Pro-Public Education – September 10 Campaign Update

This past week, I was honored to speak at the Texas Public Education Conference in Canton. I shared my message of why I got into this race: to put an end to our current irresponsible and ineffective representation in Austin. 


Friends and Neighbors,

This past week, I was honored to speak at the Texas Public Education Conference in Canton. I shared my message of why I got into this race: to put an end to our current irresponsible and ineffective representation in Austin. 

Our current rep. is West Texas funded and tea-party allegiant. That’s his entire strategy. So where does that leave us? Over six fruitless years, we know the answer – East Texas is a secondary to his personal agenda.

When I spoke at the Education Conference, I made the argument that our 29,000 school children, our active and retired teachers, our administrators, and our local economy are worthy of strong representation. 

And I am the candidate who will go to Austin and fight for equalized funding so we can control our local property tax hikes.

I will be a voice for our local active and retired teachers who need an advocate in Austin, not an adversary.

I will be a voice to protect and uplift our children. Our current state rep. opposed a bill last session that provided anti-victimization classes to our elementary and secondary students - on how to recognize and report sexual abuse. It enjoyed wide bi-partisan support (130-10) but our current state rep. failed us by failing our children.

It’s time to say goodbye to him. Friends, we can do better.

ENDORSEMENT

Being a vocal advocate of our public schools and our children is why I recently received the endorsement of Texas Parent PAC. They are one of the highest endorsements for pro-public education candidates. In their words, “Endorsed candidates reflect traditional mainstream American values that honor and support children and their families, quality public education, strong communities, unlimited opportunities, and maximum citizen participation in our democracy.”

I am honored by their endorsement, and I welcome their Guiding Principles into any discussion on public education. It is how we make a better Texas.
