Why I'm Running

My call to public service came from God’s plan for me and my family. It was God’s calling that led me to run for office and it is his call once again that brings me back. With His blessing I have the strength and vision to continue to serve our community. I learned a lot in my first year serving as your State Representative and I accomplished a lot. We passed pro-life legislation, strengthened the 2nd Amendment, cracked down on sanctuary cities and passed a conservative budget.

However, there is so much more to be done. I am fighting to fix our tax system by having the state pay for school taxes instead of runaway property taxes. I want to create the foundations of a better healthcare system to help Texans when Congress repeals Obamacare. I am going to keep fighting back against the leftist attacks on our religious freedoms and ensure that we are not admonished for our religious beliefs. I want Cypress and Tomball to continue to grow and recover especially after Hurricane Harvey. I will demand that that we have adequate infrastructure to deal with events like Harvey. If you choose to re-elect me, I will go to Austin and fight to make sure that the legislature helps rebuild our community.

I want to keep our community a place where family values come first, where neighbors take care of each other and people are proud to be American. I want to fulfill God’s plan for me by serving you faithfully and making a better community for all of us.
