RICHMOND, TX – Representative Jacey Jetton announces his office’s priorities for the 2022 calendar year. Jetton plans to focus on the “building blocks of a community,” empowering Texans to make the right decisions for their families and ensuring they have the opportunities to do so. Jetton is a Representative for Fort Bend County, one of the largest and most diverse counties in Texas.
“Texas is the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family,” Representative Jetton said. “Texas families want their elected officials to focus on the building blocks of a community that empower Texans to make the right choices for their families. The building blocks of a community include education, infrastructure, and safe communities. My team is committed to empowering Texas families to raise their kids, provide for their families, leave a legacy they’re proud of, and lead in their communities. We will draft and support good policies that support these ideals, serve the people of Texas, and communicate well with our constituents.”
Jetton was appointed by Speaker Dade Phelan to the Commission on Special Education Funding and served as a Texas delegate to the Hunt-Kean Institute on education in Washington D.C. Issues like highway improvements, flood mitigation, funding for law enforcement, securing the border, and combatting human trafficking have also been consistent components of Jetton’s legislative and communications portfolio.
Jetton is also seeking feedback from all Texans on the concerns and opportunities they see in their communities. Individuals with ideas, questions, or concerns about how to improve the lives of their families and their fellow Texans are encouraged to complete the online form available here.
Jacey Jetton supports securing our border, ensuring dangerous criminals are not immediately released back into our communities. He will fight to end human trafficking in Texas and ensure law enforcement has the resources they need to keep Texas a safe place to live, work, and raise a family.
It’s time to get politics out of classrooms, so that teachers can teach, children can learn, and parents can decide what’s best for their children. Whether it is public, private, or home school, parents must be involved in their children’s education.
Jacey Jetton stood in the middle of the fight for election integrity in the Texas Legislature and took crucial actions to secure our elections. There is no doubt that today, in Texas, our elections are more secure than they have ever been, and it is easy to vote and hard to cheat.
Property taxes are too high. Some Texans are losing their homes due to the ever-increasing property tax burden. Jacey supports eliminating portions of property taxes until it is completely abolished. Temporary relief is not enough.
The growth in our region has backed up our highways, put a strain on our water system, and caused new areas to flood during major rain events. Jacey will continue to work with local, state, and federal officials to make needed infrastructure updates and prepare for future growth.
