Kathie Glass - Candidate For Governor of Texas
First Name: 
Last Name: 
Katherine Youngblood Glass was born in Buford, Georgia.  Her father worked for General Motors as an assembly line worker.  Her mother was a school secretary.  As the first person in her family to go to college, Kathie worked her way through university and then law school.
At the age of 20, Kathie was graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia with a degree in English.  She received many academic honors including Phi Beta Kappa.  At the age of 23, she was graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law.
On 7/7/77, Kathie came to Texas.  She has been a Texan ever since.  She first became involved in the Libertarian Party of Texas in 1978.  With so many others, she worked to obtain the party’s ballot status by petitioning in the long, hot Texas summers.
Her hard work for the party paid off in more ways than one.  In 1981, Kathie met Tom Glass at a state convention in Austin, Texas.  They had their first date at the national convention in Denver.  Tom and Kathie married and raised their two children in Houston, where they have lived for 30 years.  They also have a ranch in Lee County.
Tom and Kathie served on the Texas LP state executive committee from 1982-84.  In 1982, Kathie’s race for attorney general was well received by Libertarians and non-Libertarians alike.  You can view her debate in that race in the Video section of this website.
Kathie has practiced as a civil trial lawyer in Houston for 32 years.  She has worked for large, medium, and small law firms, including her own firm in which she employed as many as 20 employees.  Tom is a systems analyst for a major oil company.  Their daughter Courtney Ayn, a graduate of Rice University, is in law school in California.  Their son Branden is a junior at Texas A&M, majoring in chemical engineering.
A dedicated Texan and a proud American, Kathie seeks to serve the citizens of Texas and the cause of freedom for all Americans as the 48th governor of the State of Texas -- Texas’s first Libertarian governor.
