Senator Don Huffines: District 16

Party: Republican

Don is serving his first term during the 84th legislative session. A lifelong true conservative Republican, he has served as a delegate to several Republican state conventions and as a delegate to the 2008 and 2012 Republican National Conventions. Possessing a passion for liberty and a desire to solve the big issues facing Texas, Don believes it's time to expand the conservative philosophy to reach new voters with new ideas, to govern by seeing beyond the obvious, bringing all Texans together to achieve unimaginable prosperity through limited government and cherishing our liberty that God alone has bestowed upon us. We must foster private charity, personal responsibility and fortification of the traditional family.

Don's focus this session is transportation, term limits for all elected office holders, budget transparency, and securing our border. Born in Dallas Texas, a fifth generation Texan, Don's grandfather founded Huffines Auto Group in 1924 in the Dallas area which is still family owned and operated. In 1985, Don and his twin brother Phillip started Huffines Communities, one of the largest real estate land development companies in DFW.

Don graduated from UT Austin with a Finance Degree in 1981. He and his wife, Mary Catherine, of 26 years have raised four sons and one daughter, active in Boy Scouts of America and all outdoor activities. His trust in Jesus Christ and the love of his family provide Don his daily compass.
