Here’s some statements from Brent on a few different issues:
I don’t want for-profit companies running public schools. I want us to do a better job funding our public schools. I believe we—as a society—should make sure that every child can get a quality public education. Our teachers need our support and should be respected as professionals.
I want folks that work hard and play by the rules to have a chance to get ahead a bit. Slowly, over time, those with money and power in our society have changed the rules—a little change here, a little change there—so now it’s harder and harder for the average person to make it.
The U.S. (as of 2013) has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Our current system needlessly ruins lives and is incredibly expensive. We need to make significant changes to how we define criminal behavior and how we punish those who engage in it.
If you need medical care, you should be able to afford it. Infants and seniors need the most care, but are the least able to afford it. We must manage the competing interests of drug companies selling sickness with insurance companies denying as much as they can in order to receive quality care.
Brent has served in different leadership roles over the years, although this is his first campaign for public office. He firmly believes in smart, effective government that reflects the priorities and values of its citizens.Read More
Why We Support Brent
I think it is past time we have someone in CD-1 that represents all the people in the District and not just a select few, I believe Brent will listen to all of the people and bring respect back, his ability to listen &communicate ask Constituents how he can help families with Healthcare, paying for Education, helping Teachers receive pay raises. Brent has generated more interest than any other Candidate since Gohmert was elected.
With all of the pressing policy issues—like healthcare and rural poverty-- facing our country and especially our 1st Congressional district, we need to elect a smart, serious person to represent us. Brent Beal is smart, serious, and hardworking, and he listens to us and understands the challenges we face. Please join me in supporting Brent.
For too long, Louie Gohmert has not only represented us poorly in Washington, but also been a major embarrassment to East Texas. I can't think of a better person to replace him than Brent Beal. Brent is a wonderful father and husband, a hard-working business professor, and a person that truly cares for East Texans and the needs that we have. He is down-to-earth and highly approachable, but also one of the smartest people I know. I am proud to call Brent a close friend, but I also want to call him my congressman. You should too.
I am supporting Brent Beal for Congress because East Texas has gone without effective representation in Congress for far too many years. Brent is intelligent, committed and hard-working. He would be a strong voice for this district’s residents at a time in our political history when it is sorely needed.
