District 25 is one of the most rapidly growing areas of the State. We need a school finance bill that increases state funding for education by a significant amount so school districts can reduce property taxes. Our public education system is critical to ensure that our community thrives. I will support adopting best practices in the classroom and increases in teacher pay.
District 25 has some of the most beautiful land in Texas. The rights of property owners who are fortunate enough to own property in this District, and all property owners in Texas, need to be protected.
We need jobs and businesses to support our growth. Responsible government and regulatory certainty are essential to allow small and large businesses and the people who work with, and for them, to thrive. I want to ensure that Texas government stays focused on what will improve the quality of life for all Texans.
Having been raised in the strong values of our military, I want to do everything possible to make sure that our military and our veterans have our full support. We need to do more to make sure that our military members are able to return to this country with everything they need to pursue the freedom and happiness that they fought so hard to preserve for us all.
There is a constitutional right to own guns that is critical to our nation's freedom from tyranny. With that right comes responsibility that all true Texans will willingly accept.
We need to plan for and protect our communities from the effects of floods and droughts. We must work with our local, state, and regional planning authorities to ensure that our infrastructure provides the backbones of society that are essential to our safety and economic prosperity.
