My family and I are Christians who attend Trinity Episcopal Church in Junction. I'm an 8th generation Texan, a descendant of a pioneering family of one of our brave defenders of the Alamo, and grandson of former Governor Coke R. Stevenson. I come from a long line of Texans committed to making our state a better place to live for future generations. My wife, Lacey, and I live on the family ranch with our five-year old son, Coke, raising cattle and operating Telegraph Title Company in Junction. It's important to us to raise our son with strong, traditional Texas values rooted in hard work, integrity, faith in God and a commitment to this land and to our neighbors.
