Parker, Texas – Jodie Laubenberg (R-Parker) officially announced today that she will seek re-election to the Texas House of Representatives. Laubenberg represents District 89 in Collin County, which encompasses Fairview, Lavon, Lowry Crossing, Lucas, Murphy, Nevada, Parker, St. Paul and Wylie as well as parts of Allen, Plano, Princeton and Sachse.
“It has been an incredible privilege to serve the wonderful people of Collin County, and I am humbled by their steadfast support and encouragement. My solemn pledge to District 89 is that I will continue the ongoing fight to keep Texas strong and conservative,” said Representative Laubenberg. “Texas is a shining beacon to the rest of the nation and serves as a testament to what can be achieved when we fight for liberty, limited government, religious freedom and economic prosperity.”
During the 83rd Legislative Session, Representative Laubenberg authored and passed landmark pro-life legislation HB 2, “The Woman’s Health and Preborn Pain Act,” earning the Pro-Life Representative of the Year award from Texas Right to Life and the Courageous Defender of Life award from Texas Alliance for Life. Her bill garnered national headlines and accolades from every pro-life organization in Texas and throughout the country.
“The 84th Legislature had an extremely successful session. Texans should be proud of all that we accomplished. By passing a balanced budget, protecting the Rainy Day Fund, reducing the business margins tax, continuing to defund Planned Parenthood, allocating an unprecedented $800 million to border security, passing E-verify, dedicating needed funds to transportation, strengthening our Second Amendment Rights, and protecting religious freedom, Texas will continue to be an example of prosperity and freedom to the rest of the nation.”
“While much has been accomplished, there is still serious work to be done. As a battle-tested conservative, I am well equipped to pursue the ongoing fight to ban sanctuary cities and end the magnets that promote illegal immigration. Working with Governor Abbott as a co-author to HB11, we greatly increased the funding and manpower to protect our border.”
Following the 84th Legislative Session, the Texas Conservative Coalition honored Representative Laubenberg as a Courageous Conservative. She was a 2015 inaugural inductee into the Watchdog Hall of Fame by The Dallas Morning News for her work in protecting our personal liberties. Representative Laubenberg served as Chairman of the Elections Committee where she focused on eliminating voter registration fraud and protecting the integrity of the ballot. She also served on the Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence Committee.
Laubenberg graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. She is a sixth generation Texan, having family who settled in Texas in 1861. She and her husband, Bob, have two grown children and live in Parker with an assortment of rescue dogs.
