Rep. Brandon Creighton represents Texas' 16th House District. He was elected to this seat in 2006 and is currently serving his third consecutive term. Out of the 150 Districts, HD 16 represents nearly half of Montgomery County, and includes Lake Conroe and the surrounding communities, including Montgomery, Conroe, Willis, Cut and Shoot, and Porter Heights.
Brandon is an eighth-generation Montgomery County resident, where he and his family currently live.
Rep. Creighton just wrapped up the 82nd Session and the first 30 day Special Session and is very glad to be back home for the interim. He was honored to be named Chairman of the Committee on State Sovereignty and Vice Chairman of the General Investigating and Ethics Committee. He also served as a member of the Natural Resources Committee and the Pensions, Investments, and Financial Services Committee.
Rep. Creighton had an extremely successful session with these notable positions. He authored and passed two of the Governor's "emergency items". One effort was a major tort reform bill, limiting frivolous lawsuits to further the success of Texas' small businesses. Also, as chair of the State Sovereignty Committee, Brandon was able to spotlight and emphasize Texans' support for the Tenth Amendment, and to pass to Congress a governor-signed Resolution demanding that Congress balance the federal budget while limiting its expenditures. He passed major natural resources initiatives to helped ensure the safety of groundwater by passing a reform that requires notice to local conservation districts when an injection well permit application is filed, and succeeded in breaking up costly monopolies by returning power property owners when it comes to water utilities.
Brandon was named a "Taxpayer Champion," by the Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, and was ranked in the top five of all House Members, based on the Fiscal Responsibility Index.
Brandon is a graduate of the University of Texas and holds his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Oklahoma City University School of Law. He and his wife Fawn reside in Conroe and have two children. In his spare time he enjoys Texas history, hunting, and fishing.last updated on 08/08/2011
