I'm Nathan J. Milliron and I want to be your next representative in Congress. I'm seeking to represent Texas CD 18 in 2020. I love my country. I love Texas. And I know our brightest future is in front of us.
I'm seeking to unseat a long-term incumbent because the status quo has failed, time and again. Texas CD 18 is not now nor has it ever been a priority in Congress. Instead, it has proven to be a stepping stone for Sheila Jackson Lee to engage cameras and gain personal notoriety. Our current representative seeks only ammunition in a war against democracy aimed solely at illegally unseating a duly elected President of the United States of America.
I support President Trump and many of his initiatives to Make America Great Again. The economy is strong and the homeland is secure yet our representatives have unnecessarily challenged his authority again and again. Our government - one of the people, by the people, and for the people - is broken. The actual work of the people is secondary to political hyperbole and lies largely incomplete.
This is unacceptable and un-American.
I reside in Texas CD 18. I’ve gotten to know the neighborhood and the people and it is time for change. It is time to put our partisan politics aside and it is time to work for our citizens instead of our personal interests. It is time for Congress to do the work of the people and to focus on a balanced budget, healthcare, lower prescription drug costs, infrastructure, education, immigration reform, and border security, among many others sidelined by party politics. We must lower taxes and bolster our military. We must do right by the American people because there can be no doubt that we are the greatest country in the world.
It is time to get to work for the citizens of Texas CD 18 and the United States of America. We must be bold and focused on our collective future. I am up for the challenge and hope you will join me.
United together we can make a difference.
I was born in a small Pennsylvania town where everyone knew one another. We enjoyed picnics and parades, our community was strong, and we did right by one another. I moved around frequently as a child, living in different places and embracing different cultures and ways of life. I graduated from Seton Hall University and the University of Houston Law Center. I've been practicing law in Houston since 2004, currently as a Partner at Hughes, Watters & Askanase, L.L.P.
I'm a Texan now and my heart is in Houston. With that said, my small town values remain important and guide me to this day. My moral compass in strong and necessary in this divisive environment.
I am a lifelong Republican. I am fiscally conservative. I believe in smaller government, lower taxes and a strong military. I am unabashedly pro-life. I believe in our Constitution and the rule of law. I am also a realist and recognize that we have a common destiny and that we can and should work with one another to better our communities. I know that the solutions to our nation’s problems will not be easy and I am cognizant that these very solutions are not likely to come from the far left or the far right on the political spectrum. Instead, they are likely to come from somewhere in between those extremes, in line with the beliefs of the vast majority of Americans, where common sense and decency prevail.
I want to be your next representative in Congress for Texas CD 18. I'm not seeking personal gain or notoriety. I am seeking to work for the people and to do right by them. Those values are lost on Washington. But they aren't lost in my small town heart.
I can't do that job without being willing to engage with the people - hearing their concerns, sharing their triumphs, and building a better future together. I want to hear from you and I want to be approachable as your representative.
Reach out to me. I want to support you. I hope you will support me.
