Core Values & Philosophy
I’ve dedicated my life to fighting for justice and freedom. As a criminal defense attorney for over a decade in Central Texas, I tirelessly fight to uphold our country’s most precious cornerstone, the Constitution, by defending Texans of all backgrounds and beliefs. I’m now ready to bring my passion, energy, and progressive values to Washington to ensure that the Government protects and provides for both the present and future generations.
Return Government to the People
Make the government work for you by removing big money’s corrupt influence on politics.
Clean Air & Water
Protect the environment by investing in renewable energy infrastructure, energizing our economy. Prioritize clean water for future generations.
Compassionate immigration policy that betters our economy without compromising safety.
Provide free college tuition, encourage career-ready programs, reform student loan system, and ensure that public schools work for our children.
Health Care for All
Universal health care is a fundamental human right that we can achieve by removing wasteful private profits from our healthcare system. The best option is Medicare-for-All.
Wealth Gap & Poverty
Reduce the wealth gap and end poverty for all working Americans.
Criminal Justice Reform
Reduce mass incarceration and legalize marijuana.
