Little Elm, TX, May 6th, 2019 – Little Elm resident and U.S. Army veteran Jason Mrochek announced today that he is running to represent the 26th district of Texas in the United States Congress. Mrochek is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and serves as the co-founder and executive director of the Patriot Coalition, a nationwide non-profit organization.

Mrochek announced his candidacy in an announcement video on his website http://www.Jason4Texas.comand social media profiles under the username @JasonForTX.

“I am looking forward to re-introducing principled leadership and common-sense constitutional solutions into a body of legislators that has become complacent and ineffective,” Mrochek said. “The first step to getting Congress working again on behalf of Americans is to elect candidates who live regular lives and have to deal with everyday problems.”

Mrochek describes himself as constitutional conservative who fiercely defends liberty and fights for smaller, less-intrusive government while putting America first.

“For many issues we face as a nation, our federal government is not the solution, but rather the problem,” Mrochek continues. “Congress has been avoiding the basic functions of our government such as national defense, securing our borders, and defending individual liberty in favor of spending their time and our hard-earned tax dollars on legislation and hearings that are outside of their scope of authority.”

After being honorably discharged from the Army, and in addition to continuing his service to America as a leader in the liberty movement since 2004, Jason has held positions as a Senior Consultant for a “Big 4” consulting firm, founder and president of a custom software development firm, and analyst for a global medical device company.

During his time leading the Patriot Coalition and FIRE Coalition, Jason has been interviewed on numerous national and local news programs in television, radio, and print to include Neil Cavuto and John Kasich on Fox News, ABC World News Tonight, MSNBC, Lou Dobbs, KFI – Los Angeles, KOGO – San Diego, and more.

Jason currently lives with his wife and 2 youngest sons who still live at their home in Little Elm.
