Who & Where

Bill Callegari

District Outlook
Rep. Callegari announced his retirement from the House on Sept. 23, 2013.

Adding to the context of the election is the defeat of a Katy ISD bond proposal that would have added a new football stadium to the district. The district presently has multiple schools sharing a stadium, one of which is the multiple-state-championship Katy Tigers. The bond's defeat emboldened far right activists in the area.

The 2014 GOP primary contest for the open seat features Ann Hodge (President/CEO of the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce), Justin Perryman (attorney), Mike Schofield (aide to Gov. Perry), and Michael Franks (area Tea Party activist). Former Katy Mayor Don Ellers had been rumored to be considering the race, but did not file.
