  • Expand education funding
  • Strengthen Headstart/pre-K programs
  • Promote vocational programs at high school and beyond

These policies will lay the best foundation for our students, leading to Texas economy and society that will be the envy of all.

Energy

  • Provide robust support to industries to ensure Texas remains a global leader in energy and natural resources.
  • Promote job growth in the green and renewable energy sector.
  • Working with oil and gas companies to train workers across multiple energy sectors.

Infrastructure

  • Infrastructure investment is good for the economy, good for jobs, and is good for safety
  • Building better roads and bridges will build pathways towards progress and prosperity
  • Sustain and maintain the growing population in North Texas with smart, disciplined growth

Healthcare

A healthy people leads to a thriving society; to accomplish this, we must address the costs of healthcare and health insurance. To fight for a healthier Texas, Andrew will:

  • Fight for Texas to accept the Medicaid expansion
  • Negotiate with health insurance and healthcare providers to lower costs for all Texans
  • Support access to better options for Texan’s healthcare

Local Government

  • Opposing one-size-fits-all government in Austin.
  • Engaging and empowering residents in deciding what is best for their communities.
  • Funding city and county offices to carry out these policies.

Women’s Health

While resetting Austin’s priorities towards education and healthcare, Andrew will ensure a women’s right to self-determination and ability to decide for herself what’s best for her will never be abridged. Andrew will advocate for:

  • Equal, easy, and accessible women’s health clinics across the district and state
  • Reducing onerous and unnecessary burdens on healthcare providers
  • Policies that tackle the rising maternal mortality rate, reduce inequalities between men’s and women’s products, and ensure every Texan can access the healthcare they need.

Immigration

As an immigrant, Andrew is intimately familiar with the expensive, laborious, and murky immigration system. With his knowledge of the system, Andrew is well placed to promote:

  • A pathway to citizenship for DREAMers under the DACA program
  • Bringing undocumented migrants out from the shadows and give them a place at the table
  • Invest Texas resources wisely in monitoring the border, without a need for an expensive and ineffective wall

Gun Regulation

The gun violence epidemic has claimed too many lives in the United States. Drawing on his international experience, and acknowledging the Constitutional protection to keep and bear arms, Andrew believes the following measures can reduce gun violence, accidental shootings, and suicides:

  • Enhanced and expanded universal background checks
  • Responsible gun licensing and gun training prior to purchase
  • Allowing researchers the ability and resources to study gun violence and bring recommendations to legislators.

Disability

28 years have passed since the Americans with Disabilities Act became law, but still barriers remain for a fully inclusive society. As part of his platform, Andrew will fight to:

  • Expand and enhance Medicaid system that is fully funded and covers more Texans
  • Restore funding to Early Childhood Intervention, as well as ensure more funding for the 139,000 Texans with developmental disabilities who otherwise face the risk of unnecessary and expensive institutionalization.
  • Increase public education funding to ensure that all Texans, even those with disabilities, can have a free, appropriate education

By starting with these policies, Texas can meet both the spirit and the letter of the ADA and ensures all Texans live in an inclusive and integrated society that allows everyone the ability to pursue their version of the American Dream.
