As a vital staff member to elected officials and civil rights leaders on both sides of the aisle. I have worked with the State of Texas and Federal elected officials regarding grant funding for various organizations.
There are many factors in the areas of the budget, and that is something I am not able to make a decision without knowing exactly why and how those budget distributed. Increased or decreased any amount to any department is something that needs further examination. However, I would like to look into substance abuse/mental health programs and see where we can give them the best resources to help the community.
With an estimated 80 people moving into Collin County each day, we need to be working on expanding our infrastructure to stay ahead of this growth to help reduce traffic congestion. We must invest in our infrastructure.
As a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity I have seen the highs of getting almost a dozen homeless families into safe shelters. This has impressed upon me the need to help the less fortunate among us. With Texas Workforce Commission I helped give a hand up to those in need of jobs. I will work closely with organization to provide the resources that they will need to help the community.
With an estimated 80 people moving into Collin County each day, our infrastructure need to be examine so we can stay ahead of the growth. It is time that we need to look into our public transportation and how we can better the services for our community.
We will need to stay on top of the state and federal grant funding for emergency management and public health preparedness programs. As well as designs and conducts exercises and drills to improve emergency preparedness planning and response.
Cost of living in our county is getting higher and higher, as more people are moving into town we need to focus on helping our native with an affordable housing options. We also need to start thinking about investing in our own county hospital so we can take care of our local populist.
