Imam earned a master's degree in electrical and computer engineering from Purdue University and a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Trine University. Her professional experience includes working as a computer engineer and tech entrepreneur. Imam has served as board president of ProductCamp Austin. Since deciding to run for office, she spent time looking at the issues facing Texas’ 31st District and talking to those in the community. From this, she developed her original policy proposals.
Her platform includes: "healthcare assurance which will boost productivity and reduce debt; high-skilled education opportunities leading to increased incomes: pay for value created, so families can live where they work".
On healthcare . . .
On her campaign website, Donna writes, "Healthcare for All policy (HCA) is a single-payer plan that fortifies and accelerates Medicare for All (M4A), drastically lowering the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs. HCA scales healthcare infrastructure, delivers higher quality care, and is cheaper than what we pay today. With HCA if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor."
On the environment . . .
Donna writes, that "climate change is impacting our health, water, and food supply. Corporations and commercial fishing are the largest source of pollutants and plastics in the ocean. We need to diversify our energy sources with renewables, incentivize carbon neutral solutions, invest in research to mitigate climate change, and institute sustainable farming and fishing practices."
Plans for Economy
Donna believes that "pay should reflect value created . . . picking an arbitrary number for minimum wage and pretending to run a so-called profitable business on the backs of people who can’t afford basic needs is not capitalism. Donna's Real Pay for All (RPA) policy proposal ensures that Americans thrive and not just survive."
"Inadequate access to higher education is the single biggest threat to America's national security. Donna's Education for All (EDA) policy proposal ensures everyone in the United States can go to college, trade schools, or certification programs without being in debt forever."
