Candidate for
Texas House of Representatives, District 3
Campaign website
Troy Bonin was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 3 of the Texas House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


Bonin's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Border Security

  • Excerpt:"I will support state border patrol, law enforcement personnel (boots on the ground), and technological resources (aerial resources, fencing, and hi-tech monitoring) to get the job done once and for all-- the Texas way. "

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt:"Selective enforcement by the federal government of its own laws undermines the entire rule of law. If Washington won’t do their job, Texas must step in to enforce immigration laws."

Property Taxes

  • Excerpt:"Property Taxes are simply too high. Skyrocketing property taxes are anything but fair and equitable to homeowners, especially our seniors living on a fixed income. Paying indefinite and ever-increasing rent to what amounts to a government landlord needs to end. "

Income Taxes

  • Excerpt:"I will steadfastly oppose any effort to implement a state income tax in Texas. Period. One key reason why the Texas economy has outperformed the national economy is that we have no income tax, and our overall tax burden is among the lowest in the country. I seek to improve Texas’ ranking until we have the lowest tax burden in the U.S."



  • On March 27, the District 3 Republican candidates participated in a debate sponsored by the West I-10 Chamber of Commerce. Video of the debate can be found here.
