Serving as your state representative requires a great deal of sacrifice, hard work and long hours, but I sincerely appreciate every minute of it, and I’m humbled to have the privilege to serve as your voice in the Texas Capitol. I stand asking for the honor to continue to serve you.
With encouragement from the constituents we serve and after prayerful reflection, Shelby and I decided that I will seek re-election to continue to be your state representative
As a candidate, I vowed to fight for tax relief, promote life and protect the Second Amendment. When I took office, that’s exactly what I did. I co-authored a bill that gives hard-working Texans almost $4 billion in tax relief. I filed a pro-life bill, signed into law by Gov. Abbott, which will prevent hundreds of abortions each year. I also co-authored H.B. 910, widely viewed as the greatest protection of Second Amendment rights in Texas in more than a century.
Gov. Abbott called our work “the most conservative legislative session that we’ve ever seen” in Texas. I’m proud to have played a key role in the effort.
With your guidance, I was steadfast in being true to West Texas. I was born here, my wife and I raise our family here, and I will never stop fighting for West Texas. Even when my own political interests could be better served by taking an easy way out, I stood up and fought for West Texas.
But as I stand for re-election, I refuse to simply rest on my record as a battle-proven conservative who is West Texas true. There is more work to be done, and as I’ve shown, I’ll put in the time to do it. We must continue to keep the tax burden low, protect our Constitutional rights and push back against mounting federal overreach.
Talk however, is cheap. In the 115 days since the legislative session ended, I’ve been back home and attended 107 events to interact with the public and visit with constituents. Even if we disagree on an issue, I’ll be available to discuss it with you and listen to your concerns.
Aside from my faith and my family, serving as your state representative is the most important thing in my life. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve. In the coming months, I will continue my interaction with you to reaffirm your trust and support.
May God bless you and your family, and may God forever bless Texas!
