  The Texas AFL-CIO salutes the life of former Texas Democratic Party Chair Bob Slagle, a friend and supporter of Texas working families who died yesterday.


  “Bob Slagle believed in the biggest of political tents, always pursuing consensus to do the important things by uniting Texans rather than dividing them,” Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy said. 


  “Bob had the personal touch,” Levy said. “He cultivated every possible relationship with our membership, listened carefully, and advocated for working families across the state and nation. We will miss Bob’s smile, his graciousness, and his bedrock belief in a better Texas for all.”
