I’m J. Darnell Jones, and as Congressman for the 2nd Congressional District of Texas, I will recognize our diversity in all ways. I will fight for us to be represented as one people in this great nation we call America, and for one future.
As congressman, I will bring our district together by championing the causes of:
• a strong federal education budget to fully fund our public schools,
• protect programs that provide all day Pre-K to all children in America,
• resounding support for a Medicare for All single-payer healthcare program to help make Texas and America healthier with healthcare focused on preventative care rather than treatment and emergency dependence,
• create a comprehensive program to reform our criminal justice system to eliminate its financial dependence on those who live in poverty,
• protect the hard-earned rights of children, seniors, women, LGBTQI, and ethnic minority groups,
• support equal pay for equal work, and
• increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Houston, just like other major cities, is a rapidly growing metropolitan area that needs major infrastructure overhauls. Hurricane Harvey put TX Cd-02 to the test, and our vulnerabilities were exposed in a major way. I will support legislation to help improve and modernize infrastructure, flood control projects, emergency preparedness and public transportation systems to not only make our area safe, but to increase our mobility and enhance tourism accessibility and revenue for our state.
The American people are my priority; therefore, I will fight for the creation of quality jobs that give families a better quality of life, and I will support trade agreements that help Texas farmers and ranchers create more jobs in Texas. The beauty of Texas depends on our willingness to protect workers’ rights and our environment; therefore, I will strive to support and champion legislation to make Texas and America the clean and renewable energy capital of the world. Achieving this goal will help create new American jobs, reduce pollution all across the country and help improve the health of all Americans.
I believe in America, Texas and I believe in you-the people of CD-02. With your vote and support, we can elect a new, and better vision for our district and country. I am that person to lead the charge just as I have proudly led troops and sailors for over 25 years in the best military the world, the United States Navy. The future is ours to claim and sustain. Let’s do it together for Texas and for America!
Again, I am J. Darnell Jones, and I would be honored to represent America as the next Congressman for the 2nd District of the great state of Texas! I need your prayers, your vote, and your financial support. Please join our fight and make your voice heard!
