Former Texas State Representative John Wray today announced he will seek election to House District 10 following the election of current State Representative Jake Ellzey to Congress. District 10 includes all of Ellis County and part of Henderson County.
“I took time off to spend more time with my family and our Ellis County community, but with Jake heading to Congress, I can’t stay on the sidelines,” Wray said. “We need a strong, experienced legislator who knows what they are doing and can hit the ground running. With the Democrats fleeing the state and pulling every trick in the book to block conservative legislation, we need someone who knows how to fight back.”
In Austin, John fought aggressively for conservative priorities and values. In the 86th session of 2019, he helped cut property taxes by $5 billion, while giving public school teachers and retirees much-needed raises and increasing school funding.
“Redistricting is next month, and we will need strong representation,” Wray said. “Districts like ours need legislators to protect schools and businesses from urban interests.”
John is a graduate of Texas A&M University and the University of Texas School of Law. He is an attorney serving small businesses and families in Ellis County. John also co-owns Town Square Title.
John and his wife, Michele, live in Midlothian with their two children, Morgan and Patrick. This fall, Morgan will be a junior at the University of Texas at Austin and Patrick is a senior at Waxahachie High School.
