Meet Dan Wood
I believe in the underdog. Wall Street Banks and Billionaires have too much power in our political system. Oppression of any class of people is just wrong. Healthcare is a right and not a privilege. It's every woman's right to control her own body. I will champion the rights of working people. America must set the example for human rights around the world.

I am a small business owner practicing law - helping people is in my nature and I will take that with me to Washington. I'm a '74 Terrell High School graduate, Texas A&M Former Student, an '86 Baylor Law grad, former Terrell city councilman and mayor pro tem, proud 2012 Democratic nominee for justice on Texas' Fifth District Court of Appeals, life-long Kaufman County resident, and husband of Laura.
