WESLEY RATCLIFF

Candidate for Texas Representative in District 8, which includes Anderson, Freestone, Hill and Navarro counties.

Texas Democratic Platform

Texas Democrats believe government exists to achieve together what we cannot achieve as individuals; and government must serve all people. A representative democracy is only truly representative if every single citizen is guaranteed the inalienable right to vote in fair and open elections.

 
 

Why am I running

To make Texas a better place to live, work and do business.

 
 

I am a current cattle Rancher in Freestone County, and along with my life experiences as a [NASA] scientist, teacher, employee and manager in a major corporation, and a small business owner, it has led me to focus on a platform to ensure that rural citizens get a fair allocation of the different items considered by the Texas legislature.
