Texas State Representative Dan Huberty released the following statement: “As the third Special Session ends, I have decided to announce my retirement from the Texas House of Representatives when my term is complete. I have thought long and hard about this decision and know it is time for new opportunities in my life. It’s been an honor to represent the people and communities of District 127 at the Texas Capitol, and I’m proud of the work our team has accomplished.
“Serving through six regular and nine special sessions, I realize that good public policy takes time. No one legislator, political party, or interest group holds all the answers. But working in good faith, collaboratively, and constructively we can achieve mighty results for Texans.
“My interest in and passion for public education remains at my core. I believe the work we have accomplished, specifically HB3 (86R), will have a lasting impact for the school children of Texas for a long time to come.
“I want to thank the people of the district who have been supportive through all the ups and downs in my career, as they always believed in me and trusted me to fight on their behalf. I want to thank my amazing staff that have worked for me over the years, especially my Chief of Staff Casey Christman.
“My family has been patient and understanding of my public service and the turmoil of public life. To Brianna, Ryan, and Dylan, I love you and I can only imagine how tough it is to be the child of a politician. I especially want to thank my wife Janet who has been an amazing partner over the years, and I am proud of the work she has done on behalf of our community.
“To my colleagues and friends at the Capitol, may God bless you and your families and find favor upon the work that you do in the years to come.”
