Texas House of Representatives District 64

Lynn Stucky

Lynn Stucky is the current Representative for State House District 64, and the Republican Candidate. A practicing Veterinarian Lynn Stucky is a former President for Sanger ISD Board of Trustees and current member of Denton Chamber of Commerce, and a father to four children. Stucky’s top priorities include reducing property taxes for Texas homeowners, securing the Texas border and putting an end to human trafficking across the state.

Criminal Justice & Public Safety

  • “The biggest crime with immigration is human trafficking.”
  • “It’s important for State and Local officials to provide resources to the community, like funding programs that help teachers recognize the signs of a child who is being targeted or exploited for human trafficking. They also need to work with federal officials to provide appropriate measures of public safety and security for communities throughout the state.”
  • “There are many aspects of gun violence that can be addressed by simply educating both children and adults about responsible ownership and safe handling.”

Education Funding & Teacher Pay

  • “As a former school board president, Dr. Stucky knows first-hand that the worst form of education imaginable is a top-down approach, so he went to Austin to ensure our schools were adequately funded and then to fight for decisions about those funds to be made at the local level.”
  • “Dr. Stucky co-authored House Bill 21 in the 85th legislature's special session which created a Texas Commission on Public School Finance. This is the first step towards finally ending the Robin Hood school finance system entirely and changing the way public schools are funded.”
  • “[Stucky is] opposed to any form of vouchers. The proposals I have seen all are vulnerable to fraud and abuse, which will not protect or benefit Texas students.”
  • “Standardized tests should be reduced or completely eliminated in order to provide an education that prepares Texas students for the real world and the tools to compete in a modern economy.”

Texas Economy & Taxes

  • “Stucky co-authored House Bill 3 which provides almost $5 billion in property tax relief to homeowners and property owners across the state.”
  • “[Stucky] co-sponsored Senate Bill 2 which reforms the property tax system to make it more transparent. It provides real-time tax information to inform property owners who is proposing to raise their rates, by how much, and when and where they can go to protest.”

Healthcare

  • “Dr. Stucky helped pass SB 1264 to protect consumers from surprise medical billing, also known as “balance billing.”
  • “In 2019, SB 1096 improved medication access for kids with disabilities by prohibiting prior authorizations or any other barriers from being used to negatively impact a child's access to care and streamlines the prior authorization process when a child is hospitalized.”

Angela Brewer

Angela Brewer is the Democratic Candidate for State House District 64. A fifth-generation Texan and daughter of a U.S Army Nurse, Brewer currently serves as an Adjunct Professor of Communications at Collin College. Brewer’s top priorities include guaranteeing access to safe and well-equipped schools for all Texas children, expanding access to affordable, quality health care for ALL Texans, and increasing equality in our legal systems as well as in our Texas workforce.

Criminal Justice & Public Safety

  • “Support cities’ efforts to build police departments that work in partnership with the communities they serve and that work to increase officer job satisfaction and morale.”
  • “Reform the criminal justice system by ending cash bail, ending long-term solitary confinement and youth solitary confinement, restoring voting rights to those who have served their time, and passing a Clean Slate Act to seal the criminal records of non-violent offenders who stay out of trouble, giving them a chance to return to the workforce and rebuild their lives.”
  • “Texas leads the country in gun violence deaths with 9 Texans dying from gun violence every day — we can change that. Angela is ready to fight for sensible gun laws and is a proud Moms Demand Action Gun Sense candidate and has been endorsed by Everytown for Gun Safety.”

Education Funding & Teacher Pay

  • “We must guarantee access to safe and well-equipped schools for all children.”
  • “Early childhood education lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning — Angela will fight for universal pre-K for all four year olds.”
  • “Texas needs well-rounded students who enjoy their school day. We can increase learning and attendance by increasing recess time, funding arts, physical education, and electives programs, and supporting vocational and technical education for high school students.”
  • “We should increase access to, and financial aid for, vocational and technical training programs to help prepare our diverse workforce to meet the needs of 21st century Texas.”

Texas Economy & Taxes

  • “Hard working Texans deserve good jobs, safe workplaces, and a voice in their labor. Our economy currently helps the rich get richer, while ordinary folks work harder and harder to barely make ends meet. It is time for every Texan to see the fruits of their labor.”
  • “Raising the minimum wage.”
  • “Reigning in payday and predatory lenders.”

Healthcare

  • “Every Texan has a right to affordable, quality health care. Taking the federal Medicaid expansion, which would get 1.6 million Texans on health insurance.”
  • “Ending surprise billing practices.”
  • “Controlling the costs of prescription drugs.”
  • “Increasing access to affordable, quality mental health care and work toward mental health care parity.” (need to remove one)
  • “Twenty years of elected officials cutting public health budgets and ignoring the problems in state government put Texas in an impossible situation when faced with a public health crisis. [...] The 87th Legislature must work to rebuild state agencies so that they can effectively serve Texans in good times and take the lead to protect Texans during disasters.”

Reproductive/Women’s Health

  • “I stand with Texas women to protect and promote reproductive health care.”
  • “A woman’s access to health care and family planning is directly tied to the success, happiness, and stability of her family and her community. Angela stands proudly with women and their right to make fully-informed healthcare decisions free from the interference of the Texas Legislature.”
  • “Working to reduce the maternal mortality rate in Texas, which is currently the highest in the country.”

Government Transparency & Ethics

  • Online and same-day voter registration.
  • Universal vote by mail.
  • The end of political gerrymandering in favor of drawing fair redistricting maps.
  • Campaign finance reform, including caps on political donations.
  • Adoption of voting machines that use paper ballots and systematic audits of vote totals during every election to ensure election security.
  • Joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact to guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who wins the popular vote.
  • Adding robust civics education to the pre-K through 12th grade curricula.

Infrastructure & Environment

  • We are quickly running out of time to stop the damage we are doing to our planet, but if we get to work right away, there is still hope. Angela is proud to be endorsed by the Sierra Club and is eager to get to work on the legislative agenda needed immediately to stop climate change and to begin repairing the damage we have caused.
  • Defending citizens’ rights to help shape environmental policy, including reversing House Bill 40 that stopped Denton from banning natural gas fracking in our city. HB 40 severely limited local control for all Texas communities, tying the hands of our citizens, of city councils, and of county commissioners to respond to local environmental needs.
  • Stopping fracking under Lake Lewisville.
  • Increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources in Texas which will create thousands of jobs.
  • Planning for the water supply needs Denton County’s growth will demand in the next decade, including adequate funding for the Texas Water Development Board, citizen participation in planning and conservation, and developing responsible water supply solutions.
