A Green New Deal for Texas
The Green New Deal is the best thing that could ever happen to Texas at the best time for it to happen. And when we Texans embrace the Green New Deal, we will become the best thing that’s ever happened to the United States. Texas can become the Salvation of our Nation. What an exciting destiny to behold.
Our Democracy is broken. It’s on life-support and we must work hard to revive it. Gerrymandering strangles our democracy. Travis Clardy has co-sponsored successful legislation that prevents communities from defending themselves from Toxic threats. Right now Corporate polluters have more legal standing when they invade our communities than we, the citizens who live in them, do.
We must be Anti-Racists
“An antiracist America can only be guaranteed if principled antiracists are in power, and then antiracist policies become the law of the land, and then antiracist ideas become the common sense of the people, and then the antiracist common sense of the people holds those antiracist leaders and policies accountable.”
Ibram X. Kendi, “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America
Equal MEANS Equal
Texas women have the right to make their own medical decisions, a right to equal pay, and a right to protection against gender-based discrimination throughout the state. When elected I will stand solidly with every legislator and elected official who champions these rights.
Defending Students and Teachers: Promoting Public Education
I’m honored and humbled by the fact that the Texans for Public Education list me as “friendly” towards public education. I personally benefited tremendously from the public education I received and will be second to none when it comes to championing Public Education when I’m elected State Representative for District 11.
Supporting DREAMERS and the Latinx Community
The government of the United States of America made a promise to over 800,000 Dreamers, who kept their part of the bargain. Now that the Trump Administration finds it politically expedient to throw them under the bus to score points with the GOP base is as unacceptable as it is cynical and immoral.
ALL Texans have a RIGHT to Health Care
I support the expansion of Medicaid. Single Payer or Medicare-For-All is the best and most affordable solution. I recognize that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) offered some much-needed improvements. Its central flaw was keeping insurance companies in the center of healthcare provision. Despite my misgivings, I oppose the Trump Administration’ undermining of the ACA. Adding an authentic public option to the ACA would swiftly move us towards Single Payer.
ALL Texans have a RIGHT to not live in fear from gun violence
The NRA gave me an F. I am proud of the F. It stands for Fearless. The NRA has no influence over me. Nothing will prevent me from doing my utmost to protect the people of District 11. Guided by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, I’m determined to bring sensible gun reform to the great state of Texas.
