Marian Knowlton, officially announced her candidacy for the Texas House of Representatives, District 31. Knowlton is a real estate broker and lives in Poteet with her husband, Stuart. Stuart Knowlton is an Atascosa County Commissioner.
“I have traveled all over the world, and there is no place like Texas,” said Knowlton. “I especially love South Texas and we are home to the kindest and most patriotic people you will find anywhere. I will be a champion for the people of HD31.”
Knowlton says that one of the main things she wants to focus on is uniting people around family values and bringing people together. She vows to fight to reduce taxes, spending and waste, along with making it easier for entrepreneurs to start businesses and hire employees. Education, transparency, securing the border and responsible economic development are some of the other issues she wants to focus on. Knowlton says she will always remember that she works for the people of District 31, and not the other way around.
“As good as the Texas economy has been, there are parts of District 31 that are lagging behind, and some families are hurting,” added Knowlton. “If the people honor me by electing me to represent them, I will treat their money as I would my own, and always stand up for the people, regardless of consequence. We can do better, and I will unite people from all walks of life to help make South Texas an even better place to live, work, raise a family and start a business.”
