Fighting every day for you and your family
EducationFighting for our futureI believe our schools should be fully funded and that we should empower our teachers with the resources they need for young Texans to succeed. From pre-K through college, education must made be a priority.
Health CareEverybody deserves access to affordable medical attention.I believe Texas values taking care of our sick and elderly. This means we must expand Medicaid and ensure that Medicaid programs are fully funded.
Jobs & the EconomyEnsuring access to good pay and benefitsI believe Texans want to work hard for a fair pay. I support raising the minimum wage, strengthening our labor laws, and securing the right to unionize.
EnvironmentLet's keep Texas beautifulAs a San Antonio City councilman, I promoted innovative clean air policies that made a difference in people’s daily lives, including our successful fight for clean air municipal vehicles such as natural gas-running garbage trucks and hybrid city vehicles. I will continue to fight for common sense efforts to reduce emissions and improve our air quality.
TransportationLet's get Texas moving!The motor fuel tax must be returned to funding our highway system and TxDOT should focus on their mission of building and maintaining the best roads in America. In addition, a local option to improve our roads should be considered so communities can move forward with much needed projects where the state is unable to participate.
EqualityDiscrimination has no place in TexasI believe all Texans deserve to be treated equally, regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, religion, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
