George P. Bush is part of the next generation of Texas leaders. He is a successful businessman, philanthropist, civic leader and veteran dedicated to advancing conservative values.
While many know him as grandson of President George H.W. Bush, son of former Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush, George P. is a native-born Texan and leader with strong convictions and fresh perspectives.
As a public school teacher, George learned that we need more accountability from our schools and more options for our parents. Education is often measured by inputs; it needs to be measured by outcomes.
As a businessman, George learned that government can’t create jobs; but it can prevent the creation of jobs. Jobs come from small businesses and entrepreneurs who need to have the freedom to pursue their dreams and create economic growth.
And as a military officer, George knows that we must always honor those who have honored us with their service. When our veterans return home, it's important that we support them as they rejoin our local communities. Any time any veteran needs help getting an education, a job or health care, we should provide assistance.
As Texas Land Commissioner, George will bring his conservative values and his real-world experience with him. He will never stop fighting to create a better Texas by promoting our common Texas values of family, faith and freedom.
George will also support the responsible stewardship of our resources and the reasonable drilling of oil and natural gas on public lands. We can and should do both. The days of false choices between protecting the environment and promoting jobs are over. Here in Texas, we are going to take care of our resources and take care of our people at the same time. We are going to fight excessive federal regulation. Too often too many regulations from Washington have been passed that make too little sense.
We are going to fight back for Texas.
