Why are you running for office?
I am running for office because I am tired of the extremists setting the agenda for Texas. My opponent (who historically has voted with the Freedom Caucus 80% of the time) has not had an competitive opponent since 2008. When I realized this, I knew I had to run. I knew better so I have to do better.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
The two biggest issues facing my community are property taxes and lack of accessible healthcare. I plan on tackling both of those with my first priority of expanding medicaid in Texas.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
