Brooks Landgraf - Republican (Incumbent)
Representative Brooks Landgraf is a native son of Odessa whose family has been ranching in West Texas for five generations. Rep. Landgraf helps manage his family's cow-calf operation and mineral interests; he knows first-hand what it takes for a small business to make payroll and the damaging impact over-regulation can have on our economy. Rep. Landgraf is also an experienced business lawyer who has worked in the oil and gas and health care industries. A Permian High School alum, Rep. Landgraf attended Texas A&M University, where he received U.S. Army training in the Corps of Cadets and served as the leader of the university's student senate. After graduating cum laude from Texas A&M, Landgraf earned his law degree from the St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, where he also served as the editor-in-chief of the law review.
Dedicated to giving back to the community that has given so much to him, Rep. Landgraf actively volunteers his time to help West Texas. Rep. Landgraf serves on the Midland-Odessa Transportation Alliance board of directors, the Education Foundation board of directors, and the John Ben Shepperd Leadership Institute advisory council. A proud Eagle Scout, Rep. Landgraf has also been a leader in the Boy Scouts of America, and a member of the state advisory council of YMCA Youth & Government. Rep. Landgraf continues to mentor young adults through the Odessa Teen Court program.
Rep. Landgraf and his wife, Shelby, whose family is from Andrews, have one daughter and are proud to call West Texas their home. They enjoy volunteering together for Food 2 Kids, Catholic Charities and UTPB, and the couple loves spending time together working on the family cattle ranch.
