Providing a World-Class Education in Every Zip Code
Counties typically don’t have much purview over education in Texas, but I have worked hard to support education as a County Commissioner. That means working with organizations like Workforce Solutions Borderplex to identify areas where we can provide resources in support of things like training. That means providing training incentives to companies opening up shop in El Paso. That means supporting programs like Project Arriba that provide education and training to low-income individuals so that they can become nurses and health care professionals. It also means working with school districts to increase access to broadband for their students, as well as advocating on state and federal levels for more resources for our community. I have done and led in all of these areas, and wish to continue that work.
EFFECTIVE, STRONG AND FEARLESS LEADERSHIP
Not only do I believe in the Democratic Party’s platform, but over the past almost eleven years I have worked in public service and politics and have championed our party’s values. Whether it was serving as a Precinct Chair on our County Executive Committee, working as a consultant for the Texas Democratic Party, serving as an El Paso County delegate at numerous State Conventions, or as a Bernie Sanders delegate at our most recent National Convention, I have more experience than any other candidate in this race working on behalf of the Democratic Party. I spent nearly four years on the staff of former State Senator Jose Rodriguez, working every day to help move our state in the right direction, and of course, I am finishing my second term as a Democrat on the El Paso County Commissioners Court, representing Precinct 2. I have served as a strong, progressive voice during the past seven years, having effectively worked to create initiatives and policies that are in line with the Democratic Party’s Platform on a local level, as well as advocating for the same at the Texas State Legislature and at the US Congress, as well as with the Whitehouse.
Below are some examples of the work I have done that correlates with the Democratic Party Platform:
