(Frisco, TX) On Thursday, Jared Patterson launched a campaign for State Representative District 106, the seat currently held by Pat Fallon. Fallon is seeking a seat in the Texas Senate. Frisco City Council member Brian Livingston will serve as Patterson’s treasurer.
Launching his campaign, Jared said, “When it became clear that our district would be losing Pat Fallon’s conservative vote in the Texas House, I worked with other conservatives to find a strong replacement. I was incredibly humbled when many local leaders began to request that I consider running. As a businessman and someone who is staunchly committed to our conservative principles, I will fight every day to make government less involved in the lives of Texans and the citizens of District 106.”
