State Representative James White will seek re-election in the upcoming Republican primary.

In 2011, the Texas Legislature redrew the legislative district lines leaving White as the only incumbent to the new district that will include:  Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Polk, Trinity counties.

A freshman Republican, White has been recognized as one of the most conservative members of the Texas House by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Texas Eagle Forum, Texas Right to Life, and other leading conservative groups.

“I am traveling daily meeting with community leaders and hard working families,” White said. “Our East Texas values need a voice in Austin, and I want to continue to be that voice.”

“I worked closely with the East Texas agriculture and forestry industry throughout session, so we could protect local jobs,” White said.  “I own a small cattle operation, so I know what the drought and other factors play on small businesses.”

“I was first elected in 2010 because voters wanted someone who represented their core beliefs, and as a former teacher, coach and solider, I went to Austin knowing that we had to stand up for those beliefs by cutting wasteful spending and balancing the budget,” White said.

“I believe my first session was a success because I kept my promise to help stop illegal immigrants from voting by passing a voter ID law, stood with our local families and teachers to make sure we protected classroom funding for East Texas schools and helped get Texas’ fiscal house back in order.”
