Reggie Smith is no stranger to District 62 or to the conservative battlefield of fighting for less government, lower taxes, Texas jobs, and secure borders. He descends from a 6th generation Grayson County pioneer family. Reggie and his wife, Stephany, are the proud parents of three children; Reggie Jr., Anna Katherine, and Rhett.
Smith was elected to serve as the State Representative for District 62 in November of 2018. Over the subsequent 2019, 2021, and 2023 Legislative Sessions, Smith tirelessly fought for his district in the Texas House of Representatives. Notably, during the most recent 88th Legislative Session, the Speaker of the House appointed Representative Smith to serve as Chairman of the House Committee on Elections. Additionally, Smith was selected to serve on the House Committee on Public Health. Throughout his time in the legislature, Smith emerged as a staunch champion of conservative values, including protecting the unborn, lowering taxes, safeguarding second amendment rights, promoting individual liberty, and supporting our schools and teachers.
Smith is the founder and owner of Reginald B. Smith, Jr. PLLC, a general practice law firm which he established in 2003.
