Education needs to be our State's priority. We must focus on hiring and rewarding the best teachers, allow schools to expel the most unruly and disruptive students, and empower parents and schools with more local control and fewer state mandates. Angie formed an Education Roundtable with classroom teachers, parents and business executives to discuss solutions. Angie supports efforts to make UTD a premier university.
2nd Amendment Rights
Angie opposes Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders that are a threat to our 2nd Amendment rights. She knows the Constitution is clear, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Yet liberal politicians in DC continue to push their agenda. Endorsed and ‘A’ rated by the NRA and TSRA, Angie has a perfect record of defending our gun rights. Last session, Angie co-authored open carry legislation that passed overwhelmingly. We can trust Angie to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.
Through her work as a marketing executive for Texas Instruments, Angie has witnessed exciting technology, attractive educational resources, and other amazing capabilities within our community. Let’s leverage these resources and allow the State of Texas to help us recruit international businesses. Economic development and creating jobs for Texans are her priorities.
