"It is the responsibility of the Commissioners Court to ensure that the citizens of Plano are safe in their homes, communities, and place of business. A failure to project an adequate, trained and sufficient numbers of law enforcement officials is a danger to us all". Byron Bradford
Improve Resources for Mental Illness facilities:
"Our society is recognizing the value of mental health care and yet we haven't really increased the supply," said Jon Lehrmann, a psychiatrist who chairs the psychiatry and behavioral medicine department at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  
On the financial side, insurers reimburse behavioral health services at a lower rate than other medical specialties. Exacerbating the situation, many patients are covered by Medicaid, which generally pays even less.

Veterans


As a veteran myself, taking care of our veterans is dear to my heart and taking care of their needs is very important to me. I am too a victim of how poorly the Veteran Affairs System operates, I understand how they fell. It is time that our politicians put away Washington bureaucracy and disarm the convoluted process so that no veteran should die waiting for help.  


Economy


Our Collin County has been a leader as one of the fastest growing counties in the nation in job creation and growth in population. While the progress we’ve made has been good, we still need to build an economy that works for everyone. We must come together to provide our citizens with the necessary tools to be successful, whether they want to open a small business or go back to school. We must invest in our infrastructure to reduce congestion, create more affordable housing, and invest in our people by empowering corporations to start vocational internship programs with our K-12 students, for those who decided that traditional college might not be for them. We need to help small businesses as well as the middle-class workers to thrive with a tax reform that will work for all and not just big corporations. The middle-class workers are the backbone of our economy, when they are doing well our county will flourish. 


Education


Parents have had the important duty to nurture and guide their children, to be good and to give a good example. It is extremely important that we give our children a strong foundation, a healthy start in life where every child deserves the same equal opportunity. Our educators are working hard and are conscientious of the responsibility they have in our communities. We need to provide the resources, the training, and the support they need to enable them to be the tutor of virtue for our future generations. It really does takes a village to raise a child, growing up my mother, who was a teacher, always reminded me that education is the only thing that no one can take away from me. My mother’s advice came from surviving a war and has lost everything because of it.  


Family Values

God, Family, and Country is my family motto, those are the values that have been instilled in me. Family is everything to me and I would not be who I am today without the help and support from them. My family taught me to love and protect all beings, while having the compassion to feel for those who are less fortunate than I am and try to help them.
