I am a 35 year resident of Texas, a 15 year resident of Flower Mound, a graduate of the University of North Texas, a wife, a mother, a small business owner, a writer and advocate with a passion for looking out for the underdog, the abused, and the marginalized...
And I am one of many women and men around the nation who woke up after this last election and decided to rise up. Who decided to run. Run for something. Run for anything. Run to represent our fellow citizens, our fellow man, each and everyone one of YOU better.
And while I am running for political office, which technically makes me a politician, I'm not a politician. At least not in the most derogatory sense of the word we've all come to expect and despise. And it’s never been my life goal to be one.
But what I am is representative of YOU. I’m a human being who cares about other human beings. I’m a spouse. A parent. A person of faith. An American. A voter. A voter who is FED UP AND READY FOR CHANGE.
Someone who values what YOU value: family, freedom, equality, and security in our day to day lives, and integrity and honesty in our leadership.
Someone who cares about what YOU care about: Healthcare. Education. Equal Rights. Protecting our Children. Protecting our Environment. Providing for the common good and the safety and security of everyone within our communities.
Someone who believes that Together we CAN provide, protect, and care for our most vulnerable.
Someone who believes that TOGETHER we can PUSH BACK against all plans to turn the clocks back on Equality, Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, LGBTQ Rights.
Someone who, like you, believes WE’VE COME TOO FAR TO TURN BACK NOW, and who believes it’s in no way right that we would.
Someone who is an encourager by nature and who would encourage us all to move FORWARD together.
Work towards BETTER together.
Care for and meet the needs of our communities TOGETHER.
Because we’re STRONGER together.
If you don’t know me yet, that’s okay. We can fix that. :) But I want you to know that those who DO know me, they know my passion, they know my heart, they know my earnest desire to do right and my willingness to fight for what’s right. And they know I will bring all of that with me to Austin.
All I ask is that you vote for me and give me that chance – that chance to represent you better.
My name is Laura Haines. Vote for me to represent you better for House District 63.
