AUSTIN—Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC (TLRPAC) today endorsed James White in his campaign for Texas Agriculture Commissioner.
“The Texas agriculture industry deserves a strong conservative leader who will fight for the best interests of Texas producers, promote Texas agriculture around the country and abroad and protect the industry from burdensome mandates and the consequences of our nation’s failed border security policies. James White is that candidate,” TLRPAC Chairman Richard J. Trabulsi Jr. said. “From his decade of service in the Texas House to his time in the U.S. Army, James has a proven track record of principled leadership, including on some of the most challenging issues facing our state. We are confident he has the discipline, character and experience necessary to lead the Texas Agriculture Commission and help our state’s agriculture industry flourish. TLRPAC is proud to support him.”
Rep. White is a Houston native, who graduated with honors from Prairie View A&M University and received a doctorate from the University of Houston. After serving in the U.S. Army, Rep. White began a career as a public school educator in the Fort Bend, Livingston, and Woodville Independent School districts. He has represented House District 19, which includes Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Polk and Tyler counties, since his election in 2010.
Rep. White has been recognized for his focus on strong families, constitutional government and economic prosperity through various awards, including Texas Monthly Magazine “2019 Best Legislator”; Texas Association of Business “Champions for Free Enterprise”; Texas Eagle Forum “Most Conservative Rating”; American Conservative Union “Award for Conservative Excellence”; Conservative Roundtable of Texas “Lone Star Conservative Leader”; National Federation of Independent Business in Texas “100% Rating”; and Texas Right to Life “Perfect Pro-Life Voting Record.” The Texas Justice of the Peace and Constable Association recognized Rep.
