Dorotha Ocker - Democrat
I'm an eighth-generation Texan, second-generation Aggie, who grew up in a cotton farming family in South Texas. Through hard work and the excellent Texas school system, I earned a seat at Stanford Law School. I came back home to Texas and started my own business in Carrollton. I want all Texans to have the same opportunities that I had when I grew up in our Great State. Send me to the Texas Legislature to fight for neighborhood schools, equal pay, and local control.
