Republican Tim Stroud has announced his intention to run against U.S. Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher for Texas’ 7th Congressional District.
In the months leading up to the November election, we will bring you information on Stroud’s accomplishments and experiences and on the initiatives he plans to undertake if elected.
Stroud stands proudly for Republican ideals. He is pro-life, protects the right to bear arms, and supports police officers and law enforcement. He believes it is important to secure the border; protect veterans and improve VA benefits; promote capitalism, including the oil and gas industry; provide affordable healthcare; preserve the integrity of elections; make vocational training accessible to students in the public school system; and limit terms in Congress.
Stroud is a former combat medic in the U.S. Army and was deployed to Kosovo, Kuwait, and Iraq. After receiving an honorable discharge, he returned to Texas, where he decided to use his own experiences to start up businesses focused on supporting veterans transitioning back to civilian life. He also speaks as a subject matter expert on veteran employment, education, entrepreneurship, and support services.
Using his Post-9/11 GI Bill, Stroud studied at Grand Canyon University and graduated with academic honors and a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Management. He followed that with a Master’s Degree in Servant Leadership from the Ken Blanchard College of Business.
Stroud is heavily involved in community service, serving on multiple boards and initiating and leading the Houston Veterans Rotary Club. He was named Impact a Hero Veteran of the Year in 2019.
