Republican Texas Land Commissioner Candidate David Watts to Visit Lubbock


A candidate for Texas Land Commissioner will be in Lubbock this week.

Republican candidate David Watts will hold a meet and greet session in Lubbock on July 5th from noon until 2 p.m. at Hastings, located at 50th Street and Indiana Avenue.

Watts has had a career in business helping companies leverage technology and human resource solutions to serve their clients, served as a preacher in Longview, Texas, and worked for a brief time as a Certified Flight Instructor.

He also published the historical fiction novel, Hope in Hangnam, in 2012.

Watts issued a statement on his ideological beliefs in a press release.

“First and foremost, liberty belongs to the people. I fundamentally trust the liberty of individuals more than the authority of government. Whatever government does, it must respect that the people have fundamental rights and liberties. Liberty is granted by God, not government. Second, in all things, we must champion conservative solutions to our challenges. Conservative solutions are those which uphold a limited role of government and elevate individual liberty. Third, within these principles, we must boldly champion conservative solutions for tomorrow’s Texas. In fact, that’s our campaign theme: Bold Leadership for Tomorrow’s Texas.”

George P. Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush and the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, is also running for Texas Land Commissioner as a Republican.

Current Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson has announced his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of Texas in the 2014 Republican Primary, where he will face current Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples, and Houston-area State Senator Dan Patrick.
