Texas Representative Jolanda Jones visits Politics Done Right to discuss the recent TEA takeover of HISD. She will have none of it.
Jolanda Jones on TEA takeover
Jones is not giving up. She said that they found an exception in the law that they could work with to prevent the takeover.
Jones said that Republicans have broken health care and public education. They’ve cut the funding that pays to keep us safe from crime – and then lied about it. They’ve made a mess of the economy and made corporations and campaign contributors even richer. They can’t even keep the lights on when it freezes.
Jolanda said that Republicans may have broken our government but they can’t break her. She is authentic and unafraid, Jolanda will never stop fighting for us.
Jolanda rose from a childhood of poverty to the Academic All American Hall of Fame, a successful career as an attorney reforming our criminal justice system, and a life of public service fighting for our kids, families and seniors.
Now Jones is carrying the torch to Austin to be a champion for affordable health care, better jobs, safer streets and stronger schools – for all of us.
