Houston District 131

This district covers Madison, Sterling, Worthing, Westbury, & Sharpstown High Schools (shown by red circles on the map).

Middle and low-middle-income household are being squeezed and stretched and their savings are depleted as the cost of living, maintaining or buying an automobile, getting an education, paying for healthcare, caring for our elderly, or running a small business have all doubled, and in some cases, tripled in cost. In contrast wages, salaries, and retirement benefits rise less than 4% annually!

We need leadership with a fresh vision and a fresh approach. Ready to work to tackle these challenges along with the voters, and partner and provide solutions, options, and legislation to better serve you the Citizens!
