Texas District 52 Representative James Talarico will address members of the Taylor Chamber of Commerce at a luncheon at noon Monday, Sept. 16, at Sirloin Stockade.

“It was an exciting legislative session and Rep. Talarico showed true leadership, especially on issues relating to our public schools,” Chamber President Tia Rae Stone said. “We look forward to hearing about the legislative session and what our representative is doing for Taylor.”

Representative James Talarico is a former non-profit leader and public school teacher elected in 2018 to serve House District 52 in the Texas House of Representatives. During the 86th Texas Legislature, he authored or jointly-authored 52 bills and served on the committees focused on public education and on juvenile justice and family issues.

He was born in Williamson County, where he attended Round Rock ISD schools and graduated from McNeil High School. Rep. Talarico earned degrees from The University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University. 

He taught middle school on the West Side of San Antonio before becoming Central Texas Executive Director for Reasoning Mind, a nonprofit dedicated to equipping classrooms with innovative technology. He currently serves as the youngest member of the Texas Legislature.

This luncheon is part of the Greater Taylor Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 focus on “Charting a Course for Success.” It is free to attend. Those wishing to eat should pay $10 at the door and arrive around 11:45 a.m. to ensure they have time to get their lunch prior to the start of the meeting.
