Jana is the first Democrat to run a credible campaign against Rep. Joe Barton, who has been in the TX-6 seat for 33 years. Her campaign has already raised more money in the first part of the primary than any Democrat running against Barton raised through the primary and general for about 30 years.
Jana Lynne Sanchez grew up in the Ellis County, Texas small towns of Maypearl, Midlothian and Waxahachie. Her grandparents, migrant farm workers, settled in Rockett, outside of Waxahachie, in the 1950s. Her grandfather was an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who lived in the U.S. most of his life, before becoming a citizen in 1969. Her father, one of 27 children, grew up on the road and had little formal education.
Jana Lynne attended Rice University in Houston on multiple scholarships and thanks to financial aid, student loans, work-study jobs, and the support of family. After graduating from Rice with a degree in Political Science, she went on to work as a political fundraiser, an journalist, and a foreign correspondent.
WHY I AM RUNNING
By Jana Lynne Sanchez
I have always been a person who likes to solve problems – to see an opportunity and seize it. Texas District 6 is made up of almost three-quarters of a million people from all walks of life – employees, business owners, students, homemakers and others. I will do my best to represent all of their best interests in a time when the world is extremely divided on political, religious and social grounds. I want to remove special interests and the extreme ideology of both sides, and focus on job creation and core Texas values of prosperity and opportunity, independence, freedom, and doing what is right.
I’ve led a truly blessed life. I grew up in Maypearl, Midlothian, and Waxahachie. I went away to Rice University on scholarships and financial aid and with the help of family. I am grateful for the experiences I have had living all over the country and in Europe: I will bring what I’ve learned to serve the people of this district.
I am a self-employed businesswoman who has never had any aspirations to run for office before now. I see a district that is in dire need of an ethical and competent representative truly accountable to the people of the district.
I believe citizen representatives should go to D.C. and represent our interests for only a short time, and then return to the district to continue serving. I am fully in support of strict term limits.
