Additional comment from candidate:
I am a business owner with more than 50 employees who depend on my good judgment, and I have the same sense of personal responsibility to defend conservative values and protect our way of life as a Texas State Representative. Following my first session in the Texas House, I was honored to be named a Faith and Family Champion by Texas Values Action, score 100% Pro-Life by Texas Right to Life, be named a Champion of Free Enterprise by the Texas Association of Business, and be endorsed by the National Rifle Association for re-election. I will always work to honor the trust that has been placed in me by the voters of my district.
