“As a fiscally and socially conservative candidate, my job in office will be to listen to the people of this diverse district and to represent them with excellence ensuring this region reaches its full potential,” said Abraham.
“We all share common goals including quality jobs, great public schools and economic opportunities that will make our community a better place in which to live, work, and raise a family,” he said. Currently serving his eighth year on the Sugar Land City Council, Abraham has served as an at-large council member as well as Mayor Pro Tem sharing his “know how” and “get things done” mentality with a community that has earned national acclaim from its many accomplishments.
Abraham said he will look for better ways to position Fort Bend County for even stronger growth and a healthier economy down the line. “We’re experiencing tough times in our country, but we are blessed in Fort Bend as we find ourselves better off than many of our neighboring regions.”
A pro-life advocate, Abraham added, “I believe in the Republican values of limited government, low taxes, and preserving life, the things that have kept our local community growing strong and I will take those values to Austin.”
A small business owner for over 29 years, Abraham knows what it takes to balance a budget and meet payroll noting that, “we should expect nothing less of those representing us in public office.” And Abraham backs that up with experience. During his tenure in office, he has helped balance the city’s budget while rejecting tax increases.
He and his wife of 29 years, Sarah, have two children, Bryan Thomas and Lauren Alexis. His role as a father, as well as his service as a faculty member for a community college, has positioned him to understand and advocate for the educational needs of the next generation.
Abraham said he leans on his faith to make decisions locally and he will continue to do that as a State Legislator.
Abraham has resided in Sugar Land since 1989. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
