Ly, a former child refugee from Cambodia and now a certified court manager, has lived in Dallas since the age of nine. As a mother herself, Ly is determined to create infrastructure in District 24 to support future generations of children. She hopes to do this by promoting inclusivity, cracking down on gun violence without infringing on the Second Amendment and supporting efforts to lower the student loan interest rate. Above all else, Ly said she plans to run for office because she loves America. “I have utmost pride and gratitude and love for our country,” Ly said. “Commitment, honor, maybe it’s just words to them, but those words have meaning for me.”
