I believe education is key to family self sufficiency and economic prosperity. I will work with key stakeholders on solutions that improve opportunities for all students. I will advocate and explore policy solutions related to recruitment/retention of diverse faculty, decreasing the digital divide, promoting college access programs and guided pathways to college degrees, credit transfer and articulation policies, aligning data systems, and broad and inclusive financial aid policies.
I would support universal background checks on every gun sale and transfer within Texas, denying guns to people who have been convicted of a felony or domestic abuse, and requiring gun stores to do background checks on employees.
Increased funding to public and higher education, increased transportation & infrastructure funding, and increased funding in technology and technology infrastructure.
I would support using an approach similar to that of the state of Iowa. In Iowa, nonpartisan state staff draft the lines with a nonpartisan approach. The state creates a temporary committee that guides and advises state staff on certain redistricting matters when requested. Once complete, three public hearings on the proposed maps are conducted and a report is then submitted to the governing body. The staff then submits their final recommendation in the form of a bill to the governing body.
Yes. I do not believe a “one size fits all” approach allows counties the opportunity to create ordinances and utilize funding streams to help ensure responsible development and growth in unincorporated areas.
