InfoFull name: Walter Wayne Christian

Wayne Christian (Center), is serving his fourth term in the House, was first elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1996. As the District 9 State Representative, Christian serves Jasper, Nacogdoches, Sabine, San Augustine and Shelby Counties. As a pro-family conservative, he serves as Vice-Chair of Financial Institutions and is a member of Calendars and Human Services. He is also active in the House Rural Caucus, Texas Conservative Coalition and the House Republican Caucus.

Because of many factors, including a $10 billion budget shortfall, this session was one of the most trying in recent memory. However, I am overjoyed with the efforts the state made towards many issues, including major medical malpractice and insurance tort reform, while still showing the resolve to solve state budget issues without increasing the tax burden on citizens in East Texas.

Representative Christian sponsored legislation accomplishing the following: stabilizing the largest source of funding for our school districts while ending dramatic fluctuations of their tax base; allowing Stephen F. Austin State University to renovate their University Student Center; and saving equity for all public schools.

Representative Christian was born in Center, Texas and was raised in Tenaha. In 1973, he graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches with a B.B.A. in General Business and a minor in Marketing. Christian married the former Lisa Lemoine of Shelbyville in 1975. They have three daughters, Liza, 19, Lindsey 17, and Lauren, 13 years old. Rep. Christian is owner of an investment company, and registered representative of Sun America Securities, Inc. of Center. Christian is extremely active in the community as a member of the First Baptist Church of Center, Lions International, Gideons International, Promise Keepers and the Christian Coalition.
