The failure to adequately invest in our pubic schools is one of the most critical issues facing our state today. The State Legislature cut more than $5 billion from our public schools and failed to fully restore the cuts. To ensure that our children start school ready to learn and succeed, we should invest in quality Pre-K programs. Investing in public education is the key to addressing the great wealth disparity in our state and improving our economy. I believe that everyone benefits when we have an educated populace and it is our responsibility to make sure that we invest in our public schools so that all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status or the zip code in which they live, receive access to a quality education.
The Rainy Day fund is not being used appropriately as we are treating it more like a saving account at the expense of our children. Our neighborhood schools are in dire need of funding, such funding is held hostage by the rainy day fund.

During the 85th legislative session, I served on the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence and the House Committee on County Affairs. I passed the language of 6 of our bills which were all signed into law by the Governor. I am running for re-election to the Texas House to continue to bring the voice of working-class families from our District to the Texas Legislature by working hard and across the aisle. My four priority issues are:
1) Public Education & College Affordability;
2) Women’s Issues: Rape Kit Backlog, Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault; and
3) Affirming and defending the civil rights of all persons regardless of legal status, sexual orientation
4) I-635 E Project/ Transportation Infrastructure
