Republican Morgan Meyer voted for extremist legislation to deny Texans access to reproductive care and abortion, even in extreme circumstances such as rape and incest. After Roe v. Wade was overturned, he said he would advocate for exceptions, but failed to deliver. Across Texas, women and parents are suffering from emotional and physical pain created by this barbaric legislation. Elizabeth believes that the state government has overreached into our healthcare and is interfering with personal decisions that should be made between individuals and their doctors.
Quality education is a core value in Texas House District 108 and constitutionally mandated in Texas, but Republican Morgan Meyer has voted FOR vouchers and AGAINST teacher raises. Parents and taxpayers expect a State Representative who will defend our public schools, not defund them. We need to provide local districts with the needed resources in schools, and work together towards a long-term solution that reduces the burden on homeowners who have covered the bill left by the state reducing its contribution to public school funding. We also need to support special education programs and invest in trade programs, community colleges, adult education and other ways to prepare our workforce to be job ready.
Most Texans believe in the 2nd Amendment and the right to own firearms. Texans also agree that we must do something to curb the mass shootings that have led to tragedy after tragedy. Elizabeth will support rational measures such as red flag laws, responsible gun storage, background checks, better enforcement of existing laws, and perhaps even limiting or eliminating the sale of military weaponry so our police aren't outgunned in our neighborhoods. Texans have the right to live free from the fear of gun violence in our schools, shopping malls, movie theaters, places of worship and festivals.
