  • Neugebauer announces he will not run in 2016
      Denying any heath-related issues, U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer said he is nixing his plans to seek another term in the House of Representatives. Citing a need to spend more time with family, Neugebauer released the following statement: “Every two years, the American people decide who they want to represent them in the “People’s House.” I have asked for that honor seven times, you have overwhelmingly given me that opportunity each time, and I thank you for that. After much thought and prayer, I have decided not to seek re-election in 2016. This was a difficult decision, but I feel this is a good time to end this season of my life and move to another. While I am announcing that I will not seek re-election, I am not walking away from the important work that lies ahead. There are still 15 months left in this Congress, and I am committed to work tirelessly on your behalf until the final gavel ends this Congress in January 2017 and another individual takes that special oath soon after. Over two decades ago, I embarked on a journey that I had never anticipated. In 1992, with the encouragement of friends, family, and community leaders, I offered myself for public service as a member of the Lubbock City Council. I was very fortunate and humbled that the citizens of District Five gave me that opportunity. Thus began a new season in my life. When I decided not to run for a third City Council term, I thought that the season of public service was ending. Little did I know that a few years later, on June 5, 2003, I would be sworn in as the fourth Member of Congress to represent the 19th District of Texas, as well as the 236th Texan and the 9,833rd American citizen to serve in the United States House of Representatives. To say that this has been an honor would be an understatement. Representing the citizens of the Big Country and West Texas has been one of the most rewarding times in my life. Dana and I have had the opportunity to travel this wonderful district and meet many remarkable people. Working for you has been a labor of love. I love this country and spending every day making sure we leave a bright future for the next generation has been my passion. Dana and I have experienced the American dream and I want to make sure that same opportunity exists in the future. There will be a lot of speculation on why I came to this decision. Some will say it’s health reasons; I feel great and I am cancer-free. The bottom line is that I really think this is the right time for my family and me to have more time together. I have a four-year-old granddaughter that I have never been with on her birthday. I am looking forward to the next season God has for Dana and me. I hope it brings more time for family and maybe a little more ...
