I’m Hayden Padgett, a husband, public servant, proud Republican activist, and dog rescuer. I’m running to represent you in the Texas House.
I grew up in California’s Bay Area, the second of three boys. I received my bachelors from UCLA, worked briefly as a staffer in Washington, DC, then returned home to start my career in software product management.
In 2017, my now wife and I chose to uproot our lives, leave our families and friends, and move to Texas. We came here because of the abundant economic opportunities, the atmosphere of freedom, but most of all because Texans (and our government) value the same things we do.
