James Rains Texas Capitol

A 15+ year Houstonian and a lifetime Texan, James is committed to the idea that a small, limited government is most responsive to the needs of its citizenry.


Originally from the bucolic countryside of rural east Texas, James was raised with the values and work ethic that flourish in small town America. Early in life he was taught the value of hard work and the necessity of perseverance.

Regardless of ideology, James hopes to work productively with anyone who desires to keep the administration of government honest and fair.
