There are over 150,000 residents in this district, most under the age of 25. For the past 20 years, District 64 has been massively misrepresented. The majority of eligible voters have Democratic values, yet time and again Republicans have held the office representing this district. Having lived in Texas all of my life I understand the core values of Texans, and even though most places in the state are deep red, not all of them are; district 64 is a blue oasis within a desert of red. Every election Republicans are getting more and more conservative while the voters themselves are becoming more progressive. It is time for lawmakers to stop making laws for their time and start making laws for the current time. I have a message for all who believe that the old ways will no longer be stood for: Our Time is Now.
