Campaign themes


Willis' campaign website lists the following issues:[2]

  • People First Through Better Education
Excerpt: " As a scientist and professor, Buck has seen the challenges faced by educators and students alike. Surviving a plane crash even the FAA called “un-survivable,” education gave him a sense of purpose."
  • People First by Paying a Higher Minimum Wage
Excerpt: "Our workers need a “survival” minimum wage of $11/hr. which will allow them the time and room for further education, technical training, and apprenticeships for a lifetime of higher earnings."
  • People First by Bringing More Jobs in the Fourteenth Congressional District
Excerpt: " Buck has gathered a collaboration of experts to draft a proposal to bring a Federal Desalinization Plant to the area. It’s believed that the plant could bring thousands of new, high paying jobs to the area."
  • People First by Supporting Individual Rights
Excerpt: " It is time to trust people’s decisions. As your congressman, Buck will fight for the rights of all people. He trusts Texas Women to make all of their informed health care decisions with their physician."
  • People First by Being Prepared
Excerpt: " Hurricane Ike devastated thousands of lives, and Buck supports programs to keep you and your family safe, including programs like the “Ike Dike” or levy systems. It’s time for fair flood and hurricane insurance rates."
