Former Trophy Club Mayor Nick Sanders announced his campaign for Texas House
District 63. District 63 is currently represented by Tan Parker who announced earlier this year his campaign for State Senate.
The newly-redistricted state legislature map puts House District 63 in portions of Flower Mound, Lewisville, Roanoke, Trophy Club, Westlake, Fort Worth, Coppell, and Carrolton in southern Denton County.
“I am running to keep a strong conservative voice in Austin,” said Sanders in a press release. “I will fight to cut property taxes, secure our southern border, protect the right to life, support first responders, work to maintain our strong public schools, and oppose those who promote divisive programs. I believe that my business acumen along with over 15 years of municipal governance will aid me in adding value to my seat in the Texas House.”
