Angie’s Priorities for Texas

The State of Texas, has made a commitment to ensure every child has access to a free and equitable public education system. That commitment has been under attack as the threat of using public money for private and parochial schools through vouchers seeks to privatize public education and widen the divide between the wealthy and the poor.

For far too long, teachers have been underpaid, funding reduced and too much emphasis has been placed on the outcomes of standardized testing as a measure of the success of students, teachers and school districts. I believe in providing equal opportunity for all children to be successful. As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

I think that it’s also vital that the state starts paying its fair share again. Their failure to pay a fair share of public education costs has, in part, been responsible for the increasing property tax burden on citizens. If we want to keep our public education system high quality, then we must commit to adequate funding.

  • End the focus on standardized testing
  • Invest in early childhood education
  • Work to ensure that adequate funding is provided to schools so that school districts can plan for the future
  • Make certain that the needs of economically disadvantaged children are understood and work toward solutions to meet those needs

Healthcare needs to be affordable for all Texans. Lack of adequate healthcare is not only a moral issue, it’s an economic issue.

I would support legislation that turns the focus to improving coverage for preventative care and increases health educationwhich would ultimately save the state, and citizens, from covering higher costs of emergency room visits and serious illness.  I would be in support of is expanding MedicaidI also want to work with physicians to figure out how to reduce our maternal mortality rate.

My district is not immune to the dangers of unaffordable healthcare coverage. 

It’s time that the Texas Legislator does some bipartisan work and we can start with Gun Safety Laws.

More than half of all Texans support stricter gun regulations and 81 percent say they would support requiring background checks for all gun purchases.

I support legislation that enacts universal criminal and mental health background checks as well as closing the ‘boyfriend loophole.’

Our environment should be one of our top concerns.

We must find ways to balance the preservation of our natural resources with the expansion of our population and economic growth. Texas’ exploding population places increasing demands on water availability and congestion heightens the challenge of emissions, impacting air pollution. Our future success depends on Texas becoming a leader in green energy.

Years ago, in Blue Ridge, we had an oil spill that ruined the environment and wildlife in the surrounding areas. We can do better than this. We need to make sure that Texas slingshots itself as a leader in solar and wind energy and find ways to accelerate plastic recycling.

Texas is well on its way to becoming the most populous state in the nation, anticipating another 10 million residents by 2036. Commuters already spend 54 hours a year on the roads, contributing to lost time, increased CO2 emissions and negatively impacting productivity, and air quality.

We are nearing a crisis mode with regard to traffic congestion. State road capacity is already behind the need, while the funding gap continues to grow.

It’s time to seek alternative funding sources and plan for mass transit to meet the future needs of the citizens of Texas. There is no time to waste!
