Catherine Krantz

TX-4 (D)
Current office holder: John Ratcliffe (R)
Catherine is an entrepreneur and publisher with twenty years of experience in economic development. Her focus is on more and better jobs, more investment in infrastructure, and more access to affordable health care and quality education, especially in small towns, and in the process aims to transform one of the country's most conservative districts.
How does Catherine align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Wealth inequality is one of Catherine's priority issues. She believes an investment in education, better job opportunities, and the guarantee of affordable health care are key to building a healthy society that benefits all. As a long-time unelected community leader, Catherine has demonstrated her commitment to this. Because of the businesses she ran in small-town Mexico, she was responsible for a big uptick in tourism there, and the creation of economic development projects fiscally benefited her community.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: As an immigrant herself--Catherine lived and worked in Mexico for fifteen years and became a Mexican citizen, a status she holds along with her American citizenship--Catherine counts immigration reform as one of her main issues. She recognizes the benefits immigrants bring to their new home countries. She seeks "reasonable immigration policies" that support immigrants.
  • Healthy People & Communities: As a native Texan who comes from a family of hunters, Catherine supports allowing guns for sport. She also recognizes mass killings as a uniquely American tragedy and believes that common sense and reason should determine gun control and solutions to gun violence, not partisan politics and special interest groups. Regarding health care, Catherine considers her three years on Obamacare "a blessing." She considers the ACA a "framework" that she wants people to keep while the details are improved.
