Crime & Public Safety
Your government’s top responsibility is to provide public safety. Unfortunately, too many elected officials are caving to “woke” mobs, making our streets less safe and defunding our police. The results are predictable: increased crime in our communities.
Keeping our neighborhoods safe will always be a top priority of mine. As a longtime member of this community with three young children, it is imperative that we work to ensure the Cy-Fair community remains a safe and vibrant place to live, work, and raise a family.
During my time as Mayor of Jersey Village, I oversaw law enforcement priorities and provided them with the tools needed to do their job. Other cities across our country embarked on a crusade to “defund the police.” Those cities saw an unsurprising rise in crime and violence. Recognizing the urgent need for action, last legislative session our Republican leadership passed laws that penalize cities that “defund the police.” Unfortunately, our State Representative Jon Rosenthal sided with criminals and voted against these important public safety laws.
As your State Legislator, I will continue to support policies that prioritize public safety and take elected officials to task who support the mob over Texas families.
Texas is an economic engine of opportunity and prosperity. Our state’s economy will continue to grow only with an educated population. As a father with children in public schools, a school volunteer, and the husband and son of public school teachers, I understand the unique challenges facing our Texas school districts. I will support measures that address needed school funding and work hand in hand with school boards, teachers, and parents to help provide an excellent education for Texas children.
A new and insidious threat to our children is creeping into curriculums. It goes by different names but is most well known as “Critical Race Theory.” Proponents of this curriculum seek to redefine our nation as a systematically oppressive dystopia that pits people against each other along racial, ethnic, and gender lines.
Let me be clear: The United States of America is a noble nation that has sacrificed more than any other country in history in the pursuit of freedom and equality for people around the world. I will not stand by and allow our kids to be subjected to theories that undermine our national heritage and pit our diverse communities against each other. Again, when Representative Rosenthal had the opportunity to support legislation prohibiting racially divisive curriculums, he failed our Texas school children.
Strong Texas Businesses
Texas is a destination for businesses and families due to our pro-business environment. Our State must continue to embrace policies that encourage business investments and entrepreneurship. We must strive to keep regulation and taxes low in order to maintain a business-friendly environment that is the foundation of Texas’ economic prosperity.
My experience as mayor, working with businesses in the community and understanding their role, will serve me well in Austin. I will always work for the residents of House District 135 to encourage economic, regulatory, and taxation policy that supports and incentivizes growth in our community.
What sets our great state apart is our reliable adherence to time tested values. We must continue to embrace and hold steadfast to these Texas values. Our policies should continue to support the rights of the unborn, religious freedom, and second amendment rights. Texas must always remain a bastion of individual rights and personal freedom, and I will work tirelessly to ensure it does
