Jim Herblin is a candidate for State Representative, District 61.

A proud native Texan, husband, father and grandfather, Jim Herblin desires to lead Texas back to a place of strength. Like so many of you, Jim was raised on common sense and conservative values. While Jim has always supported Republicans, he is concerned that our current GOP elected officials, who have controlled the Texas House since 2002, have failed to pass our grassroots’ legislative priorities. Jim decided to run for state representative to provide bold, unapologetic and common-sense leadership.

As a forensic accountant and small business owner, Jim understands how to balance a budget and stop wasteful spending. Jim will lead the fight to fix our broken property tax system.

Jim believes in our Republican Party of Texas platform, and he will lead the charge to enact policies consistent with those pro-Texas and pro-family planks.

Jim and his wife Dana live in Collin County, Texas.
