Focusing On District 37
There are many issues and challenges that are important to District 37. They all need to be reviewed carefully to determine the best path forward. Below are some of the most important ones on my immediate radar.
Increasing teacher, counselor, and staff pay, security & safety, workforce development & technical training, and taking care of retired educators with a 13th check.
Implementing effective border security which requires technology, personnel, and infrastructure to prevent illegal crossings and address potential threats while balancing immigration enforcement with a fair asylum and legal entry system.
Investing in programs to create high paying opportunities and incentivizing entrepreneurs and small business owners to help fuel the local economy.
Ensuring access to sufficient and reliable power generation for all Texans, especially the Rio Grande Valley.
Increasing work force training and mental health services for veterans.
Working towards procuring important funding for much needed improvements to drainage and road infrastructure.
Increasing transparency in healthcare. Reducing the cost of prescription drugs and expanding access to Medicaid.
