MIDLAND, TX — Conservative leader and businessman Kevin Sparks announced today that he is running for Texas Senate District 31.

“At a time when far-left activists seek to nationalize our elections, indoctrinate our kids with so-called critical race theory, and surrender our southern border to the drug cartels, the hard-working families of Senate District 31 deserve a state senator who will proudly defend our conservative values,” Sparks said.

Kevin is president of Discovery Operating, Inc, a family owned and operated oil and gas company in Midland that has created hundreds of local jobs over almost fifty years. He has previously served as a board member of the Natural Gas Producers Association, Texas Public Policy Foundation, and High Sky Children’s Ranch.

Kevin and his wife Jill understand that strong communities do not exist by accident, which is why they have quietly invested in their community for over thirty years as Young Life and church leaders and board members of local nonprofits. The Sparks are also small group leaders to young couples rearing their own families. They have four adult children and are active members of Stonegate Fellowship Church where he currently serves as an elder.

In his campaign, Kevin plans to focus on the urgent need to secure the border, defend the Second Amendment, protect the right to life, secure our elections, and preserve our strong Texas economy.
