Meet Craig Goldman
Goldman Brings Trump-Style Sleazy to Tarrant County
Republican State Representative Craig Goldman didn’t need his arm twisted to get on the Trump bandwagon, he virtually drove it into town. Even before Donald Trump hijacked the Republican party and became their nominee in 2016, Goldman pledged his allegiance to Trump and even called him an “an asset for the nation”. It’s no surprise, really. Goldman is a former Washington lobbyist and has always practiced the type of pay-to-play politics that fit nicely in Trump’s world.
Goldman’s decision has paid off for him – at least in the short term. By backing Trump and refusing to object to even his most vile actions, Goldman has netted tens of thousands of dollars from loyal Trump donors and been fully embraced by the most extreme and divisive GOP activists who now call the shots for Texas Republicans
Goldman's Attack on Families
Attacks on Healthcare
Craig Goldman supports repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that provides Texans with pre-existing conditions access to quality, affordable healthcare and prescription drugs. While working to dismantle the ACA, Goldman has also stood with Trump-Republicans in the Texas Legislature to block the expansion of healthcare for over 1 million Texans and 100,000 who live in Goldman’s own county.
Attacks on Public Schools
Craig Goldman has voted to cripple public schools and prevent the expansion of high-quality pre-K. At least three times, Goldman voted for private school vouchers that would shift millions of dollars away from local neighborhood public schools and give it to unaccountable private schools
Special Interests Over Fort Worth
Goldman has made sticking up for corporate special interests his priority. Craig Goldman is a former DC lobbyist. His brother is a lobbyist too. Over the years, special interest donors gave Goldman hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations while he has done their bidding in the State House. Goldman works for his insider friends and loyal Trump campaign donors at the expense of Fort Worth area families.
Trump-style Tax Loopholes
Craig Goldman joined with Trump-Republicans to give a multi-million dollar tax loophole to private plane and yacht owners - a loophole that would cost Texas taxpayers over $10 million. Instead of fighting for funding for public schools or good healthcare, Goldman wants to give our tax dollars to millionaires and deep-pocket donors.
