CREATING JOBS AND GROWING THE ECONOMY

Every family in this country deserves the opportunity to make a decent living, have a real chance to get ahead, and see their children get a first-class education that gives them more opportunities than those before them – that is the American Dream. Gina’s mother came to this country to work for that dream, and Gina, along with so many others, has defended that dream in uniform.

In Congress, Gina will make creating good paying jobs in Texas her number one priority - focusing on investing in small businesses and the economy to make sure Texas is at the forefront of job creation and innovation. Gina will protect and create the economic opportunities needed to ensure we have a strong middle class.

In Congress, Gina will work to:

  • Attract new industries and businesses to our state, while protecting the jobs that we have – creating sustainable job growth that reflects the future economic base for Texas.

  • Ensure our rural communities have access to reliable high-speed internet, because a widening digital divide means too many Texans can’t access critical services and opportunities.

  • Provide new and advanced skill training programs and forge public-private partnerships to provide a pipeline of talent that gives Texans the ability to learn new skills and create job opportunities here at home.

  • Guarantee decent wages and equal pay for equal work so hard-working Texans can support their families and get ahead.

  • Ensure all Texans have the opportunity for success while ensuring that corporations and the wealthiest among us pay their fair share in taxes.

  • Protect and foster small businesses in our communities by cutting red tape and providing incentives and tax relief for small and medium businesses that create jobs here and keep operations in the U.S.
