Today I proposed a law limiting bail for criminals who repeatedly assault law enforcement officers. A DPS officer was killed by such a criminal out of jail on $15,500 bail.

Dan Patrick scolded TRS-Care yesterday for considering higher premiums for retired teacher healthcare. He deliberately concealed the fact that the , which he controls, refused to fully fund the plan. Texas education professionals must never trust Dan Patrick.

When an incumbent running for re-election refuses to say anything other than “my record speaks for itself”, like Dan Patrick has, it’s safe to conclude they will do the same in the second term as they did in the first if they win…

Texas ranks dead last in percentage of adults with health insurance. We must elect individuals this November who will make equal access to healthcare their top priority. Things have to change.

Of the 19 Empower Texans House candidates still on the ballot, 9 of 19 have received 50% or more of their total campaign dollars from ET World. Mayes Middleton is the highest, but it's mostly his money. Deanna Metzger is over 80% ET, Mike Lang is 75%+, Stickland is 70%+

Today, TEA will label ISDs with a single letter grade rating of A to F. A single test, on one single day is not a true representation of the education we provide the students in SISD. Today, I give every teacher in every school in SISD an “A” letter grade!

Time for an Empower Texans candidate (ETs) snapshot. ETs are on the ballot as Republicans, but I separate them due to donor mix. What will follow is a snapshot of the 19 ET endorsed House candidates still on the ballot (23 endorsed / funded ETs are out).

Public education is what drove me into politics. It is why I joined the and decided to run for Lt. Governor. As Lt Governor, I will kill the "A - F" grading system and get back into the business of helping our schools become the best in the nation.

Let's see, what else. - I recently block walked for a Republican member of the . She's pro-choice, pro-public schools, pro-science, pro-ethics/anti-corruption. - Before Trump got the nomination, I once told a friend that maybe he wouldn't be so bad (I was wrong as fuck).

This is an injustice to the victims & to our state. A school administrator who sexually assaults boys should face mandatory jail time. I’ll look into changing the law.

1. I read the PA Grand Jury report on priest sex abuse. It is distressing & disgusting. The PA Grand Jury made four recommendations. I will be researching TX law to see if the reforms apply to TX. At least one PA priest was assigned to Amarillo & reoffend. Shameful.
