AUSTIN --- State Representative Brooks Landgraf officially filed for re-election on Saturday, the first day possible to file the necessary paperwork.
“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,” Representative Landgraf said. “I’m humbled to have the privilege to serve my hometown and I stand asking for the honor to continue to serve you.”
Landgraf had a very successful first legislative session, which produced an unprecedented $4 billion tax relief package, increased border security, protected the unborn and expanded Second Amendment rights. Governor Greg Abbott called Landgraf’s hard work part of “the most conservative legislative session that we’ve ever seen” in Texas.
“I was born in Odessa, my wife and I raise our family here, and I will never stop fighting for West Texas and our conservative principles,” Representative Landgraf said.
As a candidate back in 2014, Landgraf vowed to fight for tax relief, ensure border security, promote life and protect the Second Amendment. After being sworn in to office, he delivered results during the 2015 legislative session. Landgraf co-authored the bill that gives hard-working Texans almost $4 billion in tax relief. He worked to help pass the largest border security bill in the country. He authored pro-life legislation, signed into law by Gov. Abbott, which will prevent hundreds of abortions each year. He was also instrumental in the success of H.B. 910, widely viewed as the greatest protection of Second Amendment rights in Texas in more than a century.
“As I stand for re-election, I refuse to simply rest on my record as a battle-proven conservative who is West Texas true,” Representative Landgraf said. “There is more work to be done for the future of Texas, and as I’ve shown, I’ll work tirelessly to do it. We must continue to keep the tax burden low, protect our Constitutional rights and push back against mounting federal overreach.”
Over the past 167 days since the legislative session ended, Landgraf has taken part in more than 200 different events and meetings in the Permian Basin to interact with the public and visit with constituents.
“I look forward to continuing to interact with my fellow West Texans to reaffirm their trust and support,” Representative Landgraf said. “I humbly ask for the privilege to continue serving as your strong voice in our Texas Capitol. May God bless you and your family, and may God bless Texas forever!”
