Conservative State Representative John Kuempel

Announces for Re-Election

OCTOBER 6, 2023


On the heels of a legislative session that saw the biggest property tax cut in history and a
record-setting $5.1 billion border security investment, Republican State Representative John
Kuempel announced his intention to build on these conservative victories by seeking re-election to Texas House District 44, which covers Guadalupe and Gonzales Counties.

“We’ve just cut property and business taxes by $18 billion. That’s good progress, but
there’s more to do to eliminate this heavy burden on families,” said Kuempel. “We’re also in the
fight of our lives at the border. We’re finishing the wall and we created a new border protection
unit to arrest illegal immigrants. We also designated Mexican drug cartels as the foreign
terrorists they are and passed laws to prosecute fentanyl deaths as murder. But we’ve got to do more. We’ve got to address Colony Ridge and shut down the border completely to criminals 
while fighting Biden along the way. I’m running again to finish the job.”

A native of Seguin, John Kuempel was first elected by conservatives to fulfill the term of
his late father Edmund Kuempel. Since then, Rep. Kuempel has been overwhelmingly re-elected repeatedly due to his success helping to drive Texas further to the right than any other state in America. Rep. Kuempel’s strong conservative values and years of tireless work culminated in the passage of Texas’s abortion ban, Constitutional Carry, the end of sanctuary cities, and now, the complete shutout of the radical “woke” agenda to sexualize children – banning drag shows in front of kids, pornography in school libraries, and biological boys from competing in girls’ sports.

This session, as Chairman of the Higher Education Committee, Kuempel worked closely
with businesses to ensure a strong work pipeline with college graduates fully prepared with the career skills needed to keep Texas the 9th largest economy in the world.

Conservatives hailed Chairman Kuempel’s successful banning of harmful “Diversity,
Equity, and Inclusion” programs from Texas public colleges. Chairman Kuempel also succeeded in establishing a new Texas State Technical College (TSTC) campus in the Comal and Guadalupe County area.

Endorsed by Texas Alliance for Life with a perfect NRA “A” Rating, John Kuempel
stands up for our Christian, conservative values. The Seguin Gazette named Rep. Kuempel “Best Elected Official” of 2023. John and wife, Michelle, are active members of Faith Lutheran
Church and the proud parents of college students, Will and Sam.
