Congratulations Representative Joe Pickett!

Tuesday, Jan 7, 2014

Congratulations to Representative Joe Pickett for being named El Pasoan of the Year! We are happy for him to receive this honor but not surprised as he has been a champion of CASA for years. In his words "I’m also proud of my involvement with Child Protective Services. One of the biggest floor fights I had was in 2009 over a bill everybody thought was innocuous that was giving state employees credit time for volunteering for CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, because they couldn’t get enough volunteers to help. A state employee said, “I would if I could.”
Now, a state employee can have up to five hours a month that the state pays for volunteering for CASA."
Thank you to Representative Pickett for his ongoing support for CASA and our foster kids! (And head over to
