Let's turn 62 BLUE!

Meet Valerie Hefner

Valerie Hefner is a Sherman native, a daughter of immigrants, and an incredible example of the American Dream in action. Her concern over the futures of her two children who both suffer from pre-existing medical conditions, as well as the future of her husband, a disabled veteran, motivated her to run for office to represent the concerns of other working middle-class citizens.

“As a mother and a wife, I know the struggle of working families. We need a strong voice in Austin. As a representative I will protect your right to buy insurance, even if you have a preexisting condition. We need to focus on people first. Focus on our schools, our healthcare, and our neighbors.”

Hefner’s children attend Sherman public schools, and she plans to refocus the legislature’s attention away from scapegoating vulnerable children, and onto funding classroom teachers. “We need to strengthen, not abandon, the promise of public education. Our students deserve a safe place to learn.”

Hefner’s focus is also on rights for marginalized groups including the LGBTQ community and immigrants. “My family experiences have taught me that inclusion makes us stronger. We need to welcome, not attack, new members of our communities.”

Valerie is convinced that Grayson, Fannin, and Delta counties can have a bright future. “I believe in people first. Help me turn District 62 blue!”

The Democratic primary election is March 6, 2018

Standarized tests do not take into account the many different variables that each ISD faces when educating a diverse population. It's a waste of millions of dollars a year and does nothing but terrorize our #Students and #texaseducators.

I couldn’t agree more! Teachers shouldn’t have to dumb down a curriculum jut so they can teach a test that has nothing to do with anything and won’t give them any extra skills or knowledge in life. It’s completely ridiculous!

#amen. Hated those tests

My grandson always does well on these tests but he becomes physically ill prior to the testing. I hate those tests. All children are different and these tests put them all into one category.

This is a policy that I can support. This is the reason we need to vote for Valerie Hefner in November
