Why I'm Running

My mother came to the United States 40 years ago, because of her belief in the unique promise of America.

As a single-mother, she worked two jobs at times to ensure that my sister and I could achieve the opportunities that only this country could provide. 

I grew up knowing hard work, not circumstances to which we were born, should determine our trajectory. This promise is currently under threat, but I still believe we can be a country whose actions match our highest ideals.

That's a country equally focused on creating good job-paying jobs, while strengthening our middle class.

That's a country that is focused on providing quality healthcare to all, while still ensuring we lead the industrialized world in medical breakthroughs.

That's a country that embraces our immigrant history and our collective responsibility to ensure that the American Dream remains a possibility for all that dare to achieve it.  

That's a country that understands our exceptional role in this world, yet understands that our exceptionalism is rooted in the opportunities we afford for the most vulnerable amongst us to become our most promising. 

Our state and our country are worth fighting for. It's why I joined the military, it's why I served in Iraq, it's why I've dedicated my life to public service, and it's why I'm running to serve Texas' 23rd Congressional District.

I look forward to fighting alongside you,
