The 2020 Campaign starts now. Election Day 3-3-2020


My name is Joe P. Herrera, and I’ve lived in Natalia, Texas with my wife for over 10 years. I’m the son of Ruben and Elida Herrera from San Antonio, my father is a sales representative for a leading food manufacturer and my mother is a retired child care provider. Growing up, my parents stressed the importance of education and protecting family.  These are the two reasons I am running for State Representative in Texas House District 53 for a second time.     

I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and an MBA from Our Lady of the Lake University.

My career in sales has given me the chance to visit grocery and convenience stores in Kerrville, Junction, Sonora, El Dorado, Hondo and Castroville. Each of these communities, a communities across District 53, have residents who value family and hard work.  

Folks in these community deserve a representative that will actually fight for increased funding for Texas Public schools and for access to high quality health care for all of our families.  Folks deserve a representative that looks beyond political party affliation to find solutions that work for everyone in the district not just those who voted for them.  Anyone can say they will listen to your concerns, but we need someone who is willing to listen to both sides of an argument and work towards a middle ground solution.  

This campaign is about your families, your concerns and working torwards solutions, but what I believe in.  

Come and join the campaign and let's fight for your vision of Texas together.
