    Q: In your race, please list the top five talking points that you would cover in a debate with your opponents. With each talking point, please show how the Green Party's ten key values or platform would provide a solution.
    A: Then main point would be EB Johnson Has been representing Dallas for over 20 years and she has done nothing to help her district out. Dallas jobs and housi g is booming and her district has 12% unemployment and she does nothing. I would create a huge amount of jobs by having solar panels and wind turbines built and installed along the highways to create energy part of the green new deal.
    I would talk about free education past high school and into college. I will work closley with the DCCCD and the county to make it to where Dallas county residents can get their Associates Degree free from the community colleges.
    I would talk about health care I would help repeal Obama care with a county wide healthcare system with city and coounty hospitals giving free care to all county residents.
    I would talk about the welfare system and how it enslaves our citizens and I woould change it up to free them from the democrats stronghold on them. I will make electricity free to everyone through renewable resources along with internet and wireless talk text and data. With this it will free up the billions of dollars sent on paying bills and liberate the citizens to do what they love to do and not be enslaved in a job the dread just to get by paycheck to paycheck.
    I would talk about the tax system and how it is a burden on the citizens and how outdated it is. It needds to changed to liberate everyone from the intrusive government and free us from the burden of April 15th.
    I would talk about the central banking system and how outdated it is and unnessessary. It needs to be updated to a new system that will enhance the lives of everyone and not just the elite weathly banking industry.
    I can go on and on but those are just some I will talk about.

    Q: Do you believe Greens have relevance in the USA? Please list why you believe/don't believe a third party possesses relevance in the US electoral system.
    A: The greens will eventually take over and not be a third party. The millenials and the centenials are going to be green party or libertarian party people. The Republican and democrats are going to fade. With technology we can preserve the environment and make it benefit us economically where people would be crazy not to vote for the greens.

    Q: What is your experience with the consensus decision-making process?
    A: It is a fair process I would love to have a unanimous decision but I know it is very hard for everyone to agree on one thing, but if you have a very appealing argument you can win the crown and get them to agree with you.

    Q: Of the Green Party's ten key values, please list the three you feel are the most important and what relevance they offer to Texas voters.
    A: Grassroots Democracy, Texans are an amazing group of people they are very loyal to Texas and Claim the a Texan first and an American Second I feel I can tap into that Texas Pride and bring out a huge crowd to support the movement. Decentralization, the federal government is to big and bloated and is not very efficient it need to be over hauled and updated to the 21st century. Future planning and Sustainability, we.need to change many systems in our nation to keep up with the adapting Times the banking system and monetary system the tax system all need an update and an overhaul.

    Q: Do you believe Greens have relevance in the USA? Please list why you believe/don't believe a third party possesses relevance in the US electoral system.
    A: I absolutely do. I was previously a registered Democrat because I bought into the notion that I could only choose between two things that were sometimes equally unappealing. I was a strong proponent of Ralph Nader but bought into the idea that third parties were not viable in the US. Today, I realize that this belief is actually the personal abandonment of democratic principles. The reason third parties have not been relevant is because not enough of us have been willing to fight to salvage our own democratic institutions, which we have ultimately sacrificed to fascism.

    Q: What is your experience with the consensus decision-making process?
    A: My experience is positive. As one who has a nurse leadership role in the healthcare industry, I find that when everyone is engaged in solving problems, teams and groups can collectively find solutions that result in better overall outcomes. We can advocate for solutions that benefit some and not others. We may not each get 100% of exactly what we want, but unification and engagement in thoughtful dialogue helps us work through areas of disagreement. In my everyday role, by allowing each nurse to bring forward their personal experience along with evidence-based research to confront problems that impact patient care, we consider objective and subjective influence on everyday problems.
