Texas Family Project Endorses Delia Parker-Mims for Denton County Commissioner Precinct 3
Texas Family Project is proud to endorse Delia Parker-Mims for Denton County Commissioner Precinct 3.
Denton County can be found in North Texas and is the 9th most populous county in Texas. Like most suburbs in Texas it is known to be a conservative county despite the fact that its the county seat, the city of Denton, is very left leaning. Denton is one of the counties being watched this election and a strong party chair can help get more progressives elected.
As County Commissioner Delia would be responsible for roads and bridges within her precinct and make policy-making budget decisions. Here is a little bit about Delia and why we think she is the best person for the job.
"My name is Delia Parker-Mims and I’m running for Denton County Commissioner District 3. I am a SMU Law School graduate. I also trained in economics at SMU. I am a community lawyer who has helped Denton County families solve divorce, domestic-abuse, mental-health and disability problems for 25 years. As a community activist, I’ve seen how important it is for citizens to receive help at certain points in their lives."
"I decided to run because it is time to transition my experience working within the community to a larger scale. My platform is to make Denton County healthier and safer for families. Currently, juveniles with mental-health problems who act up in school often
end up in the criminal court system, increasing the likelihood they’ll enter the school-to-prison pipeline. The biggest provider for mental-health services in the county is now the jails and detention centers. That is unacceptable. Currently, we do not have a Safe-Surrender Program to take weapons out of the hands of those already deemed violent thru protective orders. A woman is five times more likely to be killed when her abuser has a weapon. That is unacceptable."
"We are experiencing a housing crisis that is paramount to our senior citizens. That is unacceptable. We have not adopted a sustainable plan to leave Denton County healthy for our posterity. That is unacceptable. Our access to voting locations is limited in certain sections of the county. This prevents us all from having a seat at the table. That is unacceptable."
"My biggest campaign needs are volunteers and funds. We need block walkers and phone bankers. Funds are always needed for literature, signs, and events." To volunteer or contribute, visit her Website , check out her Facebook, Twitter and her Instagram pages.
