MANOR, TX, August 11, 2014 - The Kevin Ludlow for TX House 46 campaign has installed a third campaign billboard in Manor, TX just east of Old Kimbro Road on US290. The new billboard speaks directly to Spanish-speaking voters. It reads: "Viva, Viaje, Trabaje. Yo apoyo fronteras abiertas." The phrases translate to "Live, Travel, Work. I support open borders." The massive 14' x 48' lit advertisement leaves no confusion about Ludlow's position on immigration.

The response on social networking outlets has been overwhelmingly positive. Since its installation last week, people have been reaching out from all around the country. Ludlow states, "I want Spanish-speaking Texans to know that I will stand with them and address this issue without any political rhetoric. It's high time we stop blaming immigrants for the broken economic policies the two parties have left us with." The advertisement is one of very few political billboards in the Austin metro area and has the distinction of being the only one presented entirely in Spanish. According to 2010 census data, House district 46 is 47.2% Hispanic.

The campaign's first billboard is visible on IH35 northbound at US290. It reads: "Drug Reform, LGBT-equality, Civil Liberties", three of Ludlow's campaign platform issues. A second billboard in June read "Support Net-Neutrality". Ludlow is running an enthusiastically active race against a Democrat incumbent who has held office for over 19 years. Ludlow says, "We're working as hard as we can to show Texas that the two-party system is coming to an end; twenty years in office is far too long for any politician." Kevin Ludlow is the 2014 Libertarian candidate for the Texas House of Representatives in District 46. He holds a mathematics degree from the University of Texas, is a small business owner, a community leader, and a published author.
