Tom’s principles are rooted in respect and understanding of the United States Constitution and our Bill of Rights. As a veteran, an engineer and international business lawyer that has worked in the private sector, Tom understands job creation more than any entrenched, career politician. Tom is committed to doing what is right, representing all people of the 33rd Congressional District of Texas, and bringing a fresh new voice to Washington.
- Promote legislation that incentivizes job creation rather than exporting jobs to foreign countries;
- Champion the Bill of Rights in its entirety and oppose any effort to slowly erode the foundations of freedom;
- Support fairness in our Tax Code and other laws;
- Work tirelessly to bring an end to hateful and harmful deportation policies; and
- Keep promises to ensure access to health care and the workability of the Affordable Care Act.
Tom knows how important good jobs and a strong economy are to the hard-working families in Texas’ 33rd Congressional District. We need to create good paying jobs and boost the economy, but we also need to invest in our workforce. Having spent most of his career as an R&D Engineer and in the mobile technology industry, Tom knows we must invest in training workers for a new economy.
Our current representatives in Washington have had a real part in creating the problems we’re seeing in the economy. The time has come for a fresh approach and a realistic view of how to keep jobs in America.
Tom believes quality, affordable health care should be available to everyone. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2014, everyone will be eligible for health care coverage. However, there is still work to be done in Congress. We must lower our health care costs, make sure hard-working families have access to affordable care, and help small business meet their employee’s needs without undue burden.
It is time for comprehensive immigration reform. No more waiting, and no more excuses. Tom is committed to working to get the DREAM ACT passed, and serving as a champion for comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship.
As a U.S. Marine veteran, Tom knows how important it is to support the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our country. He also understands what it is like to be a military veteran. His service to the country ended on June 10, 1976 and on June 11, 1976 he found himself in a classroom, ready to begin his engineering career, with no money. He was ineligible, at that time, for many of the financial aid opportunities others were afforded. Veterans deserve our gratitude and deep respect and shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to work or receive their benefits. Veterans should have access to employment training, education, and affordable health care for their families.
