The survival and health of Public Education is the most critical issue over the next five years. Public education is basic infrastructure upon which both the economy and Democracy relies. I will fight for full funding by the state legislator with the goals of: 1) equity and quality regardless of zip code;2) universal quality pre-K; and 3) free tuition for state technical and post-secondary education to all qualified students.

Public school funding along with all other budgetary issues should become more transparent. Corporate property taxes should become more justly proportional. The move toward privatization and toward a corporate/business model should be reversed. Texas children in public schools in property poor districts should receive at least the same quality of education as those in property rich districts. Funds currently used for high stakes state mandated assessment should be diverted to address gaps in property poor districts.
Gun violence has turned our communities into war zones. I will fight for universal background checks and registration/licensing on both weapons and ammunition.
Health care is a vital part of government’s role to provide for the common good. I support universal health care, starting with the expansion of Medicaid but with the goal of universal, expanded and improved Medicare.
The top three issues to address with the rapid growth in population are: 1) water usage management; 2) air quality management; and 3) all infrastructure management and building, including transportation/roads and public education.
Immigration is integral to the economy of Texas and to the nation. Problems with immigration stem from our failure to institute policies which allow for speedy documentation, for work visas leading to citizenship, for family unification visas, and for compassionate asylum-seeking for refugees. The drug-related problems with border security stem from our neglect of the health issue of addiction and from our war on drugs. Legalization and regulation of marijuana would address much of this border issue.
My parents trained me from birth to love my neighbor as myself. When I was a little red-headed girl, I woke them up in the middle of the night to expain to them that I had figured out how government could make sure that everyone had a fair chance. I had been laying awake worrying because I had noticed that not all did. So by the time I was ten years old I realized that Good Government is how we turn loving our neighbor into action.
