Your Democratic Nominee for 2022
Vote in the general election, Nov. 8, 2022
Transparent and Responsive Leadership
I’m running to represent Texas schools because if the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that the problems in Texas’ education system didn’t start at the beginning of the virus. The virus has only amplified these problems.
When I’ve spoken to teachers and parents across the state, one common theme is the same: teachers are not given the resources that they need. It’s shameful, and we must do everything we can to support our schools.
I’m running for this position because our community needs transparent and responsive leadership. I will ensure the voices of my community are listened to—and that our schools have the necessary resources to implement the desires of the community.
- Alex Cornwallis, Democrat for State Board of Education, Place 12
Showing up matters.
One of Alex’s most important traits is knowing the power of showing up. That’s why he has continued to be an advocate for students and teachers alike, not just in Urban areas of the district, but Suburban and rural areas as well. He believes every student, family, and school district is unique, which is why he is working tirelessly to bring all of the voices together to ensure all of the resources are available depending on the varying needs.
The State Board of Education, Place 12 is one of the most diverse districts in the country, so it is crucial to have a board member who is actively engaging communities across the district to ensure they are receiving the support they need to be successful.
Building Bridges of Opportunity
Alex believes that now it is time for him to give back. He feels that he can best do that by leveraging his natural ability to bring people together, evaluate complex problems and develop solutions that move everyone forward, and use his knowledge of the technology that is building the future, to prepare schools, students, and parents for what comes next on a competitive global scale.
That means bringing in an updated curriculum that will create a bridge of opportunity for students to explore, learn and be successful for the future. It also means sometimes having to collaborate with other representatives from local, state, and federal agencies to ensure the school districts are being supplied with the resources they need.
