I want to first thank all of my family and friends for their support throughout this amazing journey; without your words of encouragement and strong belief in my efforts none of this could have been done. I want to send a special thank you to my Hubby for being my rock. Throughout it all he has been my number one fan, an amazing partner and a phenomenal father to our girls. Although the outcome was not ideal, it does show a path for success in the future in this district. In 2016 the Democrat in the race received 39% of the vote, our team in a midterm election nonetheless, attained 45% - if that doesn't speak to change, I don't know what will. I'm so proud of all the hard work from our team, I'm honored to have been on this ballot and I am very grateful for everyone who voted for me.
The groundwork has been set for this district and now we look on to 2020.
It is critical for us to stay engaged in the process throughout this upcoming legislative session. I will be closely monitoring the Texas legislature from the beginning in January to the end of the session in May. If you would like to keep informed on what is going on in your legislature, please visit my “Get Involved” page and request to receive my legislative updates. Those updates will be brief information about (good and bad) bills, alerts when major votes are coming up and information for you on how to let your opinions known if you wish.
Once again, it was a true honor for myself and my family to be part of this amazing journey. I look forward to working with you in the future and making our great state one where education, healthcare, and people are valued.
