State Representative Dustin Burrows was elected to represent House District 83 in 2014 with overwhelming support. Representative Burrows was elected by his colleagues to serve as the Vice Chairman of the House Republican Caucus in 2018.
Dustin was born in Lubbock and attended Monterey High School where he showed pigs and judging livestock. After graduating, Dustin went to Rhodes College in Tennessee where he studied economics. From his studies, Dustin developed a deep appreciation for the free market. After graduating from Rhodes, Dustin was eager to return to West Texas and he moved home in 2001 to attend law school.
Dustin has learned that people in all walks of life strive to be lawful members of society; however, the sheer volume and complexity of the laws on the books create a high hurdle to living a lawful and regulatory-compliant life. Dustin’s political philosophy is based upon the traditional Christian values and a deep appreciation for limited government. He knows that the private sector, not the public sector, creates job and economic prosperity in this State; and, he is committed to keeping taxes and regulations low to allow for that. He is committed to fighting against progressivism and the left’s radical agenda so that Texas can maintain is cultural and conservative identity.
Dustin is married to Elisabeth, who grew up in South Texas in a family involved with cattle ranching, oil and gas. They are the proud parents of three boys, Davis, Whitby and Henry.
