There’s a clear connection between education and a better future. Education gave me opportunity, which is why all Texans should have a shot at a world-class education. Our kids deserve improved schools, reduced class sizes, fewer standardized tests and the best trained, best paid, most qualified teachers in the world. They also deserve a shot at the college of their choice. The more education our kids have, the better the job they can get. An investment in education is really an investment in jobs and a strong economy.
There are some parts of this district that, even today, do not have access to running water or proper sewage services. I will continue to help people, regardless of where they live and ensure they have access to basic services that most of us take for granted. I also believe that building better infrastructure is good for our long-term economic health. I will continue to be a strong proponent for small businesses- the engines of economic growth in our communities. I will fight to keep existing jobs and attract new ones to Texas.
We owe a great debt to the men and women who defend and have defended our country. We must make sure that we are supporting local military families and veterans, and we need to guarantee that they will receive quick and high-quality care at VA clinics. We also need to increase funding for programs that provide aid for wounded veterans, and support programs that help these men and women find jobs once they get home. As the son of a World War II veteran, I take these issues very personally, and as a former member of the House Armed Services committee, I am proud of my record as a champion for the military.
I believe accessible, affordable, high quality health care is right-not a privilege. Texans should have the security that comes with good health care, and that no one should go broke because they get sick or have to choose between taking their child to a doctor and paying rent. Our State is at a turning point when it comes to health care. The decisions we make today will impact future generations to come.
Working together, we will make Texas a safer, cleaner, more energy efficient state. I look forward to continuing our work to make our water and air cleaner, our parks more accessible, all while responsibly utilizing our God-given natural resources.
