As a fifth generation Texan, Phillip’s relationship with Collin County started long before he opened his first business, a firework stand on Hwy 121. He has fond childhood memories of driving with his father between their family business and their country property in what would become Plano. Phillip watched Collin County develop in front of his eyes, in more than one way.
The Huffines Family has been proudly involved in Denton and Collin for over 90 years with family owned car dealerships and real estate developments. Phillip opened his first business while still in high school, a single firework stand on Hwy 121, which expanded to five locations within a few years in Plano, Lewisville, and Denton. Phillip had caught the entrepreneurial spirit that is still alive in Collin County. For the last 30 years, Phillip and his twin brother, Don, have been developing Collin County, building infrastructure, roads, developing homes, and securing business development such as IKEA and the Frisco Rough Riders Baseball Team.
“I will be a fierce advocate for the freedom necessary for everyone to achieve their hopes and dreams, and pursue liberty, independence, and opportunity for all who call District 8 home.”
As your voice in the Texas Senate, I will fight to seal our border and stop illegal immigration from undermining our laws and sapping our resources. We must be proactive in using Texas’ resources to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, eliminate sanctuary cities, and stop automatic citizenship for children of illegal immigrants and other benefits that give incentives to enter our country.
Phillip started his first business in high school, and the Huffines family has been creating jobs and driving development in Collin County for decades. The entrepreneurial spirit is what has made Texas prosperous, but too often today it’s stifled by burdensome bureaucratic red tape. The fewer regulatory hoops Texas businesses have to jump through to create jobs, the more Texas’ economy will thrive. As your state senator, Phillip will work to help Texas businesses grow without unnecessary government regulations holding them back.
The disaster of Obamacare shows what happens when politicians and bureaucrats meddle in our healthcare decisions. Phillip supports fully repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a market-based approach that reduces regulations and places decisions back into the hands of doctors and patients-and in the state Senate, he’ll fight to stop government interference in Texans’ healthcare choices.
Phillip Huffines thinks property taxes are too high, and that is why he favors requiring cities and other local governments to get voter approval in an election if they attempt to increase property tax bills by more than 4%.
Collin County residents spend four times more than other area residents on toll roads, and that is why Phillip Huffines opposes additional toll roads, wants to have Texas buy back toll roads controlled by foreign interests, and will fight to keep 75 toll free.
Phillip is pro-life and believes that life begins at conception. He believes that we must do everything in our power to protect and uphold life as God-given and precious. Phillip will be a tireless advocate for the protection of the unborn.
