Our Turn Texas/ Texas WFP 2019 Candidate Questionnaire

Prologue

America and Americans face enormous challenges.

Rising economic inequality.  The barriers to a decent life created by structural racism. Climate change.  An oligarchic political system where all too often, big money calls the shots. And all of this was before the election of Donald Trump, who is making all these problems worse.

We believe Americans are hungry for bold leadership. But it requires elected political leaders who put forward a vision of change, and energized people to prod them forward. The Working Families Party believes in fighting for an economy and a society in which all people can thrive. That means creating good jobs at decent wages. Investing in public goods, from schools to roads and bridges to water systems to parks. Defending the rights and safety of all people, including immigrants and people of color. The actions of our elected officials can transform people’s lives.

The Working Families Party is a progressive political organization that has helped elect thousands of candidates to local, state, and federal office. We’re growing across the country and working hard to elect the next generation of progressive leaders who believe our nation’s government must stand for the many, not the few.
