Biography

State Representative Dustin Burrows was elected to represent House District 83 in 2014 with overwhelming support. Re-elected in 2016, He serves on both the Agriculture and Livestock Committee and the Investments and Financial Services Committee. Additionally, Representative Burrows serves as a member of the Texas House Republican Caucus Policy Committee. The Caucus Policy Committee is tasked with making sound policy recommendations throughout the session to assist the membership on the House floor as they cast their votes.

House District 83 encompasses a wide section of West Texas, including a large portion of Lubbock County, and all of Mitchell, Gaines, Terry, Lynn, Borden and Scurry Counties.

Dustin was born in Lubbock and attended Monterey High School where he was involved with Future Farmers of America, showing pigs and judging 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 eager to return to West Texas and he moved home in 2001. Dustin 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. 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’s political philosophy is based upon the traditional Christian values and a deep appreciation for limited government. He knows that the private sector, not the public sector, creates job and economic prosperity in this State; and, he is committed to keeping taxes and regulations low to allow for that. He is committed to fighting against progressivism and the left’s radical agenda so that Texas can maintain is cultural and conservative identity.

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

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.
