Slawson running for State House

Shelby Slawson announced her candidacy for State Representative for Texas House District 59 last week.

Slawson is a 42-year-old attorney and Erath County small business owner who lives in Stephenville with her husband and their children. She also chairs a Stephenville economic development board and serves in a variety of other organizations.

She will be filing for a place on the Republican ballot.

“Our hardworking taxpayers deserve conservatives who govern like conservatives,” Slawson says.

“I have a demonstrated record as an authentic conservative, fierce rural taxpayer advocate, and effective community leader.

“As State Representative, I’ll bring a burst of bold, principled energy for our people, fighting to secure the border, reform eminent domain and property appraisals, cut taxes, support educators and replace STAAR, protect our economy, and ensure our rural counties have a strong voice in redistricting.”

Slawson says she looks forward to visiting with citizens as she begins her campaign.
