Platform

Strong on Criminal Justice Reform and Education Refinement. One of the most popular community organizers.

THERE ARE FIVE COMPONENTS TO OUR PLATFORM

 

Criminal Justice Reform


Ross takes a similar stance on criminal justice reform to that of Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy, who recently signed two major pieces of legislation to reform New Jersey’s criminal justice system. The bills will reform the expungement process to restore voting rights to those on probation or parole, help give individuals entangled in the criminal justice system the opportunity to fully participate in our society and democracy. 
Ross is confident that a similar legislation would reform our ideologies about criminal justice here in Texas
Additional issues:
Harsh punishment for crimes against seniors
Bring awareness to forms of exploitation seniors encounter (identity theft, telemarketer fraud, home improvement scams)
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” - Thomas Jefferson

Education Refinement


Understanding that “education is the passport for the future”, Ross prioritizes education as an important issue. As a state representative, Ross advocates for:
  • Increase in pay for teachers, librarians, and other faculty
  • Affordable healthcare plans for teachers
  • Additional instructional support for teachers working at under-performing schools
