Julie Oliver running for Congress

Thursday, September 21, 2017 by Jack Craver

Julie Oliver, the executive at St. David’s HealthCare who was controversially appointed by City Council to the Central Health Board of Directors in June, is gearing up a run for Congress against incumbent Rep. Roger Williams, a Republican who is in the middle of his third term representing the 25th Congressional District. The 25th district, which stretches from just north of San Marcos to just south of Fort Worth and snakes through parts of Austin, is heavily Republican and is unlikely to be a competitive race. Granted, Oliver’s website makes the case that no challenge is too big for the health care executive: “Born and raised in Texas, Julie is a pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps kind of gal. Her story is one of comebacks.”
