FT. WORTH — U.S. Congressional Candidate Tom Sanchez is vying to become the first Latino U.S. representative in North Texas history. On March 4, accompanied by friends, family and supporters, Sanchez will watch the polls from his election night headquarters at Esperanza’s Mexican Bakery & Café, 2122 N Main St., in Fort Worth.
Sanchez has declared his top priority is creating jobs: “I have a record of creating jobs. I understand how this works and every day in Congress will begin with a mission to create jobs.”
He feels likes the current tax code unfairly punishes hard working families, meanwhile millionaires like Mitt Romney only pays 15 percent. Sanchez pledges, “I will work to make our tax laws fair and equitable. I will not side with predatory
enterprises that exploit the weakest among us.”
Immigration reform is also on Sanchez’s radar, he is tired of all the talk over recent decades promising meaningful reform. However, he encourages the Hispanic community to vote in proportion to the population. If they express their voices at the ballot box, this issue can finally begin to move forward.
But he is not willing to let the issue continue to languish at the hands of an inactive Congress stating, “in the absence of any Congressional action I will be calling for changes at the Department of Justice and Administration to stop the separation of families with deportation policies that are hate-filled and designed to oppress our
The party on March 4 also will double as a 96th birthday celebration for Sanchez’s mother, Josefina Sanchez.
