Kendra is a mother of two, a wife of 14 years, career educator and community activist. Her family has deep roots across the district from Lindale to the Heights to the Near Northwest/Oak Forest area, where she has resided for the last 36 years. She is committed to an attention to detail approach of problem-solving for the state, city and its’ constituents.
Kendra believes in investing in families, communities, and safety. To do this, she plans to:
• Provide communication and transparency with the voters on issues that will impact them. Empower the voices of the community by including diverse perspectives that will lead to the development of good public policy based on everyone’s experiences. Our office will be dedicated to bringing updates and public meeting information to our neighbors in District 148 to ensure they have a voice. We will also work with leaders all across to address constituents’ needs.
• Give local school district and schools the autonomy to address both the academic and social needs of students. We know that students struggle academically in school when their basic needs are not met. It is imperative that we continue to invest in schools, teachers, nurses, counselors, and support staff by developing legislation that focuses on providing support to the child’s overall well being.
• Ensure that our state is financially responsible with taxpayers’ hard earned money. Making sure our basic needs, like education, clean air and water, women’s health, flood mitigation and more are highlighted in our state budget.
