Biography

State Representative Dustin Burrows was elected as Representative for House District 83 with overwhelming support. He was sworn into office on January 13th, 2015, and is currently serving in the 84th Texas legislature. He currently serves on the House Committee on County Affairs as well as the Committee on International Trade and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Dustin was born in Lubbock and attended Monterey High School where he was involved with Future Farmers of America and he showed pigs and judged livestock.

After graduating high school, Dustin went to Rhodes College in Tennessee where he studied economics. From his studies, Dustin developed a deep appreciation for the free market. After graduating from Rhodes, Dustin was anxious to get back to West Texas and he moved home in 2001 and graduated from the Texas Tech School of Law and the Rawls College of Business with a J.D. and M.B.A. in 2004. He began working at the law firm of McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf immediately thereafter with his father. Currently, most of his practice is devoted to representing agricultural producers in Gaines, Terry, Lynn and Lubbock counties. Dustin has learned that people in all walks of life strive to be lawful members of society; however, the sheer volume and complexity of the laws on the books create a high hurdle to living a lawful and regulatory-compliant life.

Dustin is married to Elisabeth, who grew up in South Texas in a family involved with cattle ranching and oil & gas. They are the proud parents of two boys, Davis and Whitby.

El representante Estatal Dustin Burrows fue elegido representante del Distrito 83 de la Cámara con un apoyo aplastante. Tomó posesión de su cargo el 13 de enero de 2015 y se desempeña, en la actualidad, en la legislatura 84.° de Texas. Forma parte del Comité de Asuntos del Condado de la Cámara, y del Comité de Comercio Internacional y Asuntos Intergubernamentales.

Dustin nació en Lubbock y cursó estudios en la Escuela Secundaria Monterey, donde participó en Futuros Agricultores de América, expuso cerdos y juzgó ganado.

Tras terminar su secundaria, Dustin se dirigió a Rhodes College en Tennessee, donde estudió Economía. Gracias a sus estudios, Dustin desarrolló un fuerte aprecio por el mercado libre. Después de graduarse de Rhodes, Dustin estaba deseoso de regresar al occidente de Texas. Retornó a casa en el 2001 y se graduó de la Facultad de Derecho de Texas Tech y el Rawls College of Business con un diploma en Derecho y una Maestría en Administración de Empresas en 2004. Comenzó, entonces, a trabajar en la empresa de abogados de McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf, inmediatamente después, con su padre. En la actualidad, la mayor parte de su ejercicio profesional lo dedica a representar a los productores agrícolas de los condados de Gaines, Terry, Lynn y Lubbock. Dustin ha aprendido que las personas de todas las condiciones se esfuerzan por vivir en sociedad de acuerdo a la ley; no obstante, el mero volumen y la complejidad de estas leyes plasmadas en los libros crean un obstáculo para vivir de manera lícita y cumplir con todas las normas.

Dustin está casado con Elizabeth, quien se crió en el sur de Texas en una familia dedicada a la ganadería y los hidrocarburos. Son los orgullosos padres de dos niños: Davis y Whitby.
