It’s been brought to my attention that not everyone knows that I am a transgender woman. To be clear, I am not only running with the City of Austin’s best interest in mind but also as a direct response to the Texas legislature’s emergency session which tied a bathroom bill in with Texas Education Funding. Here in Austin, we will not stand for that type of bigotry against the LGBTQ or any other community. Austin is for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or religion. We, as Texas’s fourth largest city, need to fight the state to ensure our morals, values, and beliefs are not trod upon. Texas is supposed to be all about local government. The State needs to let us govern ourselves.
Remember, voting for LGBTQ candidates is one of the best ways to ensure your elected representative is progressive.
