National Defense

Decriminalization of Marijuana

Coal

“Understanding that coal power is not only a job source for many Americans but a significant pollutant, I would like to see alternative forms of energy used. Fort Bend / Brazoria County is both home to nuclear and coal power plants - any move away from coal should come with training the current coal employees to nuclear positions. We shouldn’t turn our back on coal-related employees.”

Obamacare

“We need healthcare reform, but The Affordable Care Act was not and is not the answer.”
