Burnett For a Better Texas.

I’m a Mission Bend native running to represent the place I have called home since I was four years old. I will fight for lower property taxes, expanding Medicaid, and fixing our broken power grid so no Texan ever goes cold in the dark again.

Meet James

James Burnett has been an activist, community leader, and public servant for over a decade. A Fort Bend native, James was raised in the Mission Bend neighborhood and graduated from George Bush High School, where he played varsity football, ran track, and was President of the Debate team.

He worked his way to become a pillar of the Democratic institution in Fort Bend and Harris County.

We've lost a giant among us tonight. When it came to organizing in the Fort Bend-Katy area there was no one better that Jen Cazares. My heart goes out to her family. I'm sending my deepest condolences to them and to anyone who like me, had the privilege to call her friend.
