Representative Drew Springer, R-Muenster, fights to preserve rural values, promote economic development, and undue burdensome regulations in Texas. He is adamant in his belief that the government has become too large at both the federal, state, and local level. Excessive regulations overburden our lives, destroy our freedoms, create a nanny state, slows our growth, and increase the cost of living. In Drew’s opinion, the government does not have a revenue problem but a spending problem. After graduating from Weatherford High School, Drew attended and graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor’s degree in accounting. He spent fifteen years working in Texas for a railcar company as an accountant, leasing VP, and eventually president overseeing three divisions. In his role as president, Drew had over 1,000 employees working under him and made the company hundreds of millions in sales. He left to join his father’s financial services business where he has specialized in agricultural managed futures for the last twelve years. He and his wife Lydia, have been married for 25 years, and have 3 children.
