Four Price Files for State Representative House District 87
Today, State Representative Four Price announced that he filed the necessary paperwork with the Texas Republican Party for his re-election candidacy for State Representative of House District 87. “It is a great privilege representing the constituents of House District 87 in the Texas Legislature. I humbly ask the voters of Carson, Hutchinson, Moore, Potter, and Sherman counties for their continued support and vote as I again seek to be their voice of common sense at the State Capitol,” Price enthusiastically said.
Price serves on a range of committees that give him a strong perspective on state finances, health care, state agency oversight and government transparency. His current committee assignments include serving as a member of the powerful House Committee on Appropriations. Additionally, Price is one of only ten legislators serving on the influential Sunset Advisory Commission which is responsible for reviewing the operational effectiveness of numerous state agencies, including all of the state health and human services agencies in 2014.
For his legislative accomplishments during the 2013 legislative session, Price was named a “Champion for Free Enterprise” by the Texas Association of Business in recognition of his efforts in supporting Texas businesses; was a recipient of the “Local Hero” award by the Panhandle Producers & Royalty Owners Association; and received a “TORCHbearer” award by the Texas Organization of Rural & Community Hospitals for his work in strengthening rural hospitals. Price was also recognized by the Texas State Athletic Trainers’ Association with their Distinguished Service Award for his work on improving student athlete health and safety, and he received a “Legislator of the Year” award from the Texas Civil Justice League for his work in passing legislation that encourages settlements so that seriously injured Texans may have their claims resolved more timely and fairly. Since the conclusion of the legislative session in August, Price has held meetings throughout the district reporting to constituents on the successes of the session, including his work as a joint author of House Bill 4, the water funding enabling legislation for the constitutional amendment recently approved by Texas voters. Price said that he received encouragement to run again while travelling throughout the five-county district. “I am honored by the many kind words of encouragement,” said Price.
“I want to help ensure Texas remains a land like no other -- a land of opportunity, grit, and optimism. Our State’s achievements have not occurred accidentally. Conservative minded leadership continues to foster our successes. I will continue to be a strong advocate for low-tax, pro-business and job-creation policies,” Price said. “In addition, I want to see Texas continue to invest in education and do what is necessary to make sure we have enough water and good roads to support our population growth.”
Price and his wife Karen live in Amarillo and have four children. For more information about Four Price please visit www.fourprice.org.
