PRINCIPLES NOT POLITICS
I am a lifelong Texan, and grew up in Clear Lake. I moved to Pearland just after marrying my wife, Christine, where 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 top-rate education.
For the past 7 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 Primary Insurances, which means I have been able to provide top-tier care, but only to people who have several thousands of dollars a month in disposable income to support their loved ones in their times of need. For those who could not afford my services (I estimate this is about 90% of the people who have reached out to me over the years), I would refer to other businesses that could bill Medicare/Medicaid. I am intimately aware of the limitations of these programs and how woefully underfunded they are, as well as how the current Leg's failure to expand Medicaid has directly impacted needy families in my community.
I am running for State Representative in District 29 because we deserve Representatives who will defend and preserve our Democracy.
