A message from Governmental Relations: Legislative contact policy

The Office of Governmental Relations is responsible for communicating with all local, state, and federally elected officials and their respective staff regarding The University of Texas Health San Antonio’s current and future legislative funding and policy priorities.

To ensure appropriate, timely, and coordinated responses to all legislative inquiries, please forward for review all questions to:

The Office of Governmental Relations
E-mail: Mangelsdorf@uthscsa.edu
Phone: 210-567-0437

In addition, state law Texas Government Code, Title 5, Subtitle A, Chapter 556, and University policy prohibit employees from representing the University and expressing opinions for or against any legislative action on matters relating to official University business or use of any University resources, including stationery, fax machines, e-mail, and telephones, from conducting such activities.

Additionally, Texas Election Code, Title 15, Chapter 255 prohibits using public funds for political advertising and prohibits state employees from using the internal mail system to distribute political advertising. UT Health San Antonio’s legislative contact policy does not preclude an employee from expressing opinions for or against any legislative action as a private citizen.

Please direct all questions relating to this subject to the Office of Governmental Relations or call 210-567-0372.
