APPLE SPRINGS — Many East Texans are seeking a true conservative candidate who will be their voice in the 89th session of the Texas Legislature in 2025, and Paulette Carson looks to fill that role.
Carson has been listening to you and is taking on incumbent House Rep. Trent Ashby, who has not had a primary challenger since entering the Republican political scene a decade ago. The primary election is March 5, 2024.
After witnessing the debacle in the Texas State House earlier this year, it became clear that the risk of losing Texas is higher than ever before. During the Legislative session the conservative voice was diminished, and many strong and important bills to help Texans gain ground were systematically blocked.
The impeachment process of our Attorney General exposed the lack of principles in our current “conservative” leadership. This was the final straw to bring Carson to drive a stake in the ground for House District 9. Carson believes the power of our conservative voice has never been more crucial.
“The Texas House is in dire need of leaders who are both principled and courageous,” Carson said. “True conservative leaders must dare to act in opposition to the current Republican House leadership. They have been persuaded for decades to align with liberal forces in the House for political gain and influence. Follow the money that supports our legislators and the alliances become clear. Our Great State of Texas is losing its way. This mission is paramount to saving Texas, and thus saving America.”
As a life-long Republican coming from a military family, Carson understands the importance of defending our state and nation from both foreign and domestic terrorists. She is a strong champion for protecting our Second Amendment rights against all federal overreaches.
The foundation of her campaign is to Take Your Voice to Austin and work to Revive Texas Values.
Carson has a long history of leadership in the Republican Party across the state of Texas. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University with an emphasis in Management and Economics. With her broad experience in corporate management, along with sound fiscal oversight, she promises to be your reliable financial conservative voice for HD9.
Carson is a dedicated wife, mother, businesswoman, and founder of two non-profit organizations. She and her husband Charlie have three sons: Kyle is a small business owner, and his wife Debbie is a public school educator; David is serving as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Space Force, and his wife Stephanie is a Christian family counselor.
For 25 years, Paulette and Charlie, with their special-ability son Caleb, have enjoyed life on their ranch amidst the Davy Crockett National Forest. They attend Harmony Hill Baptist Church in Lufkin.
“Faith, Family and Freedom are what make Texas great,” Carson said. “I will Take Your Voice to Austin as we work together to Revive Texas Values.”
