HOUSTON – State Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) filed the necessary paperwork this week with the Harris County Republican Party to continue to serve his district in the Texas House of Representatives. Wednesday marked the beginning of the filing period for candidates running in the 2004 Primary Election.
“I am excited about continuing my pro-taxpayer, pro-neighborhood agenda in the Texas House,” announced Bohac. “I am very proud of all that was accomplished during my first term as State Representative, and we still have more to do as we prepare to tackle school finance reform in a special session this spring.”
During the 78th Legislative Session, Representative Bohac had an aggressive legislative agenda and was the only freshman legislator to have authored a bill placed on the Major State Calendar of the Texas House of Representatives. His achievements included the restoration of the Pledge of Allegiance to the public school classroom, strengthening common nuisance laws to crack down on illegal activities such as gambling, prostitution, illegal drug use and gang activity, and setting up a program to reimburse hardworking teachers who spend their own money to provide for our children in the classroom.
“I look forward to continuing to serve the good people of District 138,” said Bohac. “I have a proven record of protecting our neighborhoods, improving our local quality of life, strengthening our public schools and fighting for lower property taxes.
“This campaign season provides a great opportunity to talk about these issues and share my plan for the future of west and northwest Houston and for all Texans,” concluded Bohac. “It is an honor to serve my district in the Texas House and a privilege to continue working hard to make our district and our state a better place in which to live and raise a family.”
Born and raised in Houston, Dwayne Bohac was elected in November of 2002 to represent the people of District 138 in the Texas House of Representatives. His district is generally comprised of the Bear Creek, Spring Branch, Oak Forest and Garden Oaks communities of west and northwest Houston.
