As a landlord, I had to evict one tenant and obtain a judgment against another landlord.
As the State Manager for Alliant National Title, I am responsible for the financial performance for the state. I have the utmost faith and trust in our employees and led them to a record year in 2013.
Ronald Reagan because he was able to communicate a Conservative message to the country in a way that inspired the average American.
The voters of Irving and Grand Prairie deserve to have a Representative they can trust in Austin. A Representative who has a proven track record of legislating the way they campaign. Voters deserve a Representative who has proven to be accessible to the citizens of the district, and they deserve a Representative who truly understands we are to represent the entire district and not special interests. Voters deserve a Representative who is pro-active in reaching out to the community at large and not just political donors. In short, the voters in Irving and Grand Prairie deserve to have their voice heard by someone who understands what it means to truly represent "We the People".
Voters should choose me over my opponent because I can best do what I outlined above. I have a track record of understanding the needs and wants of the entire district not just special interest groups. I am the one candidate who has proven I can and will do the grassroots outreach required to properly represent this district. My opponent supports Obama-style educate schemes like Common Core. I oppose them. My opponent opposes common-sense alternative education methods such as public charter schools. I support them. My opponent supports late-term abortions, and I am pro-life. My opponent has stated we need more government spending. I disagree. These are some of the fundamental differences we have and I don't believe her values align with the citizens of Irving and Grand Prairie.
The State's greatest challenge is that we must keep up with the population growth that is stretching our state resources to their limits. Population growth is the primary driver of all of the challenges facing the State. The list is seemingly endless: Education, Health Care, Electricity Capacity, Higher Education, Water, Transportation, the Environment, the Criminal Justice System, and the list continues to grow. But, the root cause of all of these challenges is population growth. It isn't going to stop, so we as a state must be prepared for the future and plan long term solutions to these problems.

Long term solutions require leadership. Most politicians simply want to do a band-aid fix and move to the next legislative cycle. Meanwhile, the problems get bigger and bigger until they become completely unmanageable. I will provide that leadership for House District 105 by putting forth common sense solutions such as removing unfunded mandates from the education system that will allow local districts to reduce their costs as an example. Securing our border is another example. Sadly the federal government has been derelict in its duty. I applaud Governor Perry’s efforts to secure the border using state resources, but even as he said, that’s not a permanent solution. In summary, we must be prepared to deal with population growth in all aspects of state government.
The State Budget is more than 1100 pages. There are plenty of areas to reduce spending. The 82nd Legislature was forced to make cuts and these reductions resulted in a significant budget surplus in the 83rd, along with a much improved economy, which almost completely restored any funding cuts from the prior session. However, government spending in Texas has far outpaced population growth and inflation, and yet the state still has funding "issues" with public education, transportation, and elsewhere. Why is that? It is because the State Budget is predicated on a "continuous growth" model that was proven false in the 82nd Legislature. The 82nd proved that cuts could be made that were not catastrophic despite adjustments that had to be made throughout the state.

I am a strong advocate of zero-based budgeting which means that each government agency must present an annual budget showing what they actually need. The current process basically assumes an automatic annual increase to each area of the budget because of population growth. If those increases were needed along the population growth argument, then why has the state budget grown so much faster than population growth? The answer lies in the economic success of the State and the fact that revenues have risen must faster than population growth. One solution would be to give these increases above population growth back to the taxpayer where it came from in the first place.

As a proponent of zero-based budgeting, I also realize how difficult this would be to do for the entire state government every two years. The solution to this problem is to have this style of budgeting performed for any agency up for "Sunset" review during the legislative session. This would limit the number of agencies reviewed in this manner to roughly 1/3 during a legislative session. This is a common sense approach to a complex problem.
The business climate in Texas is a primary driver of the tremendous growth in our state. If we wish to continue with this business climate, we must push back against federal regulations that threaten our manufacturing, refining, and oil and gas industries. We must also avoid creating unreasonable, unfunded mandates on our business owners who create the jobs that fuel the growth of the state.
Medicaid is the largest area of the safety net for Texas' poor and working poor. Medicaid spending was only $2BB in 1987 and yet now exceeds $20BB per year. This number continues to climb as more and more Texans are added to these rolls. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is expected to increase this amount to more than $45BB if Texas accepts the new terms of Medicaid expansion. This is simply not sustainable. As Medicaid coverage continues to become a larger and larger portion of the Texas budget, other areas of the budget are going to be put at risk as legislators try and balance the budget. That said, the State of Texas has very little flexibility in administering this program. The lack of flexibility is a tremendous disadvantage for the State. As such, the State should continue its efforts to pursue block grants from Congress so that the state can administer the program more efficiently. Block grants would allow the state to allocate healthcare dollars directly to the local markets without interference from the federal government. This would result in significant cost savings while putting healthcare dollars to work in the most needed areas.
Spending on mental healthcare is part of the solution to reducing the costs of the criminal justice portion of the budget. This is done by reducing the recidivism rate and increasing treatment for those that would otherwise be a continuing part of the criminal justice system. I applaud the actions of the 83rd Legislature for moving additional state resources into this area.
The disaster that occurred in West is a tragedy that received limited media coverage nationally because of the Boston Marathon bombings. The challenge in dealing with a catastrophe such as West is that we have many dangerous industries here in Texas. The fertilizer business is a dangerous business, as is oil and gas exploration and delivery, refinery and chemical operations, and even many areas of heavy manufacturing. The lost of life is tragic in work place accidents and we must remain vigilant in enforcement of existing regulations and compliance with regulations, but we do not need to create new regulations for isolated incidents.
Universities have been rewarded for increasing enrollment while graduation rates have fallen below 60%. Meanwhile tuition rates have skyrocketed putting a college education out of the reach of most middle class families. Colleges and universities should be rewarded for graduating quality graduates in their degree fields.
As a strong supporter of public education I believe the highest measure of accountability is the high school graduation rate. This is one metric that should apply for all school districts. As with any accountability system, we will have to get feedback over time before making the determination that the system is working.
I have been, and will continue to be, a strong supporter of our public education system. My three children attend public schools, and I would never make a decision that would negatively affect public schools. I view investments in the public education system as an investment in the long term infrastructure of our state. Currently the section of the Texas budget allocated to public education is 40% of the general revenue of the state. Should the court ultimately rule that an overhaul of the system of public financing is needed, I will evaluate the final court decision to determine which areas are problematic for the court and I will focus on solving the specific issues raised by the court.
The question does not include a very significant area for savings, and that is a zero based budget for this agency. This is one of the largest agencies in the state that has continued to grow. This is the first thing to do before considering any additional taxes or fees. Toll roads will still be needed, but they should be done the way the old "Turnpike" was done. Once the toll road is paid for, it should become a public road. That being said, a large part of the solution is to stop diverting transportation funds to "non-transportation" areas of the budget. Those areas of the budget should be funded from general revenue.
This is an area where science should be used to the fullest extent possible. If DNA evidence is available and technological advances will allow testing of the DNA, then the state should use every effort possible to analyze the DNA.
Yes
I am a strong supporter of the existing laws against any and all illegal drug use.
No
Government transparency is an absolute must, and legislation increasing transparency will be supported.
No, this should not be done because each community is different in their approach to gas and oil drilling. For example, there is a very big difference in rural areas of West and East Texas and the metropolitan areas of Dallas and Houston. This is best left to local jurisdictions. However, local laws should not unreasonably restrict a mineral owner's ability to reach the minerals. This is a delicate balance that the Railroad Commission must deal with every day.
Short-term or "payday" loans serve a large market of Texans who have no access to credit or do not have traditional banking relationships. Many payday borrowers have applied for loans at traditional banks and are rejected which leaves them with very few choices. Regulations in other states have driven these lenders out of those states, which leaves their customer base with no legitimate way to borrow money.

Public Interest Lawyer
I graduated from Irving’s Nimitz High School with honors in 1988. I received an undergraduate degree (B.A. in political science) from the College of Charleston and graduated magna cum laude in 1993. I graduated and received my law degree (J.D.) from The University of Texas School of Law in 1997.
Currently, I serve on the Dallas Bar Association’s Pro Bono Activities Committee, which works to facilitate delivery of pro bono legal services to low income and disadvantaged people in the community. I am also a member of several community-based groups and charitable organizations -- including the Texas Organizing Project (TOP), the Irving-Carrollton Branch of the NAACP, the Dallas Bar Foundation, and the Texas Bar Foundation. Among other things, TOP and the NAACP promote community education and civic engagement, and the Dallas Bar and Texas Bar Foundations promote equal justice under the law and delivery of legal services to the poor. I am also a member of Calvary Church in Irving.
In 2013, along with my co-chair, I received the Dallas Bar Association’s (DBA’s) Jo Anna Moreland Outstanding Committee Chair Award for my work on the DBA’s Pro Bono Activities Committee. I served on the City of Irving’s Parks and Recreation Board (2011-13), the City of Irving’s Advisory Committee on Disabilities (2010-12), and have served as both an alternate election judge (2010) and election judge (2012).
This is the first time my name has appeared on a ballot in a general election. I have never been a politician, though I have spent several years in different positions representing the community. In 2010, I became a Precinct Chair. In 2010 and 2011, the Irving City Council appointed me to two committees: the Irving Advisory Committee on Disabilities and the Irving Parks and Recreation Board, where I served for two years. In those roles, I met with city staff and invited guests, received reports, made recommendations and voted on matters placed before each committee.

No, though I have paid minor traffic or parking tickets.
I underwent uncontested family court proceedings and a personal bankruptcy that concluded fourteen years ago. After my divorce from my children’s father, I was a single mom, working full-time and raising 4 kids – all of whom were aged 6 or under. I retained and continued making payments on much of my debt, including debts for housing, transportation, and student loans. I am proud that I have now rebuilt my credit, and I have purchased and refinanced my current home.
I played a key role in a corporate reorganization at my current employer, Disability Rights Texas. The organization is a nonprofit public interest law firm that provides civil legal services to Texans with disabilities. As co-chair of a ten-person pilot team meant to test new ways to structure our services, I selected the team’s staff and co-managed the year-long project while continuing to perform my other job duties. At the conclusion of the pilot, our Board of Directors and our executive management team adopted and implemented our recommendations. Ultimately, the reorganization allowed us to improve the legal services we provide clients and to improve employee training and morale – all within budget. This, in turn, helps us be better advocates for our clients and helps our community as a whole.

Currently, I supervise a 9 member team that provides legal services across the state to Texans with disabilities. For many years, both during and prior to my current job, my peers have given me the highest possible rating for legal abilities and ethical standards (known as an AV rating) for this work, and I have been named multiple times on Texas Monthly’s “Super Lawyer” list and on The Best Lawyers in America List.
I most admire Sarah T. Hughes, who broke many barriers for women and who spent a lifetime in public service on behalf of her community. Her image is well known, captured in the famous picture aboard Air Force One, where she swore in Lyndon B. Johnson as President after the assassination of President Kennedy.

After working first as a teacher and a police officer, she worked for many decades as a Dallas-area lawyer, State Representative, and judge. She became Texas’s first female state district judge in 1935 and Texas’s first female U.S. District Judge in 1961, at the age of 65. I admire her because she was a hard-working public servant throughout her lifetime who never let her gender or her age hold her back from serving her community in a positive way.
I’m running to fight for the people of my community. I’m not a politician, and I’ve never run for public office before. I believe special interest groups, wealthy corporations, and well-connected lobbyists already have enough influence, and I believe our families need someone fighting for them.

I’m a working mom that loves my community and the people in it, and I’m committed to public service. I grew up here and raised my own family here, and I’ve represented people here for many years, fighting for their interests. Finding real solutions to our problems isn’t, and shouldn’t be, a partisan issue. I will work with anyone to fix our problems and will always stand up to anyone who gets in the way of doing what’s right for the people in our community. I want all of us, including our kids and our grandkids, to have access to the American dream -- where hard work and commitment carry you as far as your efforts can take you, no matter what economic circumstances you come from. Our decisions and our policies need to encourage this access, not get in its way.

To hear more from me directly, you can also see my campaign video at http://vimeo.com/102847782.
Voters should choose me because actions speak louder than words. With my opponent, both his words and his actions show that he’s wrong for our people and wrong for our future.

His words reveal his true focus: politics, not people. For months, he’s said “[t]his race is about keeping this district in the Republican column.” (Quote from his website, and current through at least the time these answers were turned in). Is that what we really need? More partisanship, more division, and more insiders protecting their own? You and I know better. His actions are even worse, and they speak even more loudly, telling us that we simply can’t afford to risk putting him back in office once again. When he was there before, he voted to cut billions in public education funding, which had serious consequences for our local schools. He also cut funding for family planning and women’s health services and voted against regulations on payday lenders.

The stakes are too high to put him in office again. Our families, and our kids, can’t afford to let him make the same mistakes twice. We need solutions, not more politics or more politicians. We have enough gridlock, and we need problem solvers. I’ve spent a career putting people first, and I’m heading to Austin as an outsider with an open mind, a committed heart, and an ability to work with people from both parties to find solutions to the challenges facing our state. It would be my honor to represent the people of District 105, and I ask for their vote on Nov. 4.
Texas has a number of important challenges, but three that are important to me are education, job creation, and healthcare. We need to do all we can to ensure that Texas families have access to all three. I’m a mother of four who worked through college and law school to support my family, and now, my two oldest are in college, with the youngest two not far behind. I want to make sure that every Texas family has the opportunity to work hard, to play by the rules, and to get ahead, no matter where they start. In my work, I push each day to break down barriers for my clients and to ensure access and opportunity for all. I intend to do that in the Legislature as well and will support policies that will encourage our long-term success – for our people, for our families, and for Texas.
Rather than simply increasing spending and throwing more money at our current problems, I will focus on looking for ways to make our current spending more effective and efficient. I support spending more for public education and would invest in full day pre-K for our students by using a portion of the funds in the Rainy Day Fund. I think strengthening our kids’ chances for success in public schools makes good long-term sense not only for our families but also our businesses and our communities.
I would strengthen our infrastructure and reduce the risk of workplace deaths. A strong Texas infrastructure that can support a vibrant and growing economy is the best promotion for our state. Our schools and colleges should be able to produce a skilled workforce; our highways, roads and transit systems should be able to keep that workforce moving, our natural resources like water should be secured for generations to come, and our workers should be no more likely to die on the job than in other parts of the country – a statistic in which Texas unfortunately leads the country. (See James Gordon’s “On the Job, Texas Most Dangerous” story in the Dallas Morning News on 8/16/2014).
There are often Texas-sized holes in our safety nets that end up costing us more money to address in the end. We should work to divert folks from expensive emergency rooms to primary care health providers when appropriate, keep individuals with mental illness and addiction from going in and out of jail and instead to treatment programs, and connect those in need with the services that are currently available.
I'm thankful that the Legislature finally stepped up to better address the need for mental health resources in our state. We should promote development and utilization of additional community resources while decreasing our reliance on expensive, inefficient, and often unsafe institutions. We should also focus on the growing mental health needs of children and veterans.
I would ensure that people are aware of the dangerous chemicals that are in our community so that appropriate steps can be developed to deal with the dangers in our own backyards. I also support smarter regulation and oversight and would look for opportunities to improve current regulations by (1) re-examining existing laws regarding fire and building safety codes and (2) considering various siting restrictions to more effectively control the risks associated with placing facilities that contain large amounts of ammonium nitrate and other hazardous chemicals near homes, schools, businesses, and health care facilities.
I would like to do three things: (1) encourage more enrollment by promoting lower costs and better financial aid, (2) strengthen community college’s abilities to transition students to 4 year degree programs or vocational schools after graduation, and (3) support emerging research universities like UT Arlington and UT Dallas to enable them to become Tier 1 universities.
I will listen to other parents and educators in my district and will work with state officials to ensure that our accountability system delivers on its promises. Educators should be able to focus on teaching their curriculum, not administering tests. Testing isn't a one-size-fits-all solution and should be only one of many diagnostic tools used to assess our education system.
We must first fully restore the cuts to public education and keep pace with growth by using the Rainy Day Fund and by ending the permanent deficit in the school finance fund. Overall, we must find a reliable, equitable source of funding that meets the needs of the state's population.
I would recommend stopping any diversions from the gas tax that are not being spent on transportation-related needs, with the exception of funds currently going to public education. I also recommend using additional funds from the Rainy Day Fund and would explore more comprehensive, long-term solutions after obtaining more input from the people in my community.
The biggest weakness in our criminal justice system – and especially in death penalty cases – involve situations where innocent people are wrongfully convicted. I support many of the recommendations suggested by the bipartisan review committee in their report, but the main priority should be to create an “exoneration commission” tasked with investigating “all cases in which an innocent person was convicted and exonerated” in order to identify the cause of wrongful convictions and to consider solutions through legislation, rule, or procedural change. Representative Ruth Jones McClendon has authored and introduced this legislation several times in recent years (most recently, HB 166), and though it passed in the House last session, it stalled in the Senate, never making it out of committee. This legislation, or something like it, is long overdue.
I am strongly in favor of limited government interference in individual rights – including gun rights – and I support safe, responsible, and legal gun ownership and use. I also support background checks for all gun purchases, in order to keep guns out of the hands of minors, criminals and those who are a danger to themselves or others. Like many Texans, I have strong opinions about the individual right to own guns, and there are 3 handguns in my home, properly secured in a gun safe. Before deciding how I would vote on any specific legislation like this, I would study the specific legislation at issue and would listen to the people of my district.
We currently incarcerate a large number of Texans for charges related to simple marijuana possession. We need to take a serious look at our current penal code and look for common sense reforms that would alleviate the enormous fiscal strains these crimes place on our budget. As a mother of four children, I would be wary of supporting any proposals that make drugs more available, but as a taxpayer, I recognize that our state’s limited resources might be better utilized for investigations of more serious crimes. Thus, I am open to considering changes on this issue and will support specific legislation that I believe serve the best interests of the people in my district.
I believe this issue deserves serious consideration, and I am interested in becoming more familiar with the needs and feelings of the people of my own district on this issue. I am in favor of allowing the issue to be decided by Texas voters.
Open records and open meetings laws ensure transparency and public access to our government and benefit all Texans. Since these laws were first enacted, available communication technologies have expanded and evolved, and these laws should be updated to address the realities of our communication networks today – such as the reality that much information is now available online. I am in favor of updating these laws in a way that will ensure transparency and public access to information online and to ensure that such information is accessible to all, including individuals with disabilities.
No. Municipalities and local residents are in the best position to make oil and gas drilling decisions for their local communities.
We should do more to protect individuals who use these services. My district has many of these types of businesses, and though I support all of our lawful local businesses, I do not support those that engage in illegal or predatory activities that exploit and harm the people in my district.

This is a serious problem, and one that directly impacts our community. One of the nation’s largest payday lenders is headquartered in Irving and was recently found to have used illegal debt collection tactics to pressure borrowers into taking out more loans they could not afford, resulting in approximately $10 million in fines. To prevent additional harm to consumers, I believe we should pass statewide reforms that will provide basic protections to consumers while still allowing local municipalities and voters to impose stricter regulations in their own communities if local voters and municipalities deem fit.
