Ever since then, Parker has been committed to the principles of a free market approach to managing our economy, smaller government, lower taxes, responsible spending, and providing a strong defense for our nation’s security. In addition to his work establishing various Republican organizations as a young man, Parker served as a White House intern under President George H.W. Bush. Parker earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Dallas, and a Master’s Degree from the London School of Economics. Among his many accomplishments is his drafting of legislation that deals with protection for women and children against human traffickers.
