AUSTIN – State Representative Paul Workman (R-Austin) today announced that he will seek re-election as State Representative for District 47 in the Texas House of Representatives.
“Representing the people of western and southern Travis County is an honor and privilege,” said Rep. Workman. “It is a blessing to serve my neighbors at the state capitol, and I look forward to continuing to represent my community in the Texas House of Representatives should the voters again place their trust in me.”
As a member of the House Committee on Natural Resources, Rep. Workman has worked diligently to provide an adequate supply of clean drinking water for the Highland Lakes region and all of Texas. Previously, Rep. Workman has twice been appointed to select committees with oversight of transportation planning and funding in Texas. Rep. Workman continues to demand results for IH 35, SH 45 SW, the “Y” at Oak Hill, Loop 360, and the Ranch Road 620 corridor, including the intersection at Ranch Road 2222 in Four Points. Positive results will continue on these critical roadways.
Rep. Workman has been named a Champion of Free Enterprise by the Associated Builders & Contractors, a Fighter for Free Enterprise by the Texas Association of Business, a Courageous Conservative by the Texas Conservative Coalition, and a Lone Star Conservative Leader by the Texas Conservative Roundtable. In 2013, Rep. Workman was named Legislator of the Year by the Real Estate Council of Austin.
“I am looking forward to the opportunity to visit with our community on the issues that are important to western and southern Travis County,” Rep. Workman said. “Together, we can build on the work we have already started on water, transportation, education, border security, cracking down on sanctuary cities, and preserving Texas’ status as an economic engine for the United States.”
Rep. Workman was first elected to serve House District 47 in the Texas House of Representatives in 2010. District 47 is comprised of most of western Travis County and portions of southern Travis County.
