Lubbock Restaurant Association Endorses Harvey Hilderbran For Texas Comptroller


A Lubbock organization has endorsed a candidate for Texas Comptroller.

The Lubbock Restaurant Association has endorsed Harvey Hilderbran for Texas Comptroller.

Hilderbran, a Texas Tech graduate and State Representative for District 53, is running in a crowded race against three other Republicans to replace outgoing Comptroller Susan Combs.

“Rep. Hilderbran has been a great friend to the hard working people in our industry and we look forward to his continued leadership as Texas Comptroller,” said David Cea, owner of Caprock Café and Orlandos, and president of the LRA.

“Thanks to Rep. Hilderbran’s leadership, the mixed beverage gross receipts tax that many restaurants are subjected to was restructured to be more transparent and fair,” said Cea. “This will be a great benefit to our industry which is challenged with rising food costs and increased competition.”

Hilderbran is running against State Senator Glenn Hegar, former Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina, and former State Representative Raul Torres in the March 4th Republican Primary.

The winner in the Republican Primary will face off against Democrat Houston businessman Mike Collier, Libertarian Ben Sanders, and Green Party member Deb Shafto in the November 4th General Election, who are all running unopposed in their party primaries.
