I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the voters in District 71.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to me and my pitch for why I’d be the best person to represent you for House District 71. Though I lost, and lost by a large margin, I still greatly respect the decision that was made by the voters of District 71 by electing Stan Lambert. State Representative-Elect Lambert is a decent man that I trust will make the right decisions for our community.
I wish State Rep-Elect Lambert all the best in his efforts to work on our behalf in The Texas House of Representatives.
The show must go on, as we say in the theatre world. I took my curtain call, for this race, on November 8th, 2016, but it was not my final curtain call. We Millennials have a lot of work ahead of us. That’s why I look forward to placing my name on the ballot, again. See you all back on the campaign trail soon.
At this year’s Hispanic Leadership Council Candidate Forum in Abilene, TX, the question: “According to the U.S. Census Bureau Texas is the uninsured capital of the United States. More than 5.04 Million Texans – including 784,000 children – lack health insurance. Since Texas has chosen not to expand Medicaid or participate in the setting up a state network for providing coverage with the Affordable Care Act, what can the State Legislature do to help more Texans become insured?” The above audio, w/ picture, is the response Pierce LoPachin (D-Abilene), running for State House District 71, explained to the audience.
