J.D. Sheffield republican

Dr. J.D. Sheffield is a family physician, not a career politician. He is currently Medical Director at Coryell Medical Clinic and Chief of Staff at Coryell Memorial Hospital. A physician for 21 years, Dr. Sheffield has devoted his life’s work to caring for families in our community.

Dr. Sheffield was elected State Representative in 2012. After taking office, he voluntarily gave up any state pension for his service because he believes that elected officials should serve the people – not the other way around.

In his first term in office, Dr. Sheffield earned a reputation as a conservative leader who puts the families of his district first. He helped to pass a conservative state budget that holds budget growth below the rate of inflation, protects the Rainy Day Fund, and provides $1.36 billion in tax relief. As a physician, Dr. Sheffield understands first-hand that Obamacare is a disaster. That is why he is working to develop a “Texas solution” that will stop federal intrusion into Texans’ healthcare.

Dr. Sheffield also stood firm for his district’s traditional values. He voted to keep Christ in Christmas by protecting the right of Texas schoolchildren and teachers to say “Merry Christmas” and display Christian symbols like Nativity scenes. He was also named a “pro-life champion” for helping to pass landmark pro-life legislation that will save countless unborn lives.

Dr. Sheffield holds a Concealed Handgun License and is a strong defender of Second Amendment rights. That is why he voted to protect gun shows from liberal attacks and ensure the right of law abiding Texans to safely carry and store firearms in their personal vehicles.

Politicians today are quick to pander and make empty promises, but Dr. J.D. Sheffield has proven himself a defender of our Texas values and American freedoms in both words and actions.

Dr. Sheffield lives in a small town outside of Gatesville, Texas, where he serves on the board of directors of his local volunteer fire department. He previously served on the board of his local Boys and Girls Club. Dr. Sheffield and his wife attend church near their home in Gatesville. - JD for Texas Website
