Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Hernandez's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Employment
Excerpt: "Receiving more investment from our state will better train our workforce to improve our employment rate and to increase the availability of jobs with higher paying wages."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Our students do not receive the same amount of funding as students from other parts of our state. As we have in the past, we must continue to challenge this inequity by using our court system, but, more importantly, we should first and foremost have representatives who make this issue their priority."
  • Veterans Issues
Excerpt: "As our troops return home from fighting over seas, we must remember that they have served our country and our area in the most honorable way possible."
  • Infrastructure and Drainage
Excerpt: "As urban sprawl continues, more residences will be located in lower planes of our area. More levies and canals are needed to ensure we have proper drainage."
