Key issues

  • Ensuring all Texans have equal opportunities and freedoms, regardless of race, age, sex,  religious beliefs, or sexual orientation  
  • Top-quality public education for all Texans from Pre-K to 12th grade and beyond.  Funding needs to stay within public schools, not school vouchers.  Additionally, we must find ways to increase educational budgets.  
  • Fighting for equal pay for women.  Equal work should mean equal pay
  • Access to high-quality and affordable health care for all Texans, especially children, the elderly and those with special needs
  • Access for women to reproductive healthcare, and abortion clinics if they choose to have an abortion, a right that should always be protected
  • Protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals across Texas
  • Helping local and new businesses grow by creating new, higher paying jobs for Texans 
  • Working with state and federal officials to improve our immigration system. Focus on strengthening border security, targeting criminals and deporting them.  
  • Creating a path to citizenship 
  • Increasing funds for state law enforcement to target and end Human Trafficking 
  • Increased access to high-speed internet for students across rural Texas
  • Protecting our natural resources, rivers, lakes and streams from pollution, agricultural run off and chemical spills.
  • Eliminating loop holes regarding Gravel Pits in unincorporated parts of the state.  We have to hold people accountable and protect our water ways.
