Former Member Finds Opportunities in Passion for Policy    
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 | Author: Lani Pieper, Texas FFA News Staff

Former Waxahachie FFA member, James Mismash, is pursuing his passion for politics with a proactive ambition for change.

“Policy can have such a unique, yet grand impact on such a large amount of people,” said Mismash. “Since that realization, I have focused my studies, work, and extracurriculars on how politics of the past and present affect the people of the world.”

Since graduating from high school in 2017, Mismash has interned with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, Texas Legislative Budget Board, the Office of the Texas Speaker of the House and is currently a Budget Fellow with the Office of the Governor of Texas. 

“I worked with the Texas House of Representative’s top policy experts during the [this past session] interim and was able to work on a few unique research projects,” said Mismash. 

As a Government and History double major, Mismash hopes improvements can be made for the future of Texas policy.

“If Democrats and Republicans alike continue to be more and more willing to converse and debate, then ideally our policy will improve,” Mismash said. “My hope for the Texas government is that the citizens feel stronger senses of responsibility and that civic engagement rises. The more that vote and let their voices be heard, the more likely it is that policy will reflect the people's wishes.”
