Cedar Park, Texas, August 15, 2013 – State Representative Tony Dale (R-Cedar Park) will be standing for re-election to the Texas House of Representatives. Elected to represent District 136 in 2012, Dale recently completed his first regular session in office, as well as three special sessions. He currently serves on the House Energy Resources and Homeland Security & Public Safety committees.
“It is one of the great honors of my life to serve the citizens of Cedar Park, Leander, Brushy Creek, and northwest Austin,” said Dale. “I worked with each area of the district to carry legislation that was beneficial to their community. Today, I bring every bit of enthusiasm from my 2012 election into this campaign.”
With major changes coming to statewide leadership, Dale believes his experience will be valuable to District 136. “When the 2015 session begins, we will have a new governor and several new faces in statewide offices,” said Dale. “I look forward to developing and strengthening our relationships while continuing the fight for quality education and limited government.”
Representative Dale’s first term was marked by a state budget that was balanced without a tax increase. Dale pushed for fair regulations that will continue to make Texas a leader in American job creation. Tony also supported major improvements to public education, water and transportation infrastructure, and legislation supporting crucial domestic energy production in Texas.
Dale, a veteran of the United States Army, is a proud husband and father. Prior to his Texas House service, Tony was twice elected as a Cedar Park City Councilmember and was the city’s Mayor Pro Tem in 2012. He was also appointed to several committees in Cedar Park and Williamson County.
“We continue to face real challenges in Texas, despite our many blessings,” said Dale. “The looming federal implementation of Obamacare and the uncertainty of education litigation requires diligence and focus. I hope to continue representing southwestern Williamson County as we seek to make our communities the best places to raise a family, find a job, and start a new business in all of Texas.”
