Congressmen should not be allowed to participate in pay for play. It’s unethical; why do our representatives keep selling us out? #CorkerKickbacks #silky4congress #BlueWave2018

Silky Malik Announces Run for Congress in Texas’ 2nd Congressional District

HOUSTON, TX - Silky Malik announces her run for Congress in Texas’ 2nd Congressional District. If elected, she will be both the first woman and the first person of color to hold the position. The position is currently held by U.S. Representative Ted Poe (R), who is not seeking reelection.

“I am running because I believe the very essence of service has been forgotten by far too many of our elected representatives,” Silky said. “I want to work for, and with, the people of my district so they know their voice makes a difference in their government and their future.”

Silky’s major platforms include public funds for public schools, better access to affordable healthcare, protection of voter rights, and fair and simple tax reform.

Silky, a native Houstonian, depended on the free and reduced lunch program and medical assistance through the TX CHIPS program throughout her childhood until her graduation from the University of Houston. There, she earned bachelor's degrees in psychology and sociology before joining the workforce.

“I am truly a product of the American Dream, and am living proof that when this country works for everyone, we are all so much better and stronger for it,” Silky said.

Silky will be available for interviews any time Tuesday afternoon.
