Candy Noble has filed to run for Texas state representative, District 89. She is running as a Republican against John Payton in the March 6 primary election.

Community Impact Newspaper sent Noble a list of questions about her candidacy. Below are her answers, edited for publication style.

Q: Why did you decide to run for this office?

A: I am proud to be an American and especially a Texan. I want to leave Texas an even better place for my kids and my grandkids. In order to do that, we must be prudent in our spending and wise in our governing. We must protect the innocent from those that would do them harm. As a volunteer, I have encouraged good government for years, and I am ready to step up and serve at the state level. I have a servant’s heart, and I want to make a difference for good in every arena in which I am called to serve, whether that be my family, my neighborhood or in the Texas House of Representatives serving District 89.

Q: What experience—professionally or politically—do you have that would prepare you for this position?

A: I have a degree in education from Hardin-Simmons University where I serve on the Hardin-Simmons board of development. I also serve on the board of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department. I have served on the State Republican Executive Committee for the last seven years and have advocated for good government and conservative legislation.  In 2015, I served as the chair of the Texas Electoral College. I have also served on various local committees including the boards of Collin County Child Protective Services and Parks and Open Space.

Q: If elected, what would be your top priorities?

  • Property tax relief

  • Quality education for our kids

  • Combat illegal immigration and secure the border

  • Protect constitutional liberties

Q: What else do you want constituents to know about you and your background?

A: I am honored to have earned the endorsements of many outstanding people, including Governor Greg Abbott, Representative Scott Sanford, Representative Matt Shaheen, Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis and many others.  They know me and understand that I am ready to serve the citizens of House District 89.
