Jay Kleberg: Texas Land Commissioner

My name is Jay Kleberg. I've had the opportunity to see much of the Texas landscape and have engaged in hundreds of conversations with Texans from all walks of life through numerous film productions, non-profit endeavors, business enterprises, and ranching operations.

I'm married to Chrissy Kleberg, and we are raising our three daughters, Sophia, Katherine and Amelia in Austin, Texas.

I grew up in an agricultural community in South Texas. My family may have a storied past, but the biggest blessing of my upbringing is that it taught me a deep respect for the land, the meaning of hard work and that our individual freedoms do not negate our responsibility to one another.

Tutt For Texas State Senate

Howdy, folks! I’m Josh Tutt, and I like to think of myself as an average Texan. I grew up homeschooled in a conservative Christian household south of Dallas and got my first job when I was 16 at a local family-owned lumber yard through a mentor from my local Boy Scout troop. I moved to College Station in 2011 and later graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Computer Science, and a minor in Psychology. I’ve worked locally in the Brazos Valley area in the Information Technology industry for over 7 years, and now I am lucky to live with my husband Rick and our dog Trinity in rural Burleson County, where we have started a vineyard together. In my spare time (after the yardwork and chores are done), I enjoy reading, storytelling, board games, and hiking at Lake Somerville State Park. I’ve built my life in Texas, and even put down roots in this soil.

For my whole life, I’ve kept busy trying to make the world around me a better place. I learned reverence for nature as an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, learned leadership as a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets, and learned compassion as a volunteer trainer with the Student Counseling HelpLine (Texas A&M’s crisis prevention hotline). Currently, I serve as the Vice President of Pride Community Center, which services the Brazos Valley region and allows me to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized groups. In my professional life, I’ve organized community blood drives, Employee Resource Groups, coordinated charity drives, and lead volunteer events at the local food bank. My community matters to me, and I will continue to give back however I can.
