Lynn Stucky:
 Conservative Solutions to Benefit All Texans

February 23, 2018

As a businessman, Representative Lynn Stucky knows what it is like to meet a payroll. His veterinarian practice has created numerous good-paying jobs in Denton County for the last three decades. He understands how burdensome regulations increase costs and limit opportunities. Dr. Stucky uses these skills to make state government more efficient for the benefit of his constituents.

As a devout Christian, Representative Stucky follows Christ’s teachings as he determines his positions on issues important to conservatives. This direction has already proven beneficial as he is already a recognized leader in the Texas House. Last session, he was voted as Most Valuable Freshman by organizations closely following the events in the Capitol.

On issues important to conservatives, Representative Stucky has kept the promises he made during his campaign. He made stopping illegal immigration his top priority and consistently voted to secure our borders. He was a co-sponsor of the bill to end ‘Sanctuary Cities.’ This law prohibits local jurisdictions from preventing officers from upholding any part of an immigration law, including request to detain illegal immigrants to face deportation. The law gives enforcement officers additional tools to keep our communities safe and remove dangerous immigrants from our streets.

As a former school board president, Representative Stucky knows the importance of our education system. He understands the importance of local control and knows schools are the lifeblood of our communities. Stucky helped passed provisions to add $150 million to the public-school finance system, which will allow local districts provide tax relief to property owners. He worked on these provisions without increasing taxes at the state level, demonstrating he is a champion for taxpayers and students alike.

As conservatives know all too well, school district taxes make up the largest portion of our local tax bills. These two issues are linked as local officials must raise local taxes when the state cuts its share of school finance needed to educate the state’s growing student population. While we can discuss local spending caps as a reform, the only way to reduce local property taxes in a meaningful way is to properly fund our public education system in Texas – including ending the provisions of the Robin Hood system. Representative Stucky understands this critical relationship and will continue to develop conservative solutions for the benefit of all Texans.

Representative Stucky’s philosophy is very simple and in line with our conservative principles of limited government and promoting personal and economic freedoms. He works every day to unleash the power of the free market and promote pro-business policies for Texas.
