It is with great thought and care that I am announcing my candidacy for Texas State House District 71.

In doing this it is my sincere hope to facilitate a conversation in the Big Country and rural Texas about the power of state government to change lives for the better and improve the rural situation.

In West Texas, we have the resource and the opportunity to lead the world in energy and innovation but we can’t do that without investment.

  • Investment in our schools to produce bright, thoughtful kids.
  • Investment in rural town and city infrastructure to promote trade and increase private interest.
  • Investment in water quality and health to ensure future generations can live here, healthy.
  • Investment in individuals to produce a skilled, potent labor force ready to face 21st century challenges.

We invest not out of obligation but rather because it’s the right thing to do.

I hope you’ll help me do the right thing.
