Herrera outlines his views on a number of issues on his campaign site:
Excerpt:"All bills for raising revenue considered by the Texas legislature must originate in the House of Representatives. As a Texan, I understand the burden of these escalating taxes; furthermore, as a former small business owner, I understand the frustrations of increasing local and state government demands – property and margin taxes, permits for Dumpsters, automatic alarms, signs, etc."
Excerpt:"The Texas legislature is responsible for the appropriation of all funds for the operation of state government. First and foremost, every penny should be spent wisely. Count on me to fight for tighter government spending without sacrificing services."
Excerpt:"Security is one of the most basic of needs and Texans deserve to feel secure in their state and in their homes."
Excerpt:"With a good education, one can work anywhere to earn a livelihood. Upon graduation, a student should have proficiency in reading, writing, and arithmetic, and be prepared to enter the workforce. A high school diploma should actually mean something."
Fernando ran for election to Texas House of Representatives District 148 and lost. He defeated Howard Gano, Jr. in the March 2 Republican primary and was defeated by incumbent Democratic candidate Jessica Cristina Farrar in the November 2 general election.
