South Texas Property Rights Association Endorses Guillen's Re-Election Campaign


AUSTIN- Recognizing his dedication to the property rights of owners in Texas, the South Texas Property Rights Association (STPRA) announced their endorsement of Representative Ryan Guillen (D - Rural South Texas) in his current pursuit for re-election.


"Property rights are a crucial issue in South Texas," said Guillen. "I will continue my fight to ensure that the property rights of land owners are protected."


STPRA was formed in 2006 to educate the public and serve as a strong advocate for the rights of property owners to enjoy and profit from the use of their lands. STPRA also focuses on private landowners and their ethical relationship to the land, concentrating on issues relating to eminent domain, water rights, indemnity, government regulation, and trespassing. Their commitment to bettering the lives of South Texas property owners aligns with Representative Guillen's, as reflected by their endorsement.


As a 6th generation South Texas rancher, Guillen recognizes the importance of protecting Texas property rights. In recent years, he has implemented measures to protect the property rights of South Texans, specifically for Texans challenging their tax appraisals. Guillen also was critical to the passage of legislation that increased the homestead exemption for property taxes from $15,000 to $25,000, reducing the property tax burden for many South Texans.


"I am humbled and pleased to be endorsed by the STPRA," Guillen added. "With their continued support we can fight for the protection of South Texan property rights."


Serving ten rural South Texas counties in the Texas House of Representatives, Ryan Guillen is known for his hard work, fierce independence, and relentless efforts for South Texas families. Recently, Capitol Inside called him a “House Bill Machine,” and a “one-person assembly line for legislation.” Since elected, few other legislators have passed more bills than Guillen.
