I will work for you. As a councilman in Flower Mound, I made sure to always put my residents first. Most politicians do not listen anymore. Let me just say, I hear you! It would be an honor and a privilege to serve you in the Texas house.
How many of us are happy with the way our country is being run currently?
I know I certainly am not.
I am not happy with the constant attack on our Second Amendment. The anti-gun left is always trying to find a way to find a loophole in the constitution and hinder law-abiding citizens.
I’m not happy with the ever-expanding, overreaching government. How many of us were appalled during the pandemic when the government shut down our churches? It happened and most of us just sat by and accepted it for being “for our safety”.
Just like a lot of Republican residents of House District 63 I am not happy about how our property taxes are diverted to other projects within the state instead of funding our school districts. Frankly, Recapture needs to seriously be overhauled if not outright gotten rid of. For example, Lewisville ISD will roughly give away 57 million dollars to the state that could be going into the district for better funding of our schools' social and extracurricular programs, the ability to pay down debt, lower the tax rate, and/or giving our educators proper living wage increases. If we got rid of recapture we could pay down debt and fund these programs and lower the tax rate to property owners all within the district and not just Lewisville. I read an article the other day saying the state came within a tax windfall of around 26 billion dollars. Those monies should be used to prop up struggling districts and it should not be on the backs of hardworking residents of 63 to fund other districts when we have our own shortcomings ourselves. Recapture is a failed initiative that robs Peter to pay Paul. Let's keep our hard-working tax dollars and let those monies represent us in our communities.
For many - this has been the hardest two years of our lives. For our families, our businesses, our communities. And we got through it not because of help from the government, but by doing what we do what we always do. We get up in the morning, get on with our day, and do our level best to provide for our families.
Where is the line? I’m running to be that line.
I want to bring us back to a state-run on true conservative values. Values that limit what the government can tell us what to do and make decisions for us. I want to make sure the government truly is of, by, and for the people.
The time for bureaucrats and career politicians is over. It is time to send a fighter to Austin and show the establishment what the true meaning of grassroots is.

Ben Bumgarner has always been an advocate for our right to keep and bear arms. As the Co-Owner of a firearms manufacturing company called Evolve Weapons Systems, Ben believes that the Second Amendment was created for a reason. Ben has pledged to always fight against restrictive gun legislation.
Tax relief is necessary - More money in Texan’s pockets for our families and our economy. Ben will advocate for lower taxes and smart spending. We should not give any more of our hard-earned paychecks away, and what we do give must be spent wisely.
For two years the government shut down our churches and our schools all to further their radical agenda and to control our lives. We want limited government and maximum freedom. As your Representative, Ben will work to ensure that our government truly is of, by, and for the people.
