Biography: 
“My greatest motivation other than my faith in Jesus Christ is the desire for my children and grandchildren to have the liberty and opportunity that Americans have enjoyed throughout our History as a State and nation.” ~ Terry Holcomb
 
Terry Holcomb Sr. was born October 12, 1968 on a naval base in Oak Harbor, Washington State while his father was serving in Vietnam. He grew up in Humble TX when the artesian well was still a main attraction. After graduating from high school, he became a millwright apprentice and became a journey millwright 5 years later. From there he worked on nuclear power plants across the nation. His team would disassemble the reactors for shutdown maintenance, rebuild the control rod drives and then reassemble them for start-up. 
 
In 2000, he went to work for the Dow Chemical Company. He has been part of many great teams within Dow and continues to work there to this day.  In 2009 when Dow Chemical acquired Rohm and Hass, He was part of the transition team that was brought in to facilitate the change. He continues working within dynamic teams developing learning strategies, leading major learning projects and continues to develop a “best in class” learning culture. 
 
In a life-changing event, in 2003 he was called into the service of the Lord Jesus Christ as a Pastor and in 2004 was led to the CrossRoads Baptist Church as Pastor. He lives in Coldspring, Texas with his wife Gina Holcomb. They have seven children and five grandchildren.  
 
Terry Holcomb reports, “When the 2013 legislature failed to pass many conservative bills even out of committees, I just could no longer accept the status quo. We had super majorities in both chambers and could not govern conservatively. With the major push from the federal government to strip our 2nd amendment rights and a Texas republican legislature that was unwilling to do anything about it, I decided it was time to fight back. I began an activist campaign to send a clear message to the legislature that our 2nd amendment rights will not continue to be infringed upon. Five great bills were sent to Joe Pickett’s committee, which is known as the 2nd Amendment graveyard. Through high intensity activism we have and continue to send a strong message to our elected officials that this must stop.”
 
“What is it that has compelled me to run as your next state representative? I have watched as our National and State officials have continued to strip away the liberties and freedoms that we hold so dear to us. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness on our own land are being taken from those that we love dearly through cronyism and special interest groups. I have watched our children and grandchildren’s future look bleaker and bleaker as the State’s budgets continue to rise through liberal values instead of true conservative values. 
 
 “They say that money buys elections. Maybe, but the truth will set us free.
 
 “When liberal democrats vote in favor of the budget, you know our incumbent Republican representatives have sold us down the river. This has continued to happen both at the National level and the State level. Why? Because we continue to send elected officials that will not stand on and fight for the truly conservative values that elected them.
 
 “It is time to take the fight to Austin. 
 
 “We truly need leaders that will go to Austin and serve the people that elect them. We need leaders that will not waiver with political winds but stand on and actively fight for truthful proven conservative convictions. We need patriots in office that will above all else, honor the Texas and US Constitutions at all cost. 
 
 “I submit to you that I am one of those leaders that will actually not only stand for truly conservative values but also actively fight for those values. 
 
 “No, I am not a politician. I am simply a husband, father, grandfather, pastor and citizen that is saying enough is enough. I hope you will join me and other true conservative candidates that want to take our state back for our children and our grandchildren.”
