Cheryl Bean on Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement

I am a strong supporter of law enforcement and oppose the "Defund the Police" movement. I believe in the rule of law and appreciate the dedication of law enforcement officers who work tirelessly to maintain safety and security. As a candidate, I am committed to advocating for the resources and policies that support our law enforcement community in their crucial role.

School Choice

School Choice

As a member on the board of a charter school, and as a parent and grandparent myself, I believe strongly in educational freedom and giving parents the power to decide what school is best for their children. Opportunity for a quality education should not be exclusive. Every child should be given the chance to succeed. Additionally, we owe it to the future generation to safeguard their innocence by keeping explicit material out of their young hands.

Upholding the Freedoms of Life & Liberty

Texas is now the most pro-life, pro-gun, pro-freedom state in the nation. We fought hard to get here, and the left is going to fight just as hard to roll back those freedoms. We can’t let our guard down when it comes to protecting our God-given constitutional rights.

Property Tax in Texas

Lowering Taxes & Helping Small Business

There is no question that property taxes in Texas are high. Texans everywhere– especially homeowners and small businesses— are demanding solutions. I know because I see it every day in my own home build and development business. We need to keep Texas moving in a prosperous direction, and the only way to do that is to keep taxes and regulations low.

Election Integrity

In our democratic society, the sanctity of the electoral process is paramount. It’s the thread that weaves together our freedom and governance. My commitment to political and election integrity is rooted in the belief that fair and transparent elections are the foundation of our democracy.

Texas Border

Texas Border Security

It is an undisputed fact that an insecure border leads to insecurity within the entire state. I agree with Gov. Abbott that we should complete the physical barrier between Texas and Mexico in order to fight against the drugs, human trafficking, and illegal immigration that threatens the security of Texas residents.

Defending Texans from Foreign Threats

Texas is suffering under a broken border. Drugs and human traffickers are pouring into our state. China is staking claim our land. With experience in the defense industry, I understand what it takes to protect our state from foreign threats. We need to act smart and act now to stop the crisis at the Mexico-United States Border from becoming dangerously irreversible and to keep foreign threats out of our state.

District 97 is located Southwest of Fort Worth and covers the Benbrook and Crowley areas. Craig Goldman previously held the seat and has left it to run for Congress. Cheryl will face two opponents in the Republican primary, which is projected to have a turnout of 25,000 voters.

State of the Race

In the first 24 hours of the campaign, Cheryl Bean for Texas 97th team raised $100,000 in the fight to represent your values. Shortly after this campaign launched, Cheryl was awarded major endorsements from Tarrant County Judge Tim O’Hare, Former State House Representative Matt Krause, current State Representative Nate Schatzline, the immediate past Chairman of the Tarrant County GOP, and Texas Values.

Cheryl Bean will toe the line on the most conservative issues that Texans care about but also has the experience necessary to get the job done.
