About Hugh Fitzsimons:
Born in San Antonio in 1954, Hugh A. Fitzsimons III grew up tending cattle on the same family land on which he operates a grass-fed bison ranch today.
After earning a Master’s degree in History, he spent a decade in the classroom teaching and was deeply impacted by working with at-risk kids and young offenders. Eventually the call of the family business lured him back to the ranch and today his organic ‘Thunder Heart’ bison meat and wild honey is sold in restaurants, stores and farmers markets across Texas.
After narrowly surviving the 2011 drought, Hugh has become a respected leader and advocate for public policy around climate change and water conservation including testifying in front of Congress and being featured in The New York Times. Today he is running to be your next Texas Commissioner of Agriculture because he understands that Texas can do a better job of protecting our natural resources while preserving the rich tradition of agriculture that his children and grandchildren now enjoy.
