Want to ask a question, but know it's kind of rude? Or do you just want to know the nitty gritty details of your candidate?
You've come to the right place. Here is where Allison will be answering all of the Frequently Asked Questions and the Frequently not-asked-but-wish-it-was-polite-to Questions, alike.
Here is also where we'll be posting our financial statements, so they are easy and hassle-free for you to find. You deserve to know who funds your government.
Who gives you money?
Click below to read the financial statements.
How old are you?
30. My birth date is 8/7/87.
Who did you vote for in the 2016 Presidential election?
I voted for Bernie in the primary, and Hillary in the general. I voted in the state of Oklahoma, where I was registered to vote in order to achieve in-state status to afford my graduate education.
Are you going to take PAC money?
There are two important things to know about PACs.
- They are not SuperPACs. SuperPACs allow donors to skirt donation limits to give unlimited funds to federal candidates. Regular PACs are the groups which have come together (and are not able to use these financial or disclosure loopholes) to support a particular cause. There are some PACs which really represent my ideals and my goals, such as the Tarrant County Democratic Women's Club and the Sierra Club. I would be honored to take their donations.
- I am not a federal candidate, and state candidates are not bound to donation limits. Charles Koch or Bill Gates could personally write me a $500,000 check if they wanted to, and that would be totally legal. As such, I will be refusing large donations if I cannot understand the donor's financial motivations, or if those motivations do not correlate with my ideals. And I'll be posting those big donations right here on this page, so you can see who is funding your candidate.
Did you move to the district just to run for this seat?
No - actually my husband started his current job in Everman back in December of 2016. It took us until April to find a house we liked that was closer to work for him.
I've lived in DFW my whole life, whether that be in Irving, Denton, Carrollton, Argyle, or Euless. I'm excited to represent my community in the Texas State Legislature.
I don't see my question answered here - what should I do?
