About Konni Burton

 
 

Konni is first and foremost a wife, a mom, and a life long Christian.

Born in Kerrville, she was raised in the small South Texas town of Banquete, consisting of little more than a school and a post office. Her father was the high school principal while her mother was the school secretary. After graduating, Konni attended the University of North Texas, where she graduated with a BBA in Marketing. That’s where she met Phil, her husband, also a graduate of UNT. Soon after Phil and Konni married, they moved to Tarrant County where Konni went to work for Olmstead-Kirk Paper Co. After several years, the drive to start her own business took over, and Konni opened her own wedding consulting business, Weddings Ltd.

During that period, Konni and Phil began their work with The Gladney Center for Adoption in Ft Worth. Konni volunteered her time and energy to the Center and held leadership positions on the Auxiliary Board. After their first daughter was placed in their arms, Konni decided to become a full time mother. Konni and Phil adopted their second daughter four and a half years later, also a “Gladney Baby”. The Burtons joined Calvary Lutheran Church in Richland Hills when they moved to Tarrant County. Konni has served on the Church Council, with her husband and children taking active roles in the church as well.

Before becoming heavily involved in Texas politics, Konni simply did her civic duty – voting in elections and working within her church and the community to make Texas a better place to live. But the last decade of out-of-control spending by Democrats and Republicans alike motivated Konni to take action.

Konni joined the NE Tarrant Tea Party and soon began serving on the Steering Committee. She was elected Vice President of the NETTP Board. Senator Dan Patrick formed a Tea Party Caucus preceding the 82nd legislative session, and Konni was asked to be on the Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee. The committee was established to meet with legislators within the Caucus, holding them to account and promoting small government and fiscal responsibility. The Caucus and Advisory committee met during this last legislative session as well. Many Sunday afternoons have been spent traveling to and from the Capitol volunteering for this committee.

Last election cycle, Konni was deeply involved in local campaigns: walking precincts, donating money, and organizing events for conservative State Representatives Giovanni Capriglione, Matt Krause, Stephanie Klick and Jonathan Stickland. She also worked closely with national conservative organizations such as FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservative Fund. Konni was also a DFW grassroots leader for the Ted Cruz campaign, organizing get out the vote events and participating in press conferences supporting the Senator.

With the re-election of Barack Obama in November 2012, Konni began to reevaluate her role in politics. Texas families are under assault by Washington’s big government, excessive debt, and the resulting taxation. The state of Texas must refuse to follow the same path. Proposals in Austin to mimic Washington D.C. must be defeated. Konni is running for the Texas Senate to help Texas families combat government excess and have the freedom to achieve their own goals.

Konni and her family reside in Colleyville.
