Major Campaign Announcement

September 28, 2021

Friends, as we know the Democrats in Texas have fully embraced the radical agenda of their national party and are promoting policies that are dangerous to public safety and a threat to individual liberty. They want to open our borders, defund the police, wreck our oil and gas industry and manufacturing base, increase taxes, and push their “woke” social agenda on all of us.   It is more critical than ever for Texas to fight back and vigorously defend conservative principles in our state. 

As State Representative, that’s my record.  Now, because of the redistricting process which takes place every ten years, there is an opportunity to continue that fight in the Texas Senate.  A new Texas Senate map has added a portion of Parker County in Senate District 10 – a district currently represented by a liberal Democrat from Tarrant County.  

After prayerful consideration with Terry and my family, should this map be adopted, I will make a formal announcement that I will be running for this seat in the Texas Senate.   

Though we have lived in Parker County for over 38 years, Terry and I were raised in Tarrant County; in fact, I graduated from Eastern Hills and Terry graduated from Southwest.  Our first child, Kristy, was born when we lived in Meadowbrook.  I served as a Fort Worth police officer for 15 years and have deep roots throughout the district. 

As a state representative, I have served urban, suburban and rural communities and understand the issues unique to each.  I promise to run a strong campaign to defend our Texas values and our freedom.  I’m pleased that since announcing my candidacy, I’ve already been endorsed by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Rick Perry, former Governor and Secretary of Energy under President Trump (see endorsements below).  

My family and I are richly blessed from the support of so many friends and neighbors like you who have supported us throughout my service in the Texas House.   As we begin this new adventure, Terry and I sincerely ask for your continued support, but most importantly your prayers.
