Pat Fallon - Republican (Incumbent)
State Representative Pat Fallon serves the people of Denton County as the elected legislator for House District 106.
The son of public school teachers, Pat is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame where he earned a degree in Government and International Relations and played varsity football under legendary coach Lou Holtz as a member of the 1988 national championship team. He was also a cadet in Air Force ROTC.
Upon graduation Pat received an Officer’s commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force and served as an active duty officer for four years. During his service, he earned the Air Force Achievement Medal and was cited on numerous occasions by superiors and flag officers for outstanding achievement.
After being honorably discharged from the military, Pat embarked on an entrepreneurial journey, founding the first of several companies. He is now the President and CEO of Virtus Apparel, which has a dozen locations across the country and employs nearly one hundred Americans.
In 2009, Pat was elected to an at-large seat on the Frisco City Council, avoiding a runoff and earning an impressive 57% of the vote, despite having three opponents. Two years later, he was chosen by his peers to serve as Mayor Pro Tem. He then went on to run for the Texas House in 2012. In the primary contest, he earned the Republican nomination with over 71% of the vote – the largest margin for an open seat in all of Texas. That November, he was elected to the State House with a resounding 83% of the vote. In fact, he earned more individual votes in this district than either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
These impressive accomplishments show that Pat has his hand on the pulse of this community. His refreshing political philosophy of conservative populism resonates deeply with the great people of Denton County.
In January of 2015, Pat was sworn in for a second term as State Representative for House District 106, which includes the eastern third of Denton County. During his first legislative session in Austin, Pat earned a number of awards and designations including an A+ rating from Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, a perfect voting score from Concerned Women for America, and the title “Courageous Conservative” from both Texas Eagle Forum and the Texas Conservative Coalition. In addition, the Young Conservatives of Texas named Pat one of the Top 5 Legislators of 2013.
Pat sits on the Elections and Special Purpose Districts committees. In addition, Pat’s Republican colleagues elected him as one of just 16 total Members to serve on the Texas Republican Caucus Policy Committee.
Pat has called North Texas home for over 20 years and is happily married to his wife Susan. They have two sons, Thomas and Mac. The Fallons are members of Holy Cross Catholic Church in The Colony.
