It’s time for common sense Medicaid reform.
I don’t believe Texans should be penalized for getting a job and supporting their families. Yet that is just what our current Medicaid rules do!
If someone earns over $208 a month, they lose their Medicaid – giving them more incentive to stay unemployed and on Medicaid than to grab that first rung of the ladder!
I want to expand Medicaid to cover all low-income working people in Texas, not just children or pregnant women.
Dustin Burrows has voted NO on expanding Medicaid for 6 years. It’s time to vote YES and make healthcare work for all Texans!
Fund our school districts for the long run…not the short term.
Current funding will run out in two years. What happens to our teachers and our children then?
Current funding takes care of the larger school districts…but what about our local schools?
If you’re tired of being passed over and pushed aside by the powers that be in Austin, vote yourself a voice in a candidate who will fight for better teacher pay permanently. Not just a 2-year plan.
Recently I participated in a fundraiser to raise money for school supplies so our dedicated teachers would not have to pay for them. What is wrong with this picture?
· Sports. Band. Debate club. Children who are homeschooled should have the right to access extracurricular activities. Yet current regulations exclude them. This is not fair, and I will correct it!
Gun ownership is our Constitutional right. Gun safety is our responsibility.
Better gun safety training will prevent countless deaths and accidents. If we keep guns in our homes, we parents need to take responsibility for safely storing them and training ourselves and our kids on proper use.
I will work to enact common-sense gun safety protocols to keep our children safe.
I will also work to fix the gun show loopholes, so criminals and severely mentally ill patients will not have access to guns.
Voter Rights!Texas's Voter registration process is outdated. In this digital age, does an old-fashioned 30-day waiting period make sense? Let’s give every voter a voice, with Automatic Voter Registration for US Citizens in Texas!
Equal rights for LGBT in Texas.Every Texan deserves equal protection under the law. It’s time to add gender identity to anti-discrimination laws.
Racial/gender/orientation hate crime lawToo many transgender and LGBT people are murdered or beaten. Yet Texas does not have a hate crime law. Any attack motivated by hatred of gender identity, orientation, or race should be treated as a hate crime in Texas. Period.
My opponent Dustin Burrows helped author the transgender bathroom bill, which banned transgenders from using the restroom of their identity, which failed, because of the inequality of the bill.
Science has repeatedly proven the consumption of marijuana produces no adverse effects on personal health. Medical marijuana is an excellent pain reliever and can be used appropriately for a considerable variety of medical purposes, including Cancer, PTSD, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, And multiple other medical conditions.
Decriminalization and eventual legalization will reduce overcrowding and keep many otherwise law-abiding young people from being imprisoned instead of being productive members of society.\ Legalized marijuana will bring revenue to the counties and state, by implementing a state tax on marijuana sales.
My opponent Dustin Burrows voted no on legalization even after telling voters he supported it. Now he is campaigning for the legalization of marijuana simply because Addison's campaign has been sayin g this from the start. and he found out it's what the people want.
Corruption is running rampant in our government. Elected officials are there to serve us, not to serve their own selfish interests. Send me to Austin and I will hold them accountable!
I will help protect whistleblowers with anonymous reporting and protections for doing the right thing.
I pledge that I will use my office to champion a Green New Deal in any and all ways, including but not limited to: developing and supporting Green New Deal legislation and/or resolutions; building support amongst my colleagues for a Green New Deal; and publicly advocating for the necessity of a Green New Deal. In order to fully uphold this duty, I pledge to not take contributions over $200 from oil, gas, and coal industry executives, lobbyists, or PACs and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.
USTL President, Philip Blumel, commented on Franks’s pledge saying, “Addison‘s support of term limits shows that there are individuals who are willing to listen to the majority of voters who want term limits. America needs a Congress that will be served by citizen legislators, not career politicians.”
The U.S. Term Limits pledge is provided to candidates and members of state legislatures. It reads, “I pledge that, as a member of the state legislature, I will cosponsor, vote for, and defend the resolution applying for an Article V convention for the limited purpose of enacting term limits on Congress.”
Continue on down for the rest of the platform.
Our current Representative, my opponent, along with HD84 and SD28 Representatives, has just ordered and made the Lubbock Mayor enact an ordinance banning abortions in the City, simply because Planned Parenthood was coming back to Lubbock.
This intense lawbreaking action, as we watch the Lubbock mayor and my opponent, goes against the Supreme Court case Roe V Wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey.
By enacting this law, they have shown they don't care if a young girl gets raped and forced to carry the child.
They don't worry that a young girl was forced to be impregnated by incest by her father, uncle, or brother. That girl must carry to term; what kind of monster forces a girl to have her brother's baby?
They don't care if the mother is dying because of the pregnancy, save the baby -- kill the mother, They are committing murder to the mother, but they don't care, protect the baby, the mother's sacrifice, she won't have a choice.
These laws show how these Representatives are greedy monsters and that they would instead save an unborn child, then save the mother, or save her from years of memories and flashbacks and pain. In this day and age, it is time for freedom, the freedom to choose, the freedom to live, and the freedom to have an abortion if the woman so chooses.
Our current representatives do not care about the people, they do not care about you, and they certainly do not care about the women in Lubbock County or District 83. they sure don't care about people's rights.
I plan to take a stand to block corruption in the state House; I pledge to stop lawbreakers and to stand for the people, as we make a stand and say this is unconstitutional, and we will l fight for our rights as a Texan and an American.
It is not up to a state or an elected official to choose what a woman does with her body; it is not up to a neighbor, family member, or friend to tell a woman what to do with her body.
It is the woman's right to choose Vote pro-choice on November 3rd, 2020. Vote for common sense, and take a stand for your rights.
Let's bring back texas to the people, and let's fight for everyone's right to choose! Grant yourself a choice!
