State Representative Ramón Romero, Jr. is serving in his fourth term proudly representing the people of House District 90 in Fort Worth, Texas. Rep. Romero is currently serving on the House Committee on Insurance and the House Committee on Land and Resource Management.

Through Rep. Romero’s involvement as a neighborhood representative working with the Fort Worth City Council in the 2000’s, he formed long-lasting relationships and was appointed to the Fort Worth Zoning Commission and chair of the Fort Worth Planning Commission during a period that saw Fort Worth’s greatest increase in size and population. These collective experiences fostered his passion for public service, which led to a close loss in a run for Fort Worth City Council in 2012.

 

Still determined to serve his community in public office, he ran again, this time for State Representative in House District 90. In 2014, he won the Democratic Primary for House District 90 in Fort Worth against an 18-year incumbent,

becoming the first Hispanic State Representative in Tarrant County history. During his first term as State Representative, Romero was awarded 'Democrat Freshman of the Year' by his peers after a highly successful legislative session. 

Over the last four sessions, Rep. Romero has filed and passed legislation focusing on cracking down on human trafficking, government transparency, workforce development, mental healthcare access, government bureaucracy streamlining, inmate rehabilitation, and veteran assistance. 

Representative Romero is a lifelong resident of Fort Worth, Texas. He is married to Marilú Romero and a father of four children: Lindsay, Lauren, Giovanni, and Ramon. Rep. Romero started two businesses in his early twenties, A-Fast Tile and Coping and Stone Mason Supply, both of which he still owns and runs to this day.   Representative Romero is a well-respected father, businessman, and community leader who believes that success is measured not by how much you have received, but by how much you have given.
