Better protections for clean air and water and for Texas’s parks and natural spaces

Fiscal responsibility and living within our means at all levels of government

Our police officers, firefighters, and other first responders

Our military and our veterans

Public health policies that align with the best research from our medical community

John Opposes


The increasing lack of civility and decency in politics at all levels


The Legislature artificially limiting the City of Dallas’s ability to set its own budget priorities for police, fire, streets, libraries, parks, and other city services


Using taxpayer dollars to fund private school vouchers


Efforts to deport DACA recipients


Divisive and unnecessary bills, such as the “bathroom bill”, which pit Texans against one another


Loopholes in our screening system that still allow convicted felons and domestic abusers to obtain guns without background checks


Efforts to eliminate our licensing and permitting system for carrying handguns


Political gerrymandering 


Discrimination in any form, based on race, ethnicity, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation or identity, or disability


Extremist politics that divide our nation and our state
