Let's Get To Work For District 37
Here Is My Focus
I want to represent the incredible people of District 37. The hardworking and resilient men and women in our communities are the lifeline of this district. We need to protect and enhance state policies that promote fair, equitable, and sustainable opportunity for every Texan. We need innovative legislation that will help create new high-paying jobs that will make it easier for members of our community to live, work, and provide for their families. This means every person deserves access to healthcare, a living wage, a good education, and technical job training. This means people deserve access to affordable prescription drugs and health insurance, no matter their background.
