I am running to represent my friends and neighbors in Blanco and Hays counties. Represent is a key to my campaign. I have been an active member of the Hays County Deocratic Party serving as treasurer from 2011 through 2017 and was a founding member of the San Marcos Area Democrats. My experience as a public servant in the Comptroller’s office for 27 years assisting taxpayers from all over Texas with various state’s tax statutes and rules related to state revenues makes me uniquely qualified for this office.
An extremist agenda has hijacked these revenues to serve only the privileged few and not the general public good. We must restore and increase funding to women’s and children’s healthcare and the infrastructure for our roads and bridges. We need to examine the subsidies of given to the industries pushed by the extremist Koch brothers’ American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC brought us SB4 and the very mean spirited “un-Texan” bathroom bill.
Texans are good neighbors and don’t beat up on women, children or immigrants. I was born to a Democratic mother (taught public school for 4 decades) and father (federal civil servant at Kelly Field), both were strong supporters of Henry B. Gonzalez. “Henry B” is still a hero to me. There are many things to improve and undo resulting from the extremist ALEC’s water boy Isaac but it will be possible.
Let’s get started, vote for Les Carnes Texas HD 45.
