Rep. Tracy O. King (D-Uvalde) is proud to announce his campaign for re-election to District 80 of the Texas House of Representatives.

The new District 80 includes the counties of Atascosa, Dimmit, Frio, Uvalde, Zavala and part of Webb.

“I look forward to another term in the Texas House of Representatives and the opportunity to continue serving the residents of District 80,” King said. “With your support, we can continue to work for a better and safer Texas.”

King was first elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1994. This seniority has allowed him the opportunity to hold numerous leadership positions, the most recent of which is Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee. In addition to his chairmanship, he also serves on the Energy Resources Committee which is responsible for the oversight of the oil and gas industry. In the past he has Chaired the Licensing and Administrative Procedures Committee, the Agriculture and Livestock Committee, and the Border and International Affairs Committee.

As a local businessman, father and husband, King is keenly aware of the needs and challenges facing South and Southwest Texas families. Combined with his years of experience and proven record in the Texas House, he is unmatched when it comes to knowing what to do and how to do it.

“I will continue to approach the needs of our state with a fair and determined mind,” King said. “The seniority that I have will continue to play a pivotal role in securing key leadership positions that will greatly benefit District 80.”

King’s agenda for next session is to continue his efforts for more job opportunities, better health care, improved public education, additional benefits for veterans, lower taxes and a better business climate for the citizens of South and Southwest Texas.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your State Representative and a responsibility I take very seriously,” King said. “I am sincerely grateful for everyone’s support over the years and look forward to continuing our efforts in the Texas House of Representatives.”
