My call to public service came from God’s plan for me and my family. It was God’s calling that led me to run for office and it is His call once again that brings me back. Since my first election, I have become a respected voice for prosperity, limited government, and innovative policy solutions in Austin. Many of my legislative achievements have received national acclaim and several are now national model policies. With God’s blessing, I have the strength and vision to continue to serve our community, and I humbly ask for your continued support!
