Hill County Democrats to host candidate for Governor of Texas

Hillsboro, TX – The Hill County Democratic Committee is hosting a meet and greet event with Governor of Texas Candidate, Jeffrey Payne on October 19 at 7:00 pm in the public meeting room of the of El Conquistador Restaurant, 1516 Old Brandon Rd Hillsboro, TX.

“This event is sponsored by the Hill County Democratic Committee, but is not a partisan event,” said County Chair Thom Hanson. “The public is invited to attend this open event to get to know the candidate and to speak with Jeffrey personally.”

A successful businessman in Dallas since 2005, Jeffrey Payne is running for governor of Texas. He owns five diverse businesses from a court reporting firm, a land holding company, a property management company, a retail clothing outlet, and a night club. His success in Texas business is exactly what he intends to bring to political office. He wants to see the needs of all Texans being met and not just a select few.

Payne was born in Maine. At only three years old, his mom passed away and he was sent to an orphanage in Louisiana. He spent most of his childhood there, then entered the foster care system at age fifteen. He knows what it’s like to be a child in need. He also knows how effective supportive adults can be in a child’s life. He credits those in his life to helping him become the successful person he is today. He wants to make sure other children have those supportive adults in their lives, too. He also knows a state needs better policies in education, healthcare, environment, labor, and foster care as well as better financial policies and more responsible spending than Texas currently has in order to be successful again.

Jeffrey went through the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. The devastation of that natural disaster left him with the clothes he was wearing, his two dogs, and $2000 in the bank. Katrina took everything else, so he set out for Texas. Starting life over, Payne has rebuilt his life and not only has he been successful in business - he has helped to raise thousands of dollars for charity. In 2010, he also founded Sharon St. Cyr – a non-profit organization that raises funds and provides hearing aids for hearing-impaired individuals and provides grants to organizations for ASL interpreting services. This program is near and dear to Payne’s heart as it's named after his mom and he is hard of hearing as well.

Payne is married to his husband, Sergio, and they live with their adopted puppies. He believes Texans are being shortchanged by the current Texas government and he can make a positive difference. Texans deserve a governor who believes in real Texas values such as integrity, honesty, freedom, and independence. Now is the time for change in Texas politics.
