In today's Watson Wire, we must do something big & bold on mobility. And we must do it soon. Transformation won’t come easy or cheap. But we can get it done for the generations to come and ensure accountability.

Half way through #Movember ! Half way through growing this facial hair. Half way through diet & increased exercise (uh, I actually need much more work on this). But I'm less than half way on fundraising. Can you help fight for men’s health w/ 25? $50? More?

I joined some of my House colleagues and members of our staffs at the @CTXFoodBank  this morning. Always fun to volunteer together and help our community in a different way. #FoodBank

Weeks ago I called for a stop to the execution of #RodneyReed . Today I stand w/ a bipartisan coalition of Senators saying TX must investigate all evidence before taking Reed's life. It's up to Gov. Abbott & Bd of Pardons & Paroles. My letter: #txlege 

#SB5 is dead. Women's health & women's rights are protected. We did it. And "we" means "you," too. #StandWithWendy

Will you please join me in helping out the family of Anthony Stephan House, the first victim of the #AustinBombings ? His wife and little girl need our support. Here's the link:

ICYMI: I've requested that Gov Abbott grant a reprieve b/c TX shouldn't execute #RodneyReed  w/o a thorough, unbiased review of all the evidence. We won't serve justice by ending a man's life while grave doubt & racial bias continue to taint his case.

More dead & injured, including heroic law enforcement. Our grief is great. Tomorrow, new, more lax gun laws are in effect. The irony is gross. It makes no sense. Texans must indeed unite. Unite in supporting commonsense laws that protect Texans & TX law enforcement. Time to act.

I'm proud of @WendyDavisTexas , and I'm proud to (literally) #StandWithWendy . 4 hours to go. #txlege  #SB5

Thoughts & prayers, roundtables & platitudes, recycled tweets of sorrow, specious calls for justice after the fact can't replace needed #txlege  action, real effort to prevent these horrible acts. And we need action in elections. We need to vote like lives depend on it. They do.

I stand firmly with the Muslim community. I reject the voices that seek to divide. I fight for all families. #txlege
