Candidate Statement:
Coming soon!

I am a 35 year old medically retired Marine and Purple Heart recipient. University of North Texas graduate. Husband and father of 2 young sons. Most recently I worked at an Austin cable News organization and had to quit to stay at home with my youngest son in late 2020 because of child care becoming too expensive due to the covid 19 outbreak. I love Texas, and Texans, with my whole heart and I cannot sit on the sideline any longer and watch people suffer because the people currently in power only care about keeping that power and catering to their big donors. I am a Republican because I believe in true freedom, limited government, fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility, but most importantly the Constitution of the United States of America.

Throughout my life I have lived for one year, or longer, in each of these Texas cities- Richmond/Rosenberg, Sugar Land, Rowlett, Nacogdoches, Rockwall, Lewisville, Texarkana, San Antonio, Little Elm, Van Alstyne, and Lago Vista.

I am a farmer at heart because I love putting seeds in dirt, nurturing those plants and getting something amazing back with my hard work. In farming, the harder you work, the better the return if God allows you the conditions. That is a perfect metaphor for life because the harder we work to better ourselves, the better our outcomes in life become, if it is part of God's plan. With a little bit of luck and with lots of hard work, a person can do absolutely anything. I am a Christian, and I believe we are all part of one big plan that we cannot truly imagine or fully understand. I believe everything happens for a reason and my life has led me to this for a reason. I will make Texas a better place!

The Republican Primary In Texas

On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the statute-specified period of early voting and absentee voting, the primary elections of the Republican Party will take place throughout Texas.

A primary election is an election in which registered voters in their county of residence will select candidates that they believe should represent the Republican Party for certain elected office to run in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

In the primary elections in Texas, registered voters will select candidates for certain Federal offices, State offices and County offices. The primary elections are also used to select party convention delegates and party leaders. Candidates for these offices have to meet the requirements of the office and file by the deadline in December 2021 in order to appear on the ballot.

The State of Texas employs an open primary system. In this system, voters do not have to register with a party in advance to participate in that party's primary. The voter must sign a pledge stating the following (the language below is taken directly from state statutes):

“The following pledge shall be placed on the primary election ballot above the listing of candidates' names: 'I am a Republican and understand that I am ineligible to vote or participate in another political party's primary election or convention during this voting year.”
