Issues

Campaign themes

In a submitted bio, Frandsen described his political philosophy:[1]

Excerpt: "I believe that government allows the development of civilization and the betterment of all. Public Education is one of the most important functions of modern government and it is absolutely necessary for the success of a democracy. Education levels the playing field so that the best and the brightest can compete at all levels of society. Public education in Texas is under attack which I believe puts the future of my grand children in jeopardy. I hope to re-establish public education as a priority of state government and to establish a robust plan for maintaining consistent funding levels for public education."

He added, "Public education is not an optional expense, it is a mandatory investment in our children and our future!"
