Tom Glass, 61, has the managerial, legal, educational, and life experiences that qualify him to be your Texas Senator.
He has spent many Texas legislative sessions advocating for legislation that will increase Texas liberty. In the last two legislative sessions, he has worked via his Texas Constitutional Enforcement group to work for the Texas Sovereignty Act. He also has created a group called Protect the Texas Grid, where he has worked to harden our electrical grid against numerous threats.
He is retired from a varied career in information technology at ExxonMobil where he primarily focused on cyber-security and security and controls. He has also worked in the oil patch.
He is a graduate of Odessa Permian High School, Texas A&M University (B.S., Chemical Engineering), Harvard Business School (MBA), and the University of Houston Law Center (J.D.).
Having been raised to revere the Texas and American founders and their ideas, Tom was condescendingly dubbed by one of his Harvard professors as the token "Lockean," referring to Tom's adherence to the most influential philosopher to the Founders, John Locke.
Tom has never practiced law, treating his late-in-life law degree as a public policy finishing school. His wife persuaded him to go to law school by the following logic: "Isn't politics about making law? If you are trying to make something, shouldn't you know about what you are trying to make?"
Tom earned his way through Texas A&M with a half academic scholarship and a half track scholarship.
Tom is married to Kathie Glass, who is ran for governor in 2014. They have two grown children who were both born and raised in Houston, where Tom has lived for 37 years. Tom has lived in Senate District 7 since 1994 (24 years).
Tom Glass has a strong internal moral compass, and is dedicated to doing the right thing and thinking for himself. His heroes are the founders of Texas and America, those who have fought to defend our liberty throughout our history, and those who understand and fight for liberty, today.
