Senator Konni Burton: District 10
Senator Konni Burton is a wife, mother, and 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. Konni attended the University of North Texas, earning a BBA in Marketing. It was at UNT that Senator Burton also met her husband of 30 years, Phillip.
A strong pro-life advocate, Konni and Phil have worked closely with The Gladney Center for Adoption in Fort Worth. The Burtons are proud parents of two “Gladney Babies,” Faith and Tori.
In 2014, Senator Burton won her first bid for elected office by capturing Senate District 10 for Republicans for the first time since 2008. Burton campaigned on a platform of prioritizing taxpayer dollars for transportation infrastructure and education and re-focusing policy on the constitutional functions of government.
Konni and her family reside in Colleyville.
