Dwaine Caraway, Dallas Mayor Pro Tem, says Shami “represents hope”
DALLAS—On Friday night at a dinner given by the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway announced his endorsement of Texas Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Farouk Shami.
Caraway and Shami met recently during one of Shami’s many campaign stops and said that he was impressed with the gubernatorial candidate for several reasons, but mostly because “he speaks with experience and from the heart. He speaks about issues—jobs, economic development—that affect the average citizen and those who have not had a voice for some time.” said Caraway. “He is real and he is committed.”
“I am proud to have this endorsement,” said Shami. “Mayor Caraway is very much in touch with the communities I am trying to help by creating jobs and those who have been impacted most by the economic downturn.”
Councilmember and Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway serves City Council District 4 in Dallas.
Farouk Shami will debate his Democratic opponent tonight on KERA public television. Visit www.FaroukforGovernor.com for more information.
