Profession Small Business Owner, Firefighter
Website Campaign website
Fernando Herrera was a Republican candidate for the District 148 in the Texas House of Representatives in the November 2, 2010, state legislative elections.


  • Degree in Fire Science, Houston Community College[1]

Professional Experience

  • Deputy Fire Chief
  • Founder/CEO of Herrera Products Corporation[1]


Herrera outlines his views on a number of issues on his campaign site:


Excerpt:"All bills for raising revenue considered by the Texas legislature must originate in the House of Representatives. As a Texan, I understand the burden of these escalating taxes; furthermore, as a former small business owner, I understand the frustrations of increasing local and state government demands – property and margin taxes, permits for Dumpsters, automatic alarms, signs, etc."

Fiscal Responsibility

Excerpt:"The Texas legislature is responsible for the appropriation of all funds for the operation of state government. First and foremost, every penny should be spent wisely. Count on me to fight for tighter government spending without sacrificing services."


Excerpt:"Security is one of the most basic of needs and Texans deserve to feel secure in their state and in their homes."


Excerpt:"With a good education, one can work anywhere to earn a livelihood. Upon graduation, a student should have proficiency in reading, writing, and arithmetic, and be prepared to enter the workforce. A high school diploma should actually mean something."[1]
