For 27 years as an investigative reporter, I have worked with relentless energy and passion to make life better for everyday North Texans. Many times, this has meant giving a voice to those who struggle, those who lack resources or a voice. If you know me, you know I leave no stone unturned in the fight for justice and fairness. Over my career I have fought for public education, for injured workers, for the sick, for veterans, for the elderly, for the poor, for the disenfranchised, for public safety, and for the greater good. I want to continue this work in a bigger way by serving as your representative in Washington.
America is at a political crossroads, and it’s time to stand up to radical extremism and failed ideology and look for real solutions for all of us. Just like you, I have seen enough. I am sickened by the direction of this country, the lack of decency, honesty, integrity and leadership. The Trump administration and his timid enablers in Congress have already succeeded in turning back the clock on civil rights, women’s rights, critical consumer protections, the environment, public education, global relations, financial regulations, the list goes on and on.
I have witnessed and reported on the ruin of our social fabric as partisan division, bluster and bickering have infected our politics and our personal relations. Why?
We are all Americans. We are all family. We are all in this together and together we must triumph over hatred, vitriol and violence. I believe that we can reunite. We can regain civility. We can compromise and find middle ground.
All my life I have spoken out with passion and energy to defend truth and justice. I think Washington could use an injection of relentless “Leader Shipp.” I will ask the tough questions. I will get to the bottom of problems and issues. And you have my word that I will shine the light on the Issues and special interests that for too long have operated in the darkness.
