An engineer by trade, I’m fed up with the two party system that fails to put American interests before their own, about a career politician known for her bad behavior, and about policies that seem to forget the consumers, voters, and constituents.

I’m calling on moderate Democrats and Republicans alike to rally with me to change the representation of District 18.  Help me remind Democrats that the voters won’t tolerate a 24-year incumbent that’s only passed a post office name change and three land transfers.   Help me bring moderate Republican ideas back to the discussion by saying they can be represented without approving of the entire Republican personality.

Please help me petition my name to be on the November ballot.  The district and our nation will be improved by new ideas, the humility of turn-over, and a pragmatic, Texan approach to problem solving.

Thank you.
