It's Time To Put East Texas First
Jasper is my home. I was born and raised here. I’m the son of a pastor who grew up in the church playing the drums for our worship band. I love East Texas so much I chose to raise my family here. That’s why I’m deeply invested in the future of District 36.
Unfortunately, our leaders have us on the wrong track. For years both political parties have asked District 36 to sacrifice their interests for nothing in return. Our representatives have toed the line for the state and national parties while our towns withered and their populations dried up, our economies and education systems crumbled, and our children grew up without opportunities.
Nowhere was this made clearer than last year. Many of our neighbors in District 36 lost everything in Tropical Storm Imelda, but our leaders voted against disaster relief for their own constituents. This is unacceptable — and it’s one of the reasons I’m running for U.S. House.
It’s time to put our interests first. It’s time for us to have a true representative who will go to Washington, D.C. and bring funds, projects, and support back to District 36. It’s time to revitalize our economies and rebuild our schools.
It’s time for District 36 to realize its potential to be a powerhouse region.
As someone who works in the timber industry, I know the hard work it takes to provide for your family. That’s why I believe in putting fiscal responsibility first in government. As the youngest person ever elected to the Jasper City Council—who beat the odds as a write-in candidate—I voted to keep taxes down and fund services that improved the quality of life of my neighbors. I’ll bring this experience to Washington to pass responsible legislation that’s right for our district.
