My Priorities

My call to public service came from God’s plan for me and my family. It was God’s calling that led me to run for office and it is his call once again that brings me back. With His blessing I have the strength and vision to continue to serve our community. I learned a lot in my first year serving as your State Representative and I accomplished a lot. We passed pro-life legislation, strengthened the 2nd Amendment, cracked down on sanctuary cities and passed a conservative budget.

However, there is so much more to be done. I am fighting to fix our tax system by having the state pay for school taxes instead of runaway property taxes. I want to create the foundations of a better healthcare system to help Texans when Congress repeals Obamacare. I am going to keep fighting back against the leftist attacks on our religious freedoms and ensure that we are not admonished for our religious beliefs. I want Cypress and Tomball to continue to grow and recover especially after Hurricane Harvey, and I demand that that we have adequate infrastructure to deal with events like Harvey. I look forward to working in Austin to advocate for my district to make sure that the legislature helps rebuild our community.

I want to keep our community a place where family values come first, where neighbors take care of each other and people are proud to be American. I want to fulfill God’s plan for me by serving you faithfully and making a better community for all of us.

Governor Abbott Announces Federal Grant for Senior Citizen Meals

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today announced that Texas has received a $16.2 million grant from the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Community Living (ACL) to help communities provide meals for older adults.

The grant was part of a $250 million dollar outlay authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, signed into law by President Trump on March 18, 2020. Originally created by the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965, these programs provide meals to more than 2.4 million older adults nationwide each year, both through home delivery and in places like community centers.

“This grant is especially timely given the disproportionately high toll that COVID-19 has been taking on seniors around the world,” said Governor Abbott. “As social distancing measures increasingly and appropriately limit people’s social mobility, it is imperative that alternate means for feeding our state’s elderly like Meals on Wheels receive additional resources to handle the growing need.”

Texas will receive its proportional grant, $16,205,796, second only to California ($25 million) and Florida ($18 million) this week for further distribution to local meal providers.
Older adults who need assistance can contact the Eldercare Locator to find services available in their community. The Eldercare Locator can be reached at 1-800-677-1116 or eldercare.acl.gov/.
