“In a word, I believe in opportunity,” George says. “As the son of immigrants, I was raised with the belief that the promise of our country is opportunity and that is what is due to our fellow man. That is why my parents came here.”
As a Texan, I believe our spirit is all about opportunity and I believe that is something that the 32nd Congressional District agrees on.”
“I grew up in Dallas. All of my education took place in DISD schools. I chose to attend the Government & Law Magnet High School because I wanted to be a lawyer and I wanted to grow up to make a difference.”
George received his BA from Notre Dame and graduated from SMU‘s Dedman School of Law. He is an AV- Preeminent rated lawyer based on his professionalism and ethics and the co-founder of a“Tier-1 Best” Law Firm by U.S. News and World Report.
“I see education as a community investment. As a society, we must have the mindset of investor-beneficiaries when it comes to public education. I believe in equal pay for equal work and a fair opportunity for all in our society. I believe in everyone’s right to quality health care. We should never play politics with people’s lives.”
