Denise Wilkerson Announces Run for Texas State House District 94

Arlington, TX — Denise Wilkerson announced today her candidacy to unseat extremist incumbent, Tony Tinderholt, and represent Texas House District 94. HD-94 is a flippable district that deserves a representative that cares about the same things they do, not special-interest groups and billionaires.

"My goal is to build a stage, not a soap box. I want to hear from our community about your priorities. I care about what matters to you!"

For over 25 years, Denise has been an active member of the Arlington community. A lawyer, she has served as a criminal prosecutor, and as an assistant city attorney. She's continued giving back to her community, by working and volunteering for several area nonprofits; including serving on two of the Mayor's Advisory Boards. While her kids were in school, she served on the PTA executive board and in various booster clubs in leadership roles. She is now Mom to five successful young adults who continue her legacy of service. Denise is proud to be a United States Naval Aviator's mom. Since 1998, Denise and her husband, Carl, have been members and volunteers of Fielder Road Church.

Wilkerson's priorities include:

  • Protecting public schools and higher education
  • Reducing gun violence
  • Making healthcare accessible and affordable
  • Preserving Texas landscapes
  • Striving for social justice and equality
  • Investing in critical infrastructure
  • Promoting community and compassion
  • Listening to the community

Wilkerson was born and raised by two WWII veterans, and embodies the values of service, faith, and Texas pride. With her lifelong journey of service and dedication to her community, she sees serving as a Texas State House Representative as her next step.

"By addressing systemic issues, and promoting inclusivity, we can build a more just society where everyone's rights and dignity are respected. In Texas, we value hospitality, community, and (most of us) are known for showing a little kindness to those in need," said Wilkerson

Denise Wilkerson is committed to representing the great people of HD-94 with competence, friendliness, and a steadfast commitment to our shared values.

She stands firm on her commitment to work for the betterment of all Texans. Wilkerson believes that by working together, we can make sure that our communities are places where everyone is welcome and respected.
