|Info||Randy Neugebauer represents the 19th District of Texas, which stretches across 27 counties and includes the cities of Abilene, Big Spring, and Lubbock. He is now in his fourth term in U.S. House of Representatives after first taking office on June 5, 2003. |
Randy serves on the House Committees on Agriculture, Financial Services, and Science and Technology. Through his seats on these committees, he is able to craft policy that supports the district’s diverse interests, including local agriculture, financial institutions and energy providers.
Randy’s hard work during his time in Congress has helped him earn valuable leadership positions on his committees. As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, he serves as the Ranking Republican on its Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Subcommittee. He also serves as Deputy Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over all components of the nation’s housing and financial services sectors. In addition, Randy has been tapped by House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Chief Deputy Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to serve as an Assistant Whip in the House Republican Whip operation.
While in Congress, Randy has developed a track record of promoting fiscal discipline, backing a strong national defense, and fighting for traditional Texas values. Randy’s legislative initiatives include eliminating wasteful federal spending, improving crop insurance, and developing renewable energy sources. He continues to work on legislation that will empower the constituents of the 19th Congressional District rather than making them more dependents on the federal government.
Randy brings years of practical experience in the business world to his work in the U.S. House of Representatives. Prior to his service in Congress, Randy ran his own small business, which focused on residential home building and commercial real estate development.
In addition to running a successful business, Randy was also elected to the Lubbock City Council, serving as Mayor Pro Tempore from 1994 to 1996. He was at the forefront of the establishment of the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor Coalition, whose goal is to enhance regional economic development. Other professional accomplishments include serving as the president of both the West Texas Home Builders and the Texas Association of Builders.
Randy graduated from Lubbock’s Coronado High School and later attended Texas Tech University, graduating in 1972 with a BBA in accounting. Randy is married to his high school sweetheart, Dana, who is a Ropesville native. Together they have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and two grandsons.
