Special interests that do not reflect the values of the South Plains have plagued Austin, and had a negative effect on our great state. I will resist these special interests because I will go to Austin to represent you. We need to expand reforms on lobbyists by making them accurately report the amounts of their contracts to the Texas Ethics Commission. We should also define, and make register, political consultants in the State of Texas. Currently, we have no idea who is consulting our representatives and what other special interests that influence them are paying their salaries.
