BUTTON ANNOUNCES FOR RE-ELECTION
State Representative Angie Chen Button today announced she will run for re-election to her
Texas State House seat. A rising conservative star in the Texas Legislature, Rep. Button is
currently a member of the Ways and Means Committee, Calendars Committee and is Vice-
Chair of the Technology Committee. She has represented the North Dallas County area since
“I am running for re-election to continue my fight to make Texas the best place to live,
work, and raise a family,” said Button. “Now is the time to send strong leadership to Austin to
fight for our children and the future of Texas.”
In the legislature, Button has opposed all tax increases. Texas’ strong stand against
tax increases has been one of the key reasons it was one of the last states to succumb to the
recession and the first one to recover from it.
“My top priority has always been and will remain to be a responsible conservative
voice in the debate on the budget and Texas’ tax policy,” said Button.
During her service, Button worked to pass the 2011 landmark budget that removed
wasteful spending to balance the budget without a tax increase during the Great Recession.
Recently, as a member of the Ways and Means Committee, she joint-authored legislation to
provide $1 billion in tax relief to Texas job creators. Button is a champion of government
transparency and reducing government waste. As Vice-Chair of Technology, she has passed
legislation to use high tech to make government more transparent, efficient, and to save tax
