All candidates for Texas House of Representatives District 76 Republican primary complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

All three candidates running in the March 5, 2024, Republican primary for Texas House of Representatives District 76 — Dayo David (R), Summara Kanwal (R), and Lea Simmons (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.

Here are the candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?


“Texas is currently experiencing a shortage of mental health and recovery care providers. As a person who has worked with people with mental and physical disability, I am quite passionate about taking care of the vulnerable and the disabled in our communities. I will advocate for policies that takes care of all Texans, especially the vulnerable ones among us.”


“No grooming of young kids in school.”


“I am passionate about social justice, human rights, healthcare, education for children that will help them have a better chance of a better lifestyle and future, for years to come. I feel the need to listen to the elderly, to the Veterans, show empathy towards the homeless, and I strongly believe that the family is important to the success of a happy home. I want to reach out to the local government, to the municipalities, to the judicial branch, to the schoolteachers and to the students. I am concerned about freedom of speech, religion, and protecting life.”
