Thank you for your Support!

Rep. Raymond with his children Aren (†), Eva and Ryan.

As your State Representative, I have worked each day to make sure we pass laws, which allow all our law enforcement agencies to keep our community safe, because without safe neighborhoods, nothing else matters.  I have also worked to make sure Laredo receives as much in health care services as possible, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic -- making sure the State of Texas deployed more doctors, nurses, additional ER facilities and vaccines quickly and efficiently.  I have worked especially hard during the Pandemic, in order to save lives, because I know the pain of losing someone close, whom you love with all your heart. 

Importantly, I have worked with our schools, TAMIU and Laredo College to continue investing in our education, so more Laredoans can realize the American dream.  I have fought hard for millions of dollars in our transportation infrastructure, in order to allow international trade and our energy industry to flourish and create more jobs.  Finally, I have worked with small businesses and homeowners to fight against increases in property taxes -- taking a back seat to no one in the legislature on this issue -- because small businesses and homeowners need and deserve property tax relief!

We have all been through a lot, but through hard work, perseverance, and with the grace of God, we will make it to the other side.  If I am once again elected, I will continue working hard each and every day for all Laredoans.  I respectfully and with a heart full of hope and promise, ask for your vote, your support and your prayers, as we begin this campaign. 

Please join me in this march toward an even greater future! ¡VIVA EL FUTURO DE LAREDO!
