I have lived in what is now Texas House District 91 for over a decade and in North Texas for more than 20 years.

I grew up as a preacher’s kid, participated in Boy Scouts, sports, and community access TV programs.

I’ve worked in many environments from Farming to Fast Food to Information Technology – and have tried to learn lessons from each one.

Along the way, I discovered that too often, people get stuck on labels and fail to seek to know a person for who they are. It’s time for us to ask “What do you think?”

Then listen.

Then ask “why”?

Until your representative takes the time and makes the effort to listen to you and ask “why,” you won’t have a truly functional democracy.

That’s why this campaign is not about me.

It’s about you.
