My Name is Gavin Bruney. I want to be your next State Representative in House District 21.

PUBLIC SCHOOL FINANCING
Unfunded mandates in 2009 and the reduction of public school education funding by 5.4 billion dollars in 2011 has been an assault on public school education. Six hundred school districts found the need to sue the state of Texas because of the unconstitutional funding of public schools. This trend to "stack 'em deep and teach 'em cheap" MUST be reversed.

PROPERTY TAX
The current property tax appraisal system in Texas is not fair and equitable. This system does not guarantee a fair valuation process. The loop hole for large corporations provides for a reduced tax valuation thereby lowing their tax bill by millions, putting the tax burden on home owners and small businesses. I promise to fight to close that loophole.

WATER RIGHTS
The 2014 Dallas water plan calls for a pipeline from South Dallas to the Neches River. I am committed to protecting the Junior water rights of Southeast Texas from the acquisition by large cities.

RULE OF LAW ON MARIJUANA
I have a deep and abiding respect for the rule of law. I DO NOT support the legalization of Marijuana. However after 29 years as a medical professional I can see potential for its use for medical conditions such as Cancer, HIV/Aids, eating disorders, epilepsy and many other conditions prescribed under a doctor's care.
