Plano resident Jeff Leach on Monday officially filed to run for the Texas House of Representatives in District 67, which includes portions of Allen, Plano and Richardson. Leach, a conservative Republican, first publicly announced his plans to run last month.
“I am running because I believe the people of District 67 deserve a Representative who will fight for them in Austin. I am firmly committed to our traditional conservative values of smaller government, less spending and lower taxes.” He said.
A lifelong conservative, Leach is an advocate for tort reform and has worked over the past few years with Texans for Lawsuit Reform to further reduce the frivolous lawsuits that clog up the justice system in Texas. He is also strongly committed to traditional conservative values and will fight to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms, safeguard traditional marriage, and protect the sanctity of every human life.
“As the next State Representative from District 67 I will aggressively work to eliminate wasteful spending, work to lower taxes, improve education and fight to ensure the security of our borders. Our country and state are at a turning point, and true conservatives must continue to work together to make sure the size and scope of government is kept in check,” said Leach.
Jeff was raised in Plano and graduated from Plano Senior High School. As a graduate of SMU’s Dedman School of Law, he currently practices with the law firm of Griffith Nixon Davison, P.C. He received his undergraduate degree from Baylor University, where he served two terms as Student Body President. He and his wife Becky are active members of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano. They live in Plano with their children, Brady and Charlotte.
