In this episode of the podcast Democrat Texas Political Candidate Claire Campos-O'Neal joined me to discuss Texas politics more specifically education policies. Check out their website https://gobehindtheballot.com/. These conversations dive deep into the proposed Voucher system for Public Education, Sex in Schools & the inefficiencies of Texas public education currently.
Claire Campos-O’Neal, mother to two young boys, daughter of a first generation Mexican-American, is the co-host of Go Behind the Ballot.
In November of 2021, she put her name on the ballot and ran for office for the first time for House District 51. While she didn't win the race, she learned a great deal about her community, the inner workings of local politics and the importance of putting yourself out there.
This act of courage propelled Claire to launch a podcast 'Go Behind the Ballot' with her co-host Nichole Abshire. Together they strive to demystify Texas politics one issue at a time. Their show is non-partisan, pro-democracy, conversational and always edu-taining.
In Claire's free time she volunteers as the President of the Del Valle Education Foundation. She is passionate about ensuring that Texas students have access to high quality public education and every opportunity to succeed in school.
