PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glenn Callison, a 25-year Plano resident, life-long conservative and proven civic leader, announced his candidacy for the District 66 seat in the Texas House of Representatives.
“After careful consideration and prayer, and because I believe District 66 needs a common sense, conservative voice in Austin, I want to serve as your Texas State Representative,” Callison said. “I’m running for State Representative to find solutions for adequate water and transportation infrastructure, to fight for accountability and transparency in government, to ensure the strength of our local public schools and to preserve conservative values in Texas.”
Glenn has lived in Plano with his wife of 25 years, Jean Callison, together raising their two children who attended Plano ISD schools through all twelve grades. Following completion of his business and law degrees at Baylor University, Callison moved to Plano and began practicing commercial real estate law with a major Texas law firm. He has served as CEO of Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr for the last eight years. His long-term dedication to community service during his 25 years in Plano, including actively supporting his wife, Jean, during her eight years on the Plano City Council, has allowed Mr. Callison to experience the growth and vitality of North Texas and District 66 first hand.
“As a resident of District 66 for 25 years, I recognize both the strengths of and challenges facing our community. I am committed to solving problems to ensure North Texas remains a great place to live and work,” he said. “I have always felt the need to give back to the community, and see the chance to serve in the Texas Legislature as a significant opportunity to make a difference for the citizens of our district.”
Mr. Callison has repeatedly demonstrated servant leadership in the community by serving as Board Chairman of Baylor Regional Medical Center of Plano as well as Chairman of The Heart Hospital at Baylor Plano. He has previously served on the boards of the Plano Education Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, Plano Family YMCA and Plano Symphony Orchestra. He also serves as a Deacon at Parkway Hills Baptist Church where he previously taught a Bible study in the Church’s youth group for five years.
“I look forward to working with all the constituents of District 66 and fighting for common sense, conservative solutions to the issues facing our state and community,” said Mr. Callison.
