I'm Reverend Patrick Moses, and I'm running to serve as your congressman in Texas' 6th Congressional District.
In recent years, our country and our state have faced unprecedented hard times. Yet, in the face of a global pandemic, extreme weather, and an assault on our United States Capitol, many of our Texas leaders have left us behind. But I know there are better days ahead. We have recently ushered in a new era of leadership and progress in America, and there is still plenty of work to be done. We need leaders in Washington, D.C. who stand by North Texas values and work in our best interests, not against them.
Growing up in a single-parent household, my mother taught my four siblings and me the value of hard work. As your congressman, I will utilize my experience as a pastor at First Missionary Baptist Church in Fort Worth and as a 30-year retired executive at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to work for you.
I’m a proud Democrat, but I will never choose my party over my neighbors, my state, or my country. It’s time to stop talking over each other and listen to each other. I plan to be a congressman that works on behalf of my neighbors and small businesses, working across the partisan divide to stand up for what’s right for all of us.
"Through faith, dedication and hard work, I know that together we can transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic, rebuild our economy, and help families in our district, the great state of Texas, and America stay safe and healthy."
