Ben Bumgarner

Benjamin Bumgarner, 38

I will be a voice for my constituents in HD 63. I plan on being a fighter for property tax reform, securing our southern border and limiting government. As a small business owner I want to do whatever I can to relieve this economic strife for the district. Texas will be a beacon for the rest of the United States and that policy will come from Denton County.


H. Denise Wooten, 62

I am firmly committed to helping lead our state toward reason-based, humane policies that enhance the lives of ordinary citizens. As a psychologist with a successful practice in Flower Mound, I know the importance that individual rights play in our daily lives. Being safe from gun violence, making decisions about our own bodies, and deciding what is best for our families should not be left up to those who do not value individual needs. I will work for the good of all people in my district.
