As Texas continues to enjoy economic growth, especially in its metropolitan areas, the state’s agriculture sector remains one of America’s critical resources and needs special consideration. As our summer reminds us, water is precious. It is important to both city and farm, and I will work in Austin to make sure this balance is preserved.
I grew up working on a farm and raising cattle in 4H. It taught me the value of hard work. My grandfather, Maurice Kremer, was a Senator in Nebraska’s single-chamber legislature for twenty years, where he earned the nickname “Mr. Water” for his expertise and legislation in support of agriculture and water resources. He was innovative both at the technical level – he invented simple irrigation techniques for farmers – and at the policy level. He helped pass legislation to create the state’s first water plan – a model of policymaking that Texas and other states would follow in order to plan for the future. Senator Kremer also passed legislation to improve the soil and water conservation districts of the state.
This is the way I want to serve in the Texas House – by listening to everyone who stewards this precious resource of water and wants to see Texas agriculture continue to supply so much of the nation’s food and fiber. I want to shepherd innovation where it makes sense and make sure all the different interests in this policy area are heard and accommodated as best as possible.
