PRINCIPLES NOT POLITICS
I am a lifelong Texan, and grew up in Clear Lake. I moved to Pearland just after marrying my wife, Christine. We were looking for a place to set down roots and raise our family. In Pearland, we found a vibrant and diverse community full of passionate and engaged people facing new challenges and opportunities. We now have a 1 year old son, Jude, and I couldn’t be happier to be raising him here, where he will have friends from every possible background and a school system preparing him for the world.
For the past seven years, I have been the Director of Operations for our Home Health Agency, which supports people facing independence and mobility problems, due to age or disability. We are a private-pay service not covered by most health insurances, which means I have been able to provide top-tier care, but only to people who have several thousands of dollars a month extra in the bank to support their loved ones in their time of need. For those that can't afford it (or about 90% of those who reach out), I refer them to providers that accept Medicare and Medicaid. I know first hand just how underfunded these programs are and how Austin's failure to expand Medicaid has directly impacted hard working families in our community.
I am running for State Representative in District 29 because we deserve a Representative who fights for our community instead of playing political games.
