The biggest impediment to voting, especially in the primaries, is informing the voters on the issues and motivating them to vote. I am for anything that will better inform the voters and encourage them to vote in a non-fraudulent manner. I am disgusted with the efforts of Empower Texas to discourage voting by educators.
I would support those things that would take violent criminals off the streets, reduce domestic violence, and educate owners of guns on the safe use of firearms.
The Texas constitution requires the state to provide free public education as the diffusion of knowledge is essential to our liberties and future prosperity. The state has not prioritized funding public schools and is in the bottom 20% of states in per student funding. I will vote to make educating our 5.3 million public school students a priority when elected. This in no way minimizes the value of private schools or home schools as alternatives.
Rapid urbanization of rural areas creates pressure on water resources, transportation, and infrastructure, and makes some residents fearful about the impact on their lives. I will work with local elected leaders, TCEQ and others to help protect and further the interests of District 73 constituents. If local leaders ask for limited legislative help, I will listen and balance their needs without unduly infringing on property rights.
Appropriate management of water resources is critical in our fast growth district and I will help to ensure we have the water we need. Market forces and current infrastructure should help keep air clean. Fracking has opened up huge reserves of natural gas which has kept prices low and leads to replacing dirtier coal fired plants with natural gas plants, creating cleaner air. We have more wind power than any state which helps keep air clean.
There will be many forces pulling upon legislators as they draw lines. I will be looking for lines that lead to good governance and encourage my fellow lawmakers to do the same.
I will represent all constituents of District 73 regardless of who votes for me and who does not.
