I am proud to announce today, October 8, 2019, that I will be seeking reelection as your State Representative for Texas House District 114!
When I ran for this office last election cycle, I focused my campaign on priorities that are critical for our future: investing in our public schools, supporting our local governments and first responders, and helping restore a commitment to decency and problem-solving in government.
In my first session as your representative, I’ve done my best to put those words into action.
We had a major victory for our public education in House Bill 3, which provides significant new funding for our students and teachers.
We were also able to achieve an 11-cent reduction in school district property tax rates, which will help make home ownership more affordable and will help our city continue to grow and thrive.
I was also proud to author and pass bills that better supported our first responders – who put their lives on the line to protect us every day.
Still, there is still plenty of work to be done – in strengthening our commitment to public education, making our colleges and universities second to none, improving our health care system, and passing critical public safety measures.
And, as a nation, we continue to face a politics full of destructive rhetoric and efforts to undermine our basic civic values.
Now is not the time to back away from our challenges. I am ready to go back to Austin next session and continue being part of the solution. I want to do my part to contribute to a better politics for the country we love, and to help make Texas the greatest state we can be.
I hope you will allow me to serve you again in 2021. I’d be honored to have your support.
