A Message from Claire
Dear Residents of State House District 122:
You deserve a choice when you go to the ballot box and you deserve a representative who will focus on the real issues you face everyday, not issues that are manufactured by cultural divides. As State Representative for District 122, I will be an advocate for families and be a positive voice to improve our children’s education and health care, and to protect the civil liberties, human rights, and privacy of all Texans. My focus is on fueling our economy and building safe, healthy, and welcoming communities.
I have expertise in the areas of education, health care, and online privacy and security. I understand these issues because of who I am as a mother, a volunteer in my community, and as a professional. As a public servant, I will listen to my constituents, to learn from them. I will practice inclusion, decency, and generosity at all times; and I will take a pragmatic approach to solving problems, being open to real solutions no matter their source.
Democratic Candidate for State Representative 122
