Is the Texas House of Representatives next?
Clint Bedsole overcame some serious challenges in his early years to become a successful small businessman, husband and father, and community leader. Today, he wants to help make lives better for members of our community as our next conservative representative in the Texas House. A product of Texas’ broken CPS system, Clint lived in about 10 foster homes in his youth, suffering abuse and neglect. His life stabilized when he was adopted by his last foster mom, but the self-reliance and perseverance he developed in his childhood have served him well since. “I believe God put us on this earth to give us trials and tribulations as a means to be molded into servant leadership. My life experiences have motivated me to give back to others.”
Formative years marked by instability might have left some jaded on life and society, but not Clint. In fact, his love of country and desire to protect our constitutional rights led him to join the military as young man. Clint served for eight years in the U.S. Army Reserve Military Intelligence Battalion. He considers the opportunity to serve his country as one of his greatest honors. Clint has become a community leader, furthering his passion to serve others. Currently, Clint serves on the board of CoServ, the second largest electric cooperative in Texas. As an elected board member, Bedsole applies his conservative values, and has successfully fought for lower electric rates and greater transparency. He has served on many commissions and committees for Denton County and the City of Frisco, including the Bond Commission and Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committee.
He also finds time to lead the men’s ministry at his church. A career entrepreneur, Clint is the owner of Epic Carts, one of nation’s largest wholesalers of customized golf carts, such as neighborhood and family sporting carts. Clint knows too well that overly-burdensome regulations kill jobs and the economy, and he understands the challenges that working families face day in and day out. A dedicated husband and father, Clint and his wife, Gina, are the proud parents of twins, Tyler and Mackenzie, and their youngest, Morgan. They all attend Frisco public schools. A conservative Republican, Clint supports lower taxes, free enterprise and the Second Amendment. He is a staunch defender of both fiscal and social conservative principles. As a member of the Texas House, Clint’s first priority will be lowering property taxes that have been driven sky-high by appraisals.
