First let me say that I am happy what you have done for Houston and want to see more of the same for the State of Texas. As a fellow engineer and manager, I think you have the experience and the right hand to play the entire deck of political cards. My first priority is increasing education level, to bring Texas from near last in the USA, up to at LEAST average. Yes, this takes dedication and money and reprioritization of the budget. Only the wealthy can afford private schools leaving the middle class and below with the deplorable Texas statistics as follows: 46th in math SAT scores, 49th in verbal SAT scores, 50th in percentage of residents with a high school diploma. I also think that education level is largely responsible for our ranking of: #3 in rates of incarceration. The tax money spent on prisons could be utilized elsewhere, if we cut crime. Listed in order of priority are the next challenges that I would like to see worked on to improve these standings: #3 in people without enough food, #3 in people living below the poverty level, 50th in access to health care, 50th in affordability of homeowner's insurance, #2 in road-rage traffic fatalities, 2 in identity theft. ... Please support what is best for Texas, no matter what the political party affiliation. Good luck on your quest.
