By Dallas Morning News Editorial 2:00 AM on Jan 27, 2022 CST We recommend state Rep. Justin Holland in the Republican primary race for Texas House District 33. Find the full project here. The newly redrawn district comprises all of Rockwall County, with a western branch into Collin County. Several of them teed off on education officials during a public meeting about their school district's efforts hundreds of books from school libraries. Holland, who was first elected to this seat in 2016, is a real estate broker and a business owner in Rockwall County. The Texas Legislature did all it could to wipe out competition between the major parties in the latest redistricting. He grew up in the city and served on the Heath City Council for five years before he began his legislative career in Austin. “In Texas, the state is fighting a critical public health measure to protect our children and keep our schools safely open,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki, going out of her way to chastise the governor by pivoting from a question about a similar tussle in Virginia.

Holland, 37, currently serves as vice chair of the Sunset Advisory Commission, a term that is set to expire in 2025. Among those is state House District 70, which encompasses a section of Plano and other portions of Collin County. Another student demanded the school district"stop the censorship. We last gave our nod to Holland in 2018 because he supported a critical piece of legislation that redesigned the school finance system. We also credited him for his work as a freshman to pass bills that made it to the governor’s desk. In the Democratic field, three capable people are running, and each brings knowledge about the issues and a commitment to public service to the race. For instance, he and more than a dozen colleagues co-sponsored a bill that changed municipal annexation to require a petition or vote by the residents of the area proposed for annexation." "Wake up to the reality that we are all different and we should all embrace each other with love — not blatant hate," she added. Holland did not fill out our candidate questionnaire, and we disagree with some of his policy choices. The candidates are attorney Cassandra Garcia Hernandez, legislative director Mihaela Plesa and real estate broker Lorenzo Sanchez. Announcing a parents’ “bill of rights” last Thursday at a Lewisville charter school, for instance, he drew applause when he boasted about the order, which he said empowered parents to decide what’s best for their children.

Last year, he co-authored a bill, signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott, that prohibits Texas from enforcing new federal gun control regulations. Sanchez is not new to politics in Collin County. One student criticized officials for targeting books important to her identity, which she said has been shaped by “colonialism and the survival of my people. This editorial page supports the Second Amendment, but we question the wisdom of the state’s approach here. Hollands’ critics have dinged him for voting against a proposed amendment to House rules last year that would have banned Democrats from receiving committee chairmanships.4-point margin. The proposal was overwhelmingly voted down by state representatives, rejected for its divisiveness just as the legislative session was getting started. And the students, in many cases, are on history’s side.” Dozens of districts around Texas have sued Abbott, asserting he doesn’t have the legal authority to prevent them from imposing local masking rules intended to keep students and staff safe from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Holland and most of his colleagues made the right call. It matters, though, that a candidate put in the political time against an established incumbent. Holland has also been a critic of GOP gubernatorial candidate and former state party chair Allen West, who has used his platform to stir discord inside the Republican Party. He spoke out when West took digs at Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan and state Sen. People in the new District 70 have shown they are interested in candidates who work for solutions for Texas. Drew Springer. We think this speaks to Holland’s inclination for more constructive conservative leadership. Sanchez’s responses on key issues indicate that while he is a strong Democrat, he is cognizant that political division is becoming dangerous in this country.S.

Also running are business owner and Marine Corps veteran Dennis London, 53, and Army veteran Scott LaMarca, 52. Neither has served in elected office. On issue after issue, he showed a willingness to seek solutions to problems that don’t exacerbate that division. Both candidates argue that Holland is not conservative enough, but even though they list border security and other red-meat issues as legislative priorities, they fail to offer serious policy ideas. Holland is clearly the superior choice in this race. Plesa, 38, is a deeply informed candidate, and we agree that her years as a top legislative aide would empower her to work quickly and effectively.
