When You Win
SLO #3List the office you have won, your political party, and the platform issues dearest to you. (from SLO #1) Research the committees of the House (http://www.house.state.tx.us/committees/ _ and state senate _http://www.senate.state.tx.us/committees.php _ Choose at least three (3) committees on which you’d serve, if elected. Explain each committee’s functions (is it substantive or procedural?). Explain why your placement on these committees is justified. How does it serve you district’s needs? How does it emphasize your experiences/interests? What kind of constituent service would you be likely to do? Most Texans do not know who their legislators are. How do you seek to solve that problem?

Preparing to Run: SLO #1
Rodney Anderson is the representative of District 105 in the Texas House of
Representative. He is running for re-election this year on the Republican Party. He currently holds
a Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate and has experience working at Chicago Title Company (The
Texas Tribune N.p). He has also served on the Insurance and Election Committee of Texas. His
campaign themes revolve around four ideologies. He holds the ideology of small business moving
again, reducing wasteful government expenditure, balancing the budget without increasing tax and
reduce unfunded mandates on education.
The District 105 has a population of 175, 728. The population is made up of a mixture of
57.3 % Black/Hispanic, 34.8 % whites, and 7.9 other races. The ethnicity of the district comprises
45.3% Hispanic and 54.7 non-Hispanic (The Texas Tribune N.p). The voting age, which is
eighteen years and above is 72.6%.
From the analysis above, I believe in fairness. I feel the importance of providing an equal
opportunity to all and limiting the taxation of the low-income classes. I feel that the government
is in a better position to provide specific universal services to and programs such as health, penal
systems, and education. There is a need for the government to develop strategies for universal
access to quality healthcare for all people, which is an integral component of creating equal rights
for all people (Democrats N.p). I also believe that crime is driven by certain factors, and it is not
necessary to spend taxpayers’ money on social programs that can reduce crime in the long run.
From these ideologies, I align myself with the Democrat party.
Issues to Stand
I will stand for the evaluation of pay scale for instructors in school to boost the recruitment
of top talented personnel. This advocacy will aim at retention of teachers, which is a direct
correlation between the success of children and their academic excellence. I will advocate for the
reduction and prevention of drug addiction. This issue of addiction has been a major challenge in
District 105 that I will stand to solve. Another issue that I will stand for is domestic violence. I
will use the influence of my position to support the community in the district in addressing
domestic violence to create a peaceful society.
Democrats align with the pillar of protecting citizens and their rights. The affiliates of this
party respect different perspective and beliefs of people and advocate for a community that works
together. The affiliates seek a common ground for all citizens with the aim of reaching higher
grounds (Democrats N.p) also advocate for party inclusion, which is in line with diversity in
America. The affiliates appreciate the diversity of American society, respect, and pledge to
collaborate with different stakeholders even in the midst of disagreements.
These ideas align with the issues that I stand for since they are geared towards forming
equality in the community. However, the idea of the party concerning crime and society differs
from my ideas. The party believes that crime is contributed by other factors apart from poverty,
while I believe that crime is a definition of poverty in the community. I, therefore, believe that it
is necessary to spend taxpayers’ money in investing in programs that can avert crime. On the other
hand, Democrats believe that it is not necessary to invest revenue from the government in
eradicating poverty since there is no direct relationship between crime and poverty.
