“While I served as Field Representative for Congressman Farenthold, I saw how underserved our district has been in the past. I have had an opportunity to help constituents with immigration, veteran issues and social security. I know the needs of my district, and as a small business owner, personally felt the struggles of staying on a shrinking budget, while trying to keep my employees with jobs.”
