Candidate Statement:
Family First – I believe parents should decide where and how their children should be educated and disciplined.

Access to the Court– I feel the JP office should be open later 1 or 2 nights a week so those who have business before the court or its offices do not have to take off during the day.

I am seeking this office, not as a stepping stone, but as the one office where I believe I would best serve the citizens of East Dallas County. After having served on staff in three area churches and running a small business for 20 years, I have gained invaluable experience that helps me in working with the public and finding solutions that serve the community with integrity.

Born in Decatur, Texas Raised in Mesquite, Texas.

Graduate of Mesquite High School

B/A from Amberton University Garland Texas in

Professional Development

15 years as Youth Minister at three area churches.

Owner of Gallion Window Specialties, Inc. 20 years.

I volunteered as a neighborhood representative for my Homeowners Association. In my previous neighborhood, I attended training through the City of Garland and served on the Citizens on Patrol program. As a small business owner located in downtown Garland I was involved in many downtown events and organizations. I volunteered as a coach for basketball and softball city sports leagues for my children’s teams.

The Republican Primary In Texas

On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the statute-specified period of early voting and absentee voting, the primary elections of the Republican Party will take place throughout Texas.

A primary election is an election in which registered voters in their county of residence will select candidates that they believe should represent the Republican Party for certain elected office to run in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

In the primary elections in Texas, registered voters will select candidates for certain Federal offices, State offices and County offices. The primary elections are also used to select party convention delegates and party leaders. Candidates for these offices have to meet the requirements of the office and file by the deadline in December 2021 in order to appear on the ballot.

The State of Texas employs an open primary system. In this system, voters do not have to register with a party in advance to participate in that party's primary. The voter must sign a pledge stating the following (the language below is taken directly from state statutes):

“The following pledge shall be placed on the primary election ballot above the listing of candidates' names: 'I am a Republican and understand that I am ineligible to vote or participate in another political party's primary election or convention during this voting year.”
