Representative Tan Parker Announces His Plan to Seek Re-Election

Conservative lawmaker vows to keep fighting for tax reductions, responsible spending plans and protecting traditional Texas family values

Flower Mound – Today State Representative Tan Parker announced that he will seek re-election to the Texas House of Representatives. Initially elected to office in 2006, Rep. Parker has earned the reputation of being an effective advocate for Denton County, the north Texas region and being a state lawmaker who is accessible to his constituents.

“Over the last 7 years it has been my honor to be a part of making Texas the envy of the rest of this great nation,” Parker stated. “We have balanced budgets, provided record tax cuts, increased education spending, reduced the role of standardized tests in our public classrooms, further secured our border and enacted voter ID laws, to name a few successes. I’m proud of these achievements but there is much more work to be done. Now is the time for Texas to be planning and working for the future, and I look forward to being a conservative voice in addressing those issues.”

Since taking office, Rep. Parker has been a part of key victories for Texas such as: being the most economically vibrant state in the nation, reducing taxes on small businesses, crafting responsible spending plans that live within their available means, and increasing the state’s share of public school funding even during these globally challenging economic times. His own legislative accomplishments include state laws to: enhance local economic development initiatives, improve mobility in North Texas, reduce voter registration fraud, protect children from abuse, improve lake safety, end wasteful government spending and eliminate erroneous regulations on private business.

Rep. Parker’s efforts have earned him past recognitions from such distinguished organizations as: Texas Association of Business, Eagle Forum, the Heritage Alliance, Americans for Prosperity, Young Conservatives of Texas, the Texas Realtors Association and many others.

House District 63 comprises the southwest corner of Denton County. It includes the communities of Flower Mound, Argyle, Lantana, Trophy Club, Justin, Northlake, Bartonville, Copper Canyon, Double Oak, Ponder, Roanoke, Dish and portions of: Highland Village, Lewisville, Southlake, Westlake and Ft. Worth.

Parker resides in Flower Mound with his wife, Beth, and their two daughters, Lauren and Ashley. Together they attend St. Ann’s Church. In addition to serving as a state lawmaker, Parker is a successful Texas businessman. He also serves on several boards of directors and advisory panels, including the University of Dallas, Communities in Schools North Texas and the Childrens Advocacy Center for Denton County.
