Welcome to Rick Range for Texas General Land Office Commissioner

The Platform

The Most Critical Issue

The Alamo is under attack again. It is being led by the very conservator commissioned to preserve it—Texas Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush. His REIMAGINE THE ALAMO Master Plan will destroy the Alamo as we know it.

Veterans United By A Common Goal

  As a 31-year first responder firefighter, Rick Range is very cognizant of and sympathetic to the issues suffered by a great many of our veterans. Serving their needs will be one of his very top priorities. Housing needs and mental health are two of the most pressing problems that need addressing.  

Texas Disasters

 In 2015 – 2016, Texas experienced six federal disaster declarations that spread across 160 of the state’s 254 counties. These disasters impacted more than 76 percent of the state’s population. Range will work to ensure that Texas gets its fair share of  CDBG-DR Funds.

The Candidate

Rick Range is best qualified to manage the Alamo, veterans affairs, and natural disasters

   Rick Range is a fourth-generation Texan and a lifelong resident of Dallas County where his family has lived since 1890. He graduated from Irving High School and then attended North Texas State University in Denton and West Texas State University in Canyon where he received his B.M.E. Range taught at the junior high and high school levels before becoming a career firefighter with the Mesquite Fire Department. Here he served for over 31 years as a Driver-Engineer and also as Spanish translator for both the fire and police departments.  

For the last dozen years, Range has been heavily involved in research for a book covering all aspects of the Alamo and the Texas War for Independence. He serves as a Board Member of the Alamo Society, an international association of Alamo scholars, researchers, and dedicated enthusiasts. Also a member of the Alamo Battlefield Association, the San Jacinto Battleground Conservancy, and an associate member of the Alamo Defenders Descendants Association, he has spent nearly twenty years in Alamo research in both English and Spanish. 

A few months ago he founded the Save The Alamo Committee along with its associated website and social media in order to get the word out to the voters of Texas about George P. Bush’s disastrous REIMAGINE THE ALAMO Master Plan. On November 1, Range publicly announced his candidacy for the office of Texas General Land Office Commissioner to replace George P. Bush. 

Support for the rick range campaign

First, we want to take this opportunity to thank our many supporters who have so tirelessly worked to assist our efforts. It has been a long uphill battle, but thanks to you, we have made tremendous progress in spreading the message about the dire threat to the future of the Alamo. Now that Rick Range has officially filed as a candidate for Texas General Land Office Commissioner running against George P. Bush, we would like to ask all of our followers and supporters to make a one-time contribution of 25, 50, or 100 dollars to the campaign. So far this campaign has been almost entirely self-funded except for a few generous individuals. We have a specific reason for making this request. If all of our followers donate an average amount of just $30, we will be able to do a statewide mailer to every single Republican Primary voter in State of Texas. In this one mailer we will be able to ensure that each and every voter is fully aware of what Bush has tried to do to the Alamo.
