Campaign Themes

Koop's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Create Jobs

  • Excerpt: "It is a blessing to live in Texas, where even the smallest of businesses can grow, create jobs and provide for countless families. Together, let's continue to keep our business atmosphere strong!"

Protect Texas From Obamacare

  • Excerpt: "Now more than ever, we need conservative values and a workable approach that puts Texas families first. As your state representative, I will do everything in my power to stop Obamacare and protect your ability to make your own health care decisions."

Strong Local Schools

  • Excerpt: "We have many shining examples of excellent ISD's in our community and as a state representative, I will work to increase local control for all the ISD's in our district. Together we will give parents, teachers, and most importantly, students, the tools they need to succeed."

Reliable Water Supply

  • Excerpt: "As a Dallas City Council Member, I garnered top experience working on our key water issues for eight years. I know the challenges facing Richardson, Dallas, Garland and Addison. I have shared in living through water restrictions and also worked to provide services to hundreds of neighborhoods. As your state representative, I will put my experience to work and ensure that our community will always have the water it needs to grow and thrive. "

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt: "We all have a responsibility to uphold the law of the land and ensure that we don’t incentivize people to break it. That’s why I strongly believe we must secure our borders and hold companies responsible for hiring illegal immigrants. The pathway to citizenship cannot be paved with broken promises. We must uphold the rule of law. "
