Jason Villalba: Why I’m Running

December 1, 2011

We are blessed to live in the greatest place in the world – a state that is defined by independence, and a city that is known for a can-do spirit. But lately, times have been a bit tougher, and we’ve been forced to make tough choices that will impact families today, and into the next generation.

Now more than ever, we need leaders who will put partisanship aside, and work to do what’s right for our taxpayers, our family and our future – and that’s why I have decided to run for the open Texas House seat currently held by Republican Will Hartnett, who has decided not to run for re-election.

The promise of our future lies in creating policies that will create jobs and grow our economy, and in taking bolds steps to dramatically improve our underperforming public schools – and make sure that our children are given the tools they need to succeed and prosper in the future. And, the key to making a difference on these key issues is electing leaders with a sole focus of doing what’s right for our families.

As your State Representative, I am committed to always putting the best interest of our taxpayers and families first – regardless of the issue, partisanship or special interests. If you agree that it’s time for leadership that is effective, conservative and accountable to you, then I would be honored to have your support.
