Proven and Courageous Conservative

As a 5th generation Texan, Jim Landtroop has spent 48 years building a family and business in the greatest state God gave man. Married to his wife Cathy for over 23 years, they have 4 children – Braden, David, Kenneth and Lauren Grace. The three oldest are in college – 2 at South Plains and one at UT – while Lauren is enjoying her sophomore year playing volleyball and basketball at Frenship High School. The Landtroop’s own 2 family businesses including one right here in Lubbock. The Landtroop’s attend Harvest Christian Fellowship.

Jim and Cathy are both small business owners, who know the importance of low taxes and limited government. A State Farm agent, Jim started his successful business in 1999 in Plainview, TX while Cathy built Landtroop Strategies from humble beginnings in 2008 to a business that would be sought out by presidential campaigns, statewide businesses and global governments. Her growing business necessitated a move to Lubbock in 2013 and the couple enjoyed coming home to Cathy’s old stomping grounds (a 1991 graduate of Texas Tech University.) Since moving to Lubbock, David graduated High School as athlete of the year from Lubbock Christian while Kenneth graduated 7th in his class from Frenship.

Elected in 2010 to represent 16 counties of West Texas in the Texas House, Jim received numerous awards for his conservative leadership. During his time in office, Representative Landtroop was named the fourth most conservative member of the Texas House of Representatives by the James A. Baker Institute and served on both the Agriculture and Livestock Committee and the Defense and Veterans Affairs Committee. He was Vice-Chairmen of the Rural Caucus and a serving member of the Republican Policy Caucus Committee. Landtroop was also a member of the Legislators Sportsman Caucus and was appointed to represent Texas on the International Energy Council.

Others took note of his good work and strong leadership…

Landtroop decided to run for the Texas House again because of his passion to serve and a desire to see this district represented by a proven fiscal and social conservative, someone that will put the interest of the district ahead of the special interests in Austin.

The word conservative is not a campaign slogan for Jim – it is a belief system, a way of life.
