The timing on H.E.B.’s new national anti-bullying campaign is amazing. The last time I felt bullied was at their meeting at City Park where Ben Scott, H.E.B.’s representative used “negative behaviors such as teasing, exclusion and other forms of bullying” against the more than a hundred concerned citizens that showed up to hear what they had to say. I even used the word “bully” in my first letter to the editor about this meeting.
Hays County’s population has doubled in just 15 years, from 100,000 to 200,000 residents. Fast growth puts great strain on essential county functions, like roads and emergency services, and threatens the safety and quality of life of every Hays County family.
That’s why our county leaders developed Propositions 1 and 2 on this fall’s General Election ballot. These propositions present a thoughtful and responsible plan to protect Hays County’s public safety and quality of life as we grow, and they will not require any increase in the tax rate.

In elementary school, I was Captain of the Safety Patrol. Today, I serve on a different kind of safety patrol in Washington. I am working to ensure that, among other things, every young person has the opportunity to obtain the education necessary to achieve their full God-given potential.
