E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: Cell 713-899-4219

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I think it's important that our next state Representative is someone who is involved in our community and supports the Nonprofits. Not someone who is funded by outside interest and is controlled by those outside interest. We need to lower our Property Taxes, The State needs to do a better job funding education and we need to Secure Our Border
