Issues

Campaign themes

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

Strengthening Public Education

  • Excerpt:"As State Representative, I will demand the State fund schools appropriately and honor its obligation to pay our schools on time.

To stop schools from cutting teachers and programs that help students, I will fight for a law limiting school district administrative expenses and requiring 85% of revenue to be spent on educating our kids." Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt:"We must provide financial incentives to encourage companies to hire unemployed workers and expand their operation in Texas, and foster investments in new technology and the green economy to create good paying jobs. Corporations that receive tax breaks and then move jobs out of the state must be held accountable by requiring them to refund their tax breaks while making them ineligible for future tax incentives."

Protecting Seniors

  • Excerpt:"I know that maintaining independence means everything to older adults. I will support property tax assistance and funding for home care programs that help senior citizens to stay in their homes. I will also push for tougher criminal penalties against those who defraud the elderly."

Reforming the Budget Process

  • Excerpt:"We must learn to live within our means and maximize every hard earned tax dollar. It is time to go through the budget line by line and reduce spending. We must put an end taxpayer funded programs that aren’t working and taxpayer funded jobs that are unnecessary or duplicative. We must find and eliminate fraud and waste at all levels of government."
