Recount Concludes, Macias wins District 73 Republican Primary by 53 Votes

Bulverde – My sincere thanks to the very impressive team of party officials, county officials and volunteers who worked marvelously to conduct the recount in a highly professional manner.

Once again, the closeness of this election is not lost on me. I look forward to reaching out to all communities and all constituents, working to form strong relationships for the good of the district.

I am fully indebted to my excellent staff (Candace Turitto and Adam Bell) and the hundreds of amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure this tremendous victory, but I must say that my family, wife Susan and children (Caleb, Luke, Aaron, Grace, Leah, Hannah and little Abigail) have been the wind beneath my wings. I will be forever grateful to them for the support and energy they brought to the campaign.

I offer my best to Representative Casteel during the upcoming special session as she fights hard for us, the citizens of the 73rd House District. I also give my best to her entire family and hope for their continued success both personally and professionally.

To the citizens of the great 73rd District, I humbly accept your charge to represent you with integrity, and to promote the conservative values of our grand old party and our beloved State. I said throughout the campaign trail that I will run, govern and vote as a conservative Republican, and I will keep my word.

As stated from the beginning, I will be a strong pro-life conservative, work tirelessly to lower the property tax burden and continue to improve our education system. I will crack down on illegal immigration, always oppose the conversion of free roads to toll roads, and go out of my way to protect personal property rights. And as a fiscally responsible conservative I will look for ways to bring efficiency to our state government and eliminate wasteful spending. I will be available, willing to listen, and truly vote the values of the district.

I once again thank you for the opportunity to put my heart of service to work for you in Austin. I will always guard your trust and I will not let you down!

On to victory in November! God bless you and God Bless Texas!
