I am excited to announce my candidacy to serve as your next State Representative. Far too many of the challenges of yesterday appear to remain the challenges of tomorrow. Today, our rents are higher, groceries and gas are more expensive, and our health insurance costs more but covers less. Most importantly, working class incomes are not increasing with current prices and costs. Despite these issues, Texans have not seen the response they deserve from our state government.
You deserve a Representative that works as hard as you do. Working class families can no longer afford to not have their voices heard. The time for finger pointing and blame shifting about the crises of the last two years has passed. It is time to focus on what is next and how together we move our state forward. It is time for big ideas, not small minds. It is time for repairing bridges, not building walls. It is time for prosperity, not simply recovery.
As your State Representative, I will work to ensure educational equity for all students because a student’s zip code should never be an indicator of how far they go or how much they achieve. I will work to ensure Texas educators are better paid, better supported, and their tenure better rewarded. I will work to expand access to healthcare and decrease the number of uninsured Texans. I will work to ensure our infrastructure is growing and improving as quickly as our cities are expanding. Finally, I will work to protect Texans sacred right to vote, including working to repeal the unwarranted and unfounded laws that make it harder for Texans to cast their ballot and have their voice heard.
I ask for your support and your vote!
How can you help?
This truly is a grassroots effort, and I am relying on my friends, family, neighbors, and the greater San Antonino community to begin this movement. Here are three easy ways you can help.
1. Donate If you are able, please show your support with a donation. There are many costs associated with connecting to the community and most importantly, getting out the vote.
2. Join the Team Sign up to volunteer. Connecting with all our neighbors is going to take a team effort. Join me as I walk the district.
3. Host a Meet and Greet Sign up to host a gathering. Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and/or community group for a meet and greet. I want to hear from you, and this is a great way to connect on our shared vision for what is next for Texas.
