Republican and fourth generation Ellis County resident Ryan Pitts announced his candidacy for Texas House District 10 on Wednesday.

"Growing up in Waxahachie, and watching as my father served, my childhood was steeped in the values of our community and a focus on our families,” Pitts said. “I’m running to ensure our voice is heard in Austin and that our state government is focused on making our lives better.

“As a new father, nothing is more important to me than the future that we’re creating for our next generation,” Pitts said. “As our state representative, I’ll be a voice for our families – working for stronger schools, safer communities, a more robust infrastructure and a business environment that nurtures growth and opportunity. These are the issues that truly impact our quality of life, and our future.”

Pitts serves as the executive vice president of family-owned Ellis County Title Company and was selected to the list of Ellis County’s “40 under 40” Business Professionals. He serves as the vice president of the Waxahachie Foundation and also serves on the WISD Community Education Advisory Board, as well as the Texas Land Title Association legislative committee and the Waxahachie Family YMCA board of management.

Ryan Pitts is the son of former state Rep. Jim Pitts. He holds an undergraduate degree from Southern Methodist University and a law degree from the University of Texas School of Law. He and his wife Faith Anne are the proud parents of an infant daughter, Evelyn.
