Fernando Padron is a conservative running for the Texas State House of Representatives District 116. He stands for limited government, right to life, religious liberty, strengthening families, and better higher paying jobs.
He was born in Cuba and immigrated to the U.S. when he was ten years old. Having lived in a country where personal liberties were taken away, he has a higher appreciation for the freedoms guaranteed in the US Constitution. Fernando Padron is an American by choice because he believes that the United States is an exceptional country. His love, admiration, and reverence for this great nation are what compels him to run for office.
Texas has seen exponential growth in recent years. With 48% of district 116 households making less than $49,000 a year, we deserve better! He is running to help bring more economic opportunities and growth to our community. He will work tirelessly to increase the take-home pay, protect the right for parents to choose the form of education for their children, lower property taxes, reduce regulations, preserve constitutional rights—including gun rights—and make government smaller, efficient, and less costly.
Fernando Padron has worked for many years for nonprofit organizations and government serving the community here and overseas. He is a proven leader and unapologetic pro-life Christian. He holds a Master Degree in Public Policy and Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
