State Rep. Scott Sanford announced that he will seek re-election to the Texas House of Representatives for District 70. During the 83rd Legislative Session, Representative Sanford proved himself as an effective representative of Collin County. He repeatedly demonstrated his conservative principles in committee hearings, the Chamber, and while voting.
Notably, he assisted in facilitating Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) move to McKinney, bringing approximately eighty additional jobs to our community.
Representative Sanford was also a proud supporter of the pro-life legislation which successfully passed during the Third Called Legislative Session this past summer. He has a proven record of supporting all initiatives to protect Life.
“God has blessed Texas. He has given us a beautiful and rugged landscape with natural resources that Texans have worked hard to tap and develop. People and jobs continue to move to Texas as a favorable business climate has proven magnetic for investment capital. However, these opportunities are under attack. Threats of higher taxation, over-regulation of business, teaching revisionist history in schools, socializing health care, and oppression of religious believers exist even in this greatest of states. In seeking re-election, I will continue to defend Texas from these threats by fighting for my values of good jobs, strong families, and a safe community,” stated Sanford.
Sanford is executive pastor at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church in Allen. He and his wife, Shelly, have two children, Ryan and Lauren. Currently, he serves District 70 in the Texas House of Representatives and is a member of the Urban Affairs Committee and Human Services Committee.
