Mike Martinez Texas SD-10
I'm Mike Martinez running for Texas State Senator.
Family Man, Businessman and Philanthropist
I believe every Texan deserves a chance to achieve the American Dream.
I am COMMITTED to implement real change for our communities. Education continues and has always been my number one issue. I believe creating high quality early education programs that help develop the necessary cognitive, social and emotional support children need during these early years serves as a solid foundation that is essential for our children to reach their fullest potential and succeed in life. Children develop 90% of their intellect, personalities and skills by age 6. The facts are very clear, children that attend pre-school upon entering elementary school have increased reading and math skills and increased probability to graduate high school and continue onto higher learning. My voice will be loud when I fight to pay our teachers the salaries they deserve. Texas legislature must recognize the value of having art programs in our schools, computer labs so children can stay ahead of the curve in areas like technology. We need to re-design the infrastructure of education and recognize the different styles of learning that many of our children have. We need to look at education as an investment in the future of our children. As a person,who attended public school, was able to go to college and eventually build a company from the ground up. I know what it takes to succeed. The foundation starts with quality education, great teachers followed by persistent hard work and determination, in addition to unwavering support by family and friends. I want the same opportunity for every parent and child here in Texas.
I believe in equal rights, fairness and justice for all. I was raised by parents with high morals and ethics. My father served 24 years in the United States Air Force and then an additional 21 years in the United States Postal Service as a letter carrier. My mother managed two jobs, she raised three children and also worked full time for the federal government. He and my wonderful mother taught me to be honest, respect others, work hard and above all to stand up for my beliefs.
I'm excited to be running in this race and I assure you that I will work hard for your vote and support. I know you want to elect the candidate who will do the best job and has the best chance of winning in November. I will do everything in my power to prove to you that I am that choice.
COMMITTED, QUALIFIED, COMPETENT
