Positioned to Become the First African American – Ex-Offender elected to the U.S. Senate in the State of Texas
Rev. Dr. Tracy Andrus officially kicked off his grassroots campaign for U.S. Senator on March 21, 2023, in Marshall, Tx. Dr. Andrus is not a typical politician but is a Pastor, Professor and Business Owner. His platform is appealing for all Texans! Dr. Andrus during his initial stump speech, made it very clear to his supporters that he wants to be the people’s senator and represent all Texans. Andrus who spent three years in prison on a 57-year sentence for check kiting and felony theft over 30 years ago is revered as one of the most rehabilitated ex-felons in America.
After being released from prison in 1994, he earned his associate and bachelor’s degree from Louisiana College in Pineville, La a Southern Baptist University, his masters from the University of Louisiana Monroe in 2001, and became the first African American in the United States to earn a PhD in Juvenile Justice from Prairie View A&M University.
Dr. Andrus has served as the Director of the Lee P. Brown Criminal Justice Institute at Wiley College (Home of the Great Debaters) since 2006 (17 years). He is also the Pastor of the Historic Edwards Chapel B.C. in Marshall, Texas where he has served for 15 years. He is married to Dr. Sonya Burnett-Andrus who is a principal in the Marshall Independent School District. He is the father of two sons Tracy Andrus Jr and Desmond Andrus. His only daughter, Heather Mouton was killed by her husband in 2019, a case which resulted in the passing of Heather’s Law in the state of Louisiana.
Dr. Andrus is confident that he will win the primary and general election in 2024. He believes that this race will be decided based on who receives the most exposure. Andrus believes that if he can raise the funds to get his name, face and platform in the homes of Texans, he will win this election hands down. People are ready for change! People are looking for leaders who are going to lead! People are looking for bold leaders who will speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, and he is their man! Texas has approximately 40 million residents, 40% Hispanic, 38% Caucasian and 12% African American according to the Census!
What has gotten the attention of democrats, republicans, independents and Texans from all ethnicities is Dr. Andrus’ openness and honesty about the issues facing Texans! Andrus says that a vote for him is a vote for expanding pardoning powers in the state of Texas! Andrus believes that no one person or Governor should have the exclusive right to issue an executive pardon for the millions of ex-felons who have changed their lives but still live with ex-felon labels that prevents them from seeking and attaining opportunities for which they are qualified. Andrus will support federal legislation that will give pardoning powers to district judges who are in better positions to examine ex-offender rehabilitation and contributions to society! Andrus says that he will support legislation to dismantle over regulations! He told his audience that regulations are killing small business owners! People are settling for less than they are worth because they cannot afford all of the things required to start a business! You cant even buy Pex line and install a faucet in your house without a plumber! He said this is ridiculous and we wonder why there are so many dilapidated houses in certain neighborhoods. Andrus said “a fifth grader can install pex lines, yet we have to spend two to three thousand dollars to hire a plumber to do what we can do for ourselves!” Regulations have gotten out of hand and a vote for me will put an end to many of these unnecessary regulations that are making manufacturers and auditors filthy rich because you have to purchase their products.
Dr. Andrus said children cannot learn if they don’t feel safe and he will support legislation that mandate safe perimeters around schools and provide each school with the equipment necessary to keep faculty staff and students safe. If we can keep guns out of prisons and airports, we can keep them out of schools! Prisons use the three-tier perimeter system to keep contraband out and it works!
A vote for Dr. Tracy Andrus as United States Senator would be a vote for the following.:
Better access to capital for small businesses, including SBA Loans
Comprehensive immigration reform where we stop giving Hispanics ITIN Numbers and hiding them all over America. Create a clear path to citizenship for them. We will fix the Border –
Safer schools – protective layers – like prisons, we will use the three-tier system.
Expanding Pardoning Powers – No Governor should have Exclusive pardoning power (It is a set up) dangling the carrot.
Support legislation to deregulate hundreds of these unnecessary laws in Texas. (Pex Lines, Computer Repair)
Raise the salary of Teachers and Educators throughout Texas to 75K for their first-year teaching.
End Homelessness for Veterans throughout Texas. No Veteran should have to sleep outside after they have served and protected our country!
Ensure that all Texans have adequate healthcare insurance
A vote for Tracy Andrus is a vote for new Green Energy (Wind, Solar, Water Turbine etc.)
A Move to ban the box for all industries. No one should have to be questioned about the commission of a felony if they have been off of probation or parole for five years.
A vote to remove barriers to voting for ex-offenders in Texas. No Texan should be intimidated and confused as to whether they can vote or not.
When I become Senator, I will push for federal legislation that will allow all Texans to vote even if you are on probation or parole. (The founding fathers said there would be no taxation without representation).
When I am Senator, this statement will become the law of the land in Texas!
“Let me be clear, I do not condone abortions, every child is a gift from God, but I do respect a woman’s right to choose what is right for her and her body!
That is why I will support Roe V. Wade.” Dr. Tracy Andrus
A vote to allow drilling throughout Texas and in the Gulf of Mexico – While we work on renewable energy, we will be drilling oil all over Texas and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Overhaul the criminal justice system from the top down, decriminalize marijuana period, God said all herbs are good! Pass a domestic Terrorism Law to combat violence from bigots, antisemites, radical islamophobes, white supremacists, Black Jihadist and any group of people who infringe upon the rights of people.
A vote for climate change – I will sponsor and support federal legislation that will eliminate carbon pollution from power plants by 2035 and invest in infrastructure and clean energy.
In addition to running for Senate, Dr. Tracy Andrus runs a non-profit organization in Texas providing resources for those struggling with housing & food security.
