Biography

Jay Dean was elected in 2016 to serve as State Representative for House District 7, the area encompassing Gregg and Upshur Counties.

For over three decades, Jay has served Longview and the broader East Texas region as a business owner, civic leader, and consistent conservative. His reputation as a budget hawk and successful job creator on the City Council led to his election as Longview Mayor. Under his leadership, Longview was noted for its responsible budgeting, low tax rates, and economic development. As a result, Longview was ranked one of the top ten U.S. cities for economic growth and earned the distinction of being named one of the "best places for business" by Forbes magazine.

A lifelong conservative Republican, Representative Dean is a strong advocate for cutting the size of government, upholding the Constitution, defending religious liberty, securing the border, strengthening education, advancing the 2nd Amendment, and protecting life. Jay is a graduate of Louisiana State University and the President & CEO of Shale Flow Specialties.

Jay and his wife, Pokie, live in Longview where they raised their three girls and helped found their church, St. Matthews.

Jay Dean fue elegido en 2016 como Representante del Estado del Distrito 7, el área que comprende los condados de Gregg y Upshur.

Durante más de tres décadas, Jay sirvió a Longview y la región mayor del Este de Texas como empresario, líder cívico y conservador constante. Su reputación como halcón económico y exitoso creador de empleo en el Concejo Municipal condujo a su elección como alcalde de Longview. Bajo su dirección, se observó que Longview tuvo presupuestos responsables, bajas tasas impositivas y desarrollo económico. Por lo tanto, se clasificó a Longview como una de las principales ciudades de los Estados Unidos por el desarrollo económico y obtuvo la distinción de ser nombrada uno de "los mejores lugares para los negocios" según la revista Forbes.

El Representante Dean, republicano conservador de toda la vida, es un sólido defensor de la reducción del tamaño del gobierno, la defensa de la Constitución, la defensa de la libertad religiosa, el aseguramiento de las fronteras, el fortalecimiento de la educación, el avance de la Segunda Enmienda y la protección de la vida. Jay se graduó en la Universidad del Estado de Luisiana y es presidente y director ejecutivo de Shale Flow Specialties.

Jay y su esposa, Pokie, viven en Longview, donde criaron a sus tres hijas y ayudaron a fundar su iglesia: St. Matthews.
