Schaefer to seek re-election
Rep. Matt Schaefer offi- cially announced that he will seek re-election to a second term as State Representative for Texas House District 6 on Thursday. The announcement was made at the Smith County Republican Women’s Club meeting at Traditions Restaurant on South Broadway in Tyler.
“In my first term in Austin I stayed true to the libertyminded principles in which I believe. I didn’t just go along with lobbyists and insiders who believe in more government involvement in our lives. By the grace of God and with the permission of the voters, I am ready to serve again,” Schaefer said.
Schaefer was elected to his first term in the Texas House in 2012 and served on the Criminal Jurisprudence and the Defense and Veterans Affairs Committees.
