I believe in the value of education. Our family has actively been involved in public education for years. I have volunteered in numerous capacities such as organizing a Free Enterprise program for our area juniors and senior, speaking to Jr. High students about the advantages of staying in school, and working in the Junior Achievement and Rotary Literacy Programs. My wife Glynna was a Big Spring ISD Trustee for eight (8) years serving as President of the school board during her time on the board. Our children all graduated from Big Spring ISD. I understand that state and local resources are limited and we must do everything in our power to ensure the taxpayer's dollars are spent wisely. We must continue to create the BEST public school system in the world because our future is our children and our future depends on them.
Every year District 85 competes with not only the rest of the state but also the rest of the world for jobs and economic development. West Texas has lagged behind the rest of the state with regard to population growth, wage and salary increase, and regional output. However, we are starting to see much needed capital investment in District 85. Private industry is beginning to recognize the value of our people and our geography as well as our natural resources. These industries are investing millions of dollars to create wealth and put the citizens of District 85 to work. I have visited with the leaders of private industry and they consistently deliver one common theme create a business friendly environment conducive for investment. This means a fair and equitable tax structure, educational facilities that produce qualified workers and a friendly regulatory environment.
Perhaps the single most important issue we are facing, a sustainable water supply for today and the future, must be a top priority for District 85. Water is a treasured resource - a resource without whose presence we are doomed to failure. I promise to work tirelessly to make sure that District 85 and the citizens that live here are protected against loss of water rights to urban areas of our state. We must also develop new water resources that will take us into the decades to come.
