoria Neave was elected Co-Chair of the Dallas Area Legislative Delegation (DALD) by her colleagues. Each legislative session, the members of the DALD select one Democrat and one Republican as joint leaders of the bi-partisan House delegation. Rep. Neave will serve alongside Rep. Button, who was elected as the Republican Co-Chair.

"I applaud Representative Neave and Representative Button for stepping up to lead the Dallas Area Legislative Delegation for the 86th Texas Legislature. I look forward to working with them and our newly elected delegation members to advocate for and advance the interests of our shared region," stated Representative Johnson.

“It has been an honor to work alongside State Rep. Eric Johnson as a member of the Dallas Area Legislative Delegation for the past two years," said State Rep. Victoria Neave. "His work on affordable housing as well as his successful efforts to limit suspensions for children in pre-kindergarten through second grade have improved the lives of Dallas families and our entire community. I will work hard to continue Rep. Johnson's legacy of steadfast leadership."

Rep. Neave also spoke about plans for the upcoming legislative session, stating, “Dallas County is the second largest county in the state and one of the fastest growing regions in the country. Our Dallas Area Legislative Delegation is composed of phenomenal experts and advocates, and is well-positioned to advocate for the interests of Dallas area residents and businesses, particularly increasing public education funding, improving access to healthcare, and developing our transportation infrastructure.”

State Representative Victoria Neave represents Texas House District 107, which includes parts of East Dallas, Mesquite, and Garland. She serves on the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence and the House Committee on Corrections. She was named "Freshman of the Year" by the House Democratic Caucus in the 85th Legislature and one of the "5 Best Legislators in North Texas" by the Dallas Observer.
