ABOUT REGGIE SMITH

Image Title
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 and he and his wife, Stephany, have three children; Reggie Jr., Anna Katherine, and Rhett.

Smith is also the founder and owner of Reginald B. Smith, Jr. PLLC, a general practice law firm which he established in 2003. He is a two term chairman of the Grayson County Republican Party and currently the Northern Regional Director of the Texas Republican County Chairman’s Association. He has also served on the ballot security team for the Texoma Patriots providing election law advice to the local tea party organization in local elections.

In 1991, Smith received his B.S. in Political Science from Austin College in Sherman, Texas and was a member of the Pi Gamma Mu Honor Society. In 1994 he earned his law degree from South Texas College of Law in Houston and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas. Upon graduation, he returned home to practice law. Smith is licensed to practice in Texas, and admitted to practice in federal court including the United States District Court of the Eastern District of Texas and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He has been recognized, locally, as the “Best in Texoma” in the field of Family Law for the last three years.

Smith’s involvement in conservative political causes spans more than 2 decades. From his involvement at Austin College as an officer in the college Republican Club, to his service as a delegate to Republican County and State Party Conventions, he played an important role in the transformation of Grayson County from a Democrat to Republican county. Smith is also a member of the National Rifle Association.

Smith has been active in various local charitable and service organizations. He has previously served on the board of directors of Big Brother Big Sisters, Friends of Scouting with the Texoma Valley Boy Scouts and The Rehab Center among others. He has coached little league teams and devoted much of his off time with his wife Stephany raising their three children.

Smith and his family reside in Van Alstyne, Texas and are active members of the First Baptist Church of Van Alstyne.

ISSUES

2nd Amendment

Reggie believes the right to keep and bear arms was settled when the 2nd Amendment was adopted to the U.S. Constitution in 1791. As an avid hunter and member of the Texas State Rifle Association and National Rifle Association, Reggie will continue to fight any federal government overreach or attempts in Austin that threaten the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.

Secure Borders

Reggie Smith knows that border crime isn’t just a border problem. From drugs to human trafficking, it hurts all of Texas. As state representative, Reggie will stand firm against sanctuary cities and in support of law enforcement by providing them the tools and resources they need to keep our Texas borders safe. Reggie will also work with our Texas delegation in Washington to bring our fair share of federal tax dollars back home to Texas to help pay the cost of securing our borders.

Pro-life

As a husband and father of three children, Reggie deeply values the sanctity of human life. He and his wife, Stephany, have been active supporters of pro-life causes and church programs that promote adoption and protection of the unborn. In Austin, Reggie will continue to fight for pro-life measures.

Limited Government

As native of Northeast Texas, Reggie values hard work and personal responsibility. He understands that the government is not the solution to most problems but rather the cause. As our next state representative, Reggie will vote for common sense reforms that reduce burdensome regulations on small businesses and to cut wasteful government programs so that individuals and families can keep more of what they earn.
