Issues

Campaign themes

Vasquez's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Promoting Education

  • Excerpt:"As a former Teacher of the Year, Former Principal of the Year and current FWISD School Board Member, Dr. Carlos Vasquez knows firsthand what these cuts mean to our schoolchildren. Dr. Vasquez will fight hard to restore our investments in our public schools and work to open the doors of our universities to as many students as possible. "

Economic Development

  • Excerpt:"Too many graduating seniors from our high schools must leave their community to find economic opportunity. Dr. Vasquez will work to connect District 90 residents with good-paying jobs with major employers including the Alliance Corridor, DFW Airport, local universities and our own FWISD. "

A Greener Future

  • Excerpt:"All Texans deserve clean air and water. Too often environmental protection has been ignored by our policy-makers to allow polluters to make a quick buck at the expense of public health and safety. As a school board member, Dr. Vasquez led the fight to protect children from drill sites too close to schools in the face of staunch industry pressure."

Keeping District 90 Moving

  • Excerpt:"For every dollar invested in transportation, jobs are created and it results in a multiplier of positive economic impact. Dr. Vasquez supports substantial investments in transportation."
