State Representative Dustin Burrows was elected to represent House District 83 in 2014 with overwhelming support.

Additionally, Representative Burrows serves as a member of the Texas House Republican Caucus Policy Committee. The Caucus Policy Committee is tasked with making sound policy recommendations throughout the session to assist the membership on the House floor as they cast their votes.

House District 83 encompasses a wide section of West Texas, including a large portion of Lubbock County, and all of Mitchell, Gaines, Terry, Lynn, Borden and Scurry Counties.

Dustin was born in Lubbock and attended Monterey High School where he was involved with Future Farmers of America, showing pigs and judging livestock. After graduating high school, Dustin went to Rhodes College in Tennessee where he studied economics. From his studies, Dustin developed a deep appreciation for the free market. After graduating from Rhodes, Dustin was eager to return to West Texas and he moved home in 2001. Dustin graduated from the Texas Tech School of Law and the Rawls College of Business with a J.D. and M.B.A. in 2004. He began working at the law firm of McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf immediately thereafter. Currently, most of his practice is devoted to representing agricultural producers in Gaines, Terry, Lynn and Lubbock counties.

Dustin has learned that people in all walks of life strive to be lawful members of society; however, the sheer volume and complexity of the laws on the books create a high hurdle to living a lawful and regulatory-compliant life. Dustin’s political philosophy is based upon the traditional Christian values and a deep appreciation for limited government. He knows that the private sector, not the public sector, creates job and economic prosperity in this State; and, he is committed to keeping taxes and regulations low to allow for that. He is committed to fighting against progressivism and the left’s radical agenda so that Texas can maintain is cultural and conservative identity.

Dustin is married to Elisabeth, who grew up in South Texas in a family involved with cattle ranching, oil and gas. They are the proud parents of three boys, Davis, Whitby and Henry.
