I am Marty Schexnayder and I am running in the Democratic Primary for State Representative, District 133.
I am a native Houstonian and have lived in Texas all my life. I believe Texas is a great State, but we can do better. Our public education system is ranked among the worst in the country, primarily because our Legislature has refused to properly fund our schools. As your Representative, I will advocate for restoring funding for our schools so our students and teachers have the resources they need. My first act as Representative will be to file a bill requiring the State to use a minimum of $5 billion of the "rainy day" fund toward K-12 public education, and to reform the antiquated "Robin Hood" financing system. We have waited long enough -- it is time to put education first!
I will also vote to increase support for other critical State services, such as healthcare, infrastructure, and flood control, all of which have been ignored and underfunded by our Republican Legislators. Over 1 million Texans are uninsured, which is unacceptable. Not only is providing healthcare a moral imperative, it is good for our economy.
Lastly, I will resist efforts by our Republican leaders to impose their personal or religious beliefs on others, and will support laws that protect the equality of all, regardless of race, citizenship status, sexual preference or gender. I will always support a woman's right to choose. As your Representative, I will put the concerns of my constituents and Texans first. Help me make this happen and support my campaign today!
Don't forget to vote in the Democratic primary on March 6, 2018 (early voting starts on Feb 20, 2018)!
