Angela Paxton Running for Texas Senate SD8
I’m running for the Texas Senate and I am asking for your support. I don’t make this decision lightly. I believe with all my heart this district needs a committed conservative voice informed by local experience, deep community roots and a strong record of dedicated service. We need a leader who will continue our community’s exceptional history of effective representation.
After much prayer, I’m excited to step forward with overwhelming support and encouragement from my family, long-time friends, district, regional and statewide conservative leaders, elected officials, precinct chairs and citizens from across Senate District 8.
As of today, I’m proud to announce that over 1,000 individuals have publicly endorsed my campaign and pledged their support. An overwhelming majority of these individuals are residents of Senate District 8. All this grassroots support in less than two weeks’ time … and we’re just getting started!
Last week, I stepped away from my career as a professional educator to commit my full-time attention and focus to this campaign. I’m committed to a campaign based on issues, experience and qualifications to represent our conservative values in the Texas Legislature.
Senate District 8 is my home and has been for over 20 years. Together with my husband, we’ve raised 4 incredible children in McKinney. I’ve spent countless hours at soccer games and volunteered my time, talent and energy for local causes near and dear to my heart.
I’ve watched our area of Texas transform from a quiet rural community into an economic powerhouse that is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. That’s why I think it’s vitally important that Senate District 8 be represented by a local voice that understands the unique opportunities and challenges confronting our community like property tax relief, transportation and water.
As a professional educator with experience in public, private and home schooling, I bring an informed perspective to the education issue that singularly utilizes 52% of our state’s budget. I have a common-sense fiscal approach ingrained in me through a modest financial upbringing, coupled with my experience as a working mother that has always been defined by stewardship. I’m going to put this background to work for you in the Texas Senate.
I’m an adopted child myself, raised by two incredible loving parents. I believe at my core that the right to life is an unalienable right granted to each human being by our Creator. I believe that in society as in families, personal responsibility is central to promoting human dignity.
I’m overwhelmed by the outpouring of support I’ve received from the four corners of Senate District 8 and across Texas. I’m asking for your support and prayers for this conservative movement that embodies a true grassroots political effort.
Thank you and may God Bless the Great State of Texas!
With grateful appreciation,
