Terry Meza

Terry Meza is the current Representative for State House District 105, and the Democratic candidate. A fifth generation Irving-native, Meza is a practicing attorney, a former college instructor and high school teacher, and a mother to one son. Meza’s top priorities include increasing state funding for public schools, closing the “gun show loop hole, expanding access to healthcare coverage across the state, and lowering property taxes for Texas homeowners.

Criminal Justice & Public Safety

  • “I will work to make the criminal justice system fairer for all. The best way to improve public safety is to be smart, and not just tough, about crime. This means understanding the effectiveness and potential harm of current policies (like no-knock warrants); and removing barriers to work, housing and more for those that have already served their time in prison. I partnered with re-entry programs for previously convicted criminals so they could successfully reintegrate into society and contribute to the workforce. I believe in the power of rehabilitation over punishment.”

Education Funding & Teacher Pay

  • “Every child should feel like they have a clean, safe school they can go to, but that’s not the reality today. As an educator for over 20 years, I am dedicated to fighting to rebuild and restore our public school systems.”
  • “We need to restore funding for education and redirect state dollars to better invest in teachers, educators and schools in the public school system. And we need to work to prevent school vouchers, which take away money from public schools. Every child deserves the same quality education.”

Texas Economy & Taxes

  • “Everyone deserves a fair shot at success, especially working families. I will continue to fight hard for them, for us, from better pay to more job skills development programs. I will fight for equal opportunity so everyone can thrive in our economy.”
  • “I will always fight to rebuild Texas’ strong and diverse economy. I will fight for better wages, more jobs, increased access to job skills training, and reducing property taxes so our economy can recover and everyone can begin to thrive again.”

Infrastructure & Environment

  • Access to healthy, clean drinking water is one of the greatest challenges in Texas. As climate change creates more severe and unpredictable weather patterns, it will become even more difficult to ensure everyone has safe drinking water. We must support sustainable and environment-friendly solutions, striking the right balance between energy needs and protecting Texas’ vast natural resources.
