Why are you running for office?

I didn't plan on running for this office, or any other public office in my lifetime. When this seat was announced as open with the retirement of the incumbent, I received numerous calls from friends and political allies to run for the HD138 seat.

After seeking the counsel of over 50 friends, political allies, and family, I was persuaded to indeed seek this office, and try work my hardest for victory. In fact, Texas Right to Life asked me to run for the seat and endorsed my candidacy before I officially announced.

I immediately turned my attention to advocating for the advancement of the Texas GOP Platform, with a special focus on the legislative priorities.

If elected and sworn into office, my work will be single-minded: to advance the principles of life, liberty, and prosperity for all Texans.
