Trent's Priorities For District 29

Border Security

We are a nation under assault. Human trafficking, the drug trade, and transnational cartels affect everyone. Texas must continue to take extraordinary steps to do what the federal government won’t.

School Choice

Most of our schools in Texas a great – but some are failing their student, parents and the community. No child should be deprived of a quality education because of their zip code. Empowering parents with the tools to choose what’s right for their child will always be the right thing to do.

Property Taxes

Cities, counties, and school districts rely on property taxes to fund their operation. Their locally elected leaders must address the needs of their constituents but have to remember that they have to live within the financial constraints of their voters. The legislature has established new limits on what they can spend without voter approval – a great step to curtail past abuses by some local governments.

Public Safety

Public safety is government first responsibility. We need to ensure that law enforcement is supported and funded. Judges and District Attorneys who disregard the laws and public safety and who turn dangerous criminals lose must be stopped.
