Making Government Responsive To You

Creating High Paying Jobs

During his time in the legislature, Philip worked to attract better paying jobs, improve employment rates, and give small business owners the ability to be competitive. He also sponsored legislation to prevent small businesses from losing billions in federal funding and worked to support Port San Antonio.

Improving Our Schools

We need to ensure that our children are never short-changed, that we provide needed resources for our teachers, and make sure that we have classrooms where students can succeed. Philip’s strong committment to education has been evident: he fought to restore over $4 billion in public school funding, lower the reliance on high stakes testing, and ensured that state funding would be available for students who look to earn college credits while still in high school.

Support Our Veterans

Every day, our nations finest put their lives on the line to ensure that our families are able to enjoy our freedoms. We must support them when they are in the field, when they come home, and in retirement. While previously serving as our State Representative, Philip has worked to make it easier for returning veterans to find jobs, fought for increased funding for the Texas Veterans Commission, and helped pass constitutional amendments lowering property taxes for disabled veterans.

Protect our Senior Citizens

By pushing for legislation to decrease the burdens on seniors receiving Medicaid and supporting legislation to prevent abuse and neglect of people receiving home health care, Philip is making certain that those who have made our community great are able to live their golden years in comfort.
