Clayton knows Working Texans

Clayton Tucker is a 5th generation Texan. From the moment he could wear his own pair of boots, his grandfather put him to work at his family’s ranch in Lampasas.

Clayton spent many years going back and forth between Lampasas and Georgetown, TX. It was in Georgetown that Clayton became an Eagle Scout.

Clayton Tucker went to Southwestern University to study International Politics with a minor in Mandarin, then to the National Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan to study Mandarin. He is a member of Kappa Sigma.

Clayton interned at the Texas State Capitol, worked for an environmental compliance firm in Shanghai, worked as a water researcher for the National Science Foundation, and started teaching Kindergarten in Taipei.

What Clayton learned from this experience shook him to his core. The USA is falling behind. Healthcare in Taiwan cost him $30 a month (1.5% of his salary!) and that allowed him to see any doctor with no out-of-pocket costs. Rural towns had great infrastructure and each farm had solar panels to make them fully self-sufficient. Teachers were paid extremely well―one of Clayton’s coworkers was a new father and his wife was a stay at home mother, his salary as a kindergarten teacher was enough to provide for his entire family, no second or third job required. 

Clayton couldn’t stand to see his county falling behind, so he changed course again and returned home.

After returning to the USA, Clayton Tucker moved back to Lampasas to help repair the family ranch and make it productive again. He helps to manage cows, goats, chickens, guineas, and bees. Clayton also authored a science fiction book called Mandated Happiness―which he describes as 1984 with social media―and became engaged with campaigns.

After working on several campaigns, Clayton started leading a political organization founded by former Texas Agricultural Commissioner Jim Hightower. With Commissioner Hightower, Clayton lobbied the Texas government to provide healthcare for all Texans.  

In 2020, Clayton ran for the Texas State Senate District 24 to ensure better healthcare, education, jobs, justice, and safety for all. His campaign surpassed the expectations of many.

In 2021, Clayton decided to run for Lampasas City Council Place 1 to ensure better healthcare, education, jobs, justice, and safety for all of his neighbors in our rural community.
