Our quality of life includes having clean water, wild places and wild things.
Our quality of life includes having clean water, wild places and wild things. Our state’s wildlife resources and its land, waters and woods are among the best in the United States. Our State Parks in District 19 attract visitors from around the world and contribute millions to the economy and community. It should be noted that Texas is 97% privately owned and that our landowners are the primary stewards of our state’s wildlife; we should never take them for granted. The North American Wildlife Model is the best in the world, and the result of it is all around you – quality wildlife diversity that supports a multi-billion dollar economy to Texas. As a person who has devoted a career to conservation, I will work to protect our state’s natural resources and work to keep Texas the envy of the nation.
