What do you hope to accomplish in your term?
Brazoria County is growing at a rapid pace and with this growth comes challenges such as transportation and emergency services. I want to continue to encourage responsible growth while making sure we take a conservative approach to spending to ensure our citizens aren’t paying a penny more in taxes than necessary.

What makes you qualified to hold this office?
I have always said government is the biggest business we have and it needs to run as such. Being a business owner myself, I understand what it takes to make tough decisions with regard to personnel, budget or other issues we face and I have the experience necessary to be successful in that decision making process.

What are the biggest issues facing the county?
Certainly with the growth Brazoria County is facing, we will be faced with challenges in the areas of transportation and emergency services. I want to address these challenges and make necessary changes, but without sacrificing or losing sight of the Brazoria County I grew up in and love.

What do you hope to accomplish in your term?
I will focus on constituent services. Open another office in Pearland/Manvel area. The court meets twice a month in Angleton at 9am. Many can’t attend. My staff and I will be available the weekend prior to talk about the upcoming agenda. My vote is your voice. There is only one DPS office in Brazoria County. Population is over 350,000. Brazoria needs another office.

What makes you qualified to hold this office?
I have served as an election judge for Brazoria County. I served on the State Democratic Party Executive Committee. Worked with the DAV, DOD, USDS coordinating national and international events.

What are the biggest issues facing the county?
Precinct 2 is a fast growing community Infrastructure is needed in our roads, schools, and county services. We have to improve drainage for flood and hurricane preparedness. The 2020 census requires redistricting. I’m for common sense maps. ESD in areas not served by cities need boards to be appointed in a fair process not the current pick a pal system.
