State Representative Steve Allison today announced he will seek re-election to the Texas House. Allison currently serves Texas House of Representatives District 121 in northeast San Antonio and the communities of Alamo Heights, Olmos Park and Terrell Hills.

“Serving the citizens of Texas House District 121 is a genuine honor and responsibility, which I take seriously and hold in the highest regard. It is with this dedication and humility that I announce I will seek re-election,” Allison said. “Working collaboratively with my legislative colleagues, we passed transformational school finance reform, increased teacher pay, cut $5 billion in local property taxes, funded the testing of backlogged rape kits, and protected religious freedom and the right to life.”

In his first term, Allison also passed legislation to strengthen school safety, and provide much-needed mental health programs to prevent tragedies before they happen.

Steve also helped successfully create a commission to study how we select judges in Texas – a priority measure for Governor Abbott. Steve was also chosen by his fellow Republican legislators to serve on the important Policy Committee which advises the full Caucus on the policies that best strengthen the Texas economy and advance the party’s priorities.

“This year was productive, but we have more work to do,” said Allison. “We must ensure the new plan for public education funding is successfully put in place as we focus on improving achievement levels for Texas students. We must further lower property taxes, improve infrastructure investment, and work to give Texas the best medical care in America.”

Allison is an attorney with more than 40 years of experience. Throughout his career, Allison has worked to defend free enterprise. Allison has long been active in his community, including past President of the Alamo Heights School Board and Vice Chair of the VIA Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Steve and his wife, Peggy, have been married for 50 years. They have two adult sons, five grandchildren, and a beloved golden retriever. The Allisons are longtime members of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, where both have taught children’s Sunday school and Steve has served on the vestry.
