Adrienne Bell is a life-long resident of Texas, growing-up in the Houston area. Adrienne became politically active when campaigning for Barack Obama's, during which she worked for Organizing For America (OFA) Adrienne then became the Deputy Field Director for Battleground Texas, leading a field team in the Houston/Gulf Coast area.
On healthcare . . .
On her campaign website, Adrienne writes, "Americans should be able to go to the doctor, be treated in the hospital, and not become bankrupt in the process. Texas ranks as #1 in uninsured residents in the country, and all Americans deserve universal health care that is compassionate and effective. Medical insurance should not be tied to employment, nor treated as a commodity. We must take steps to treat health care as a right and establish universal health care coverage. People, families, communities, and our nation thrives when good health is a public priority."
On the environment . . .
Adrienne has a sincere interest in ending pollution caused by the overuse of plastic. During the 2018 Earth Day Celebration, she supported the End Plastic Pollution program, which focus on the elimination of single use plastics, and a plan for plastics disposals. Plastics are "now recognized as a hazard to public health, and the human body. It is also a petroleum product, which gives it a connection to climate change. Let's take personal responsibility, and help end plastic pollution."
Plans for Economy
"It is past time for Congress to hold corporations accountable to their workforce -- enacting legislation that ensures working families are able to live comfortably without having to work two or three jobs."
Adrienne believes that "educators lack the tools they need for success". They must deal with "low pay, overcrowded classrooms, and limited [and] access to technology." She writes that "for us to move forward as a nation, we must prioritize a deeper investment in our educators, on the job and community-based secondary education for adults, and quality Pre-K and K-12 programs for our children."
