Yesterday, joined by my bride, I filed for re-election to the Texas House of Representatives.
Texas is facing many challenges; however, we are truly blessed to live in the Lone Star State, and especially in Central Texas. I’m honored to have the support of my family, friends, neighbors and constituents and, with your help, will continue serving as a conservative voice for House District 45 in the Texas Legislature.
But I can’t do it without you. If you are able, please consider making a donation to my campaign. Even just a few dollars will make the difference in getting the word out about my campaign and the work the Texas Legislature is doing to advance the conservative principles that have made our state great.
During the 84th Legislative Session, which adjourned in June, I championed legislation to “save our wells.” House Bill 3405 battled stiff opposition from out of control interests seeking to plunder, pump and profit from our groundwater. However, thanks to the involvement of many citizens who spoke out, HB 3405 passed, ensuring property rights and wells of Hays County residents are protected for generations to come.
I also received statewide praise for passing legislation limiting the length of standardized tests. After hearing from concerned parents and teachers about the anxiety children were facing regarding the length and ramifications of their standardized tests, I worked with leaders in the House and Senate to limit STAAR exams to two and three hours based on grade level.
I’m humbled to have been named a “Courageous Conservative” by the Texas Conservative Coalition for these and other accomplishments.
I’m proud of the work we’ve done in the Texas Legislature to cut property taxes, limit government, strengthen border security, preserve Second Amendment rights, improve our education system and fund transportation without raising taxes.
But more importantly, I’m proud of the people of Blanco and Hays Counties, who have come together in challenging times to help their neighbors and families recover from devastating floods twice over. It’s that resilience, selflessness and determination that inspires me every day to go to work on their behalf.
We need representatives who will continue the fight to get government out of the way and let hard-working Texans live their lives free from burdensome regulations. Please, consider contributing $50, $25, $10 or any amount you can to my campaign. My family and I are overwhelmed by the support you have shown me as your state representative these past five years.
I humbly ask for your support and look forward to continuing to serve you in the Texas Capitol.
