Biography

Colonel Terry Wilson, US Army (Ret.), was born in Odessa, Texas. He is a committed husband and father, and a decorated combat veteran. He holds a BS in Business Administration from Texas A&M University and an MS in Strategic Logistics Plans and Management from the Air War University.

Terry retired from the Army after serving over 30 years, where he was a highly regarded senior leader within the Department of the Army. He is well versed in major weapons systems development, as well as command and control, communications, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems. As a Department of Defense Acquisition Executive, he managed research and development programs with multi-billion-dollar budgets and partnered in systems development with major corporations and universities.

Terry gained a reputation of exceeding performance expectations while delivering needed capability that was ahead of schedule and under budget. He has extensive experience in providing leadership, balancing budgets, and working with Congress, Homeland Defense, the State Department and foreign governments. Since retirement, he has leveraged that experience as an advocate for exceptional and talented small businesses, helping them break through bureaucracy to deliver technology to our warfighters.

Terry has been married to his wife, Shannon, for 26 years and together they have two sons, William (20) and Benjamin (18). They are members of First Baptist Church in Marble Falls. He is also an Assistant Scout Master and supports local education by speaking to students in the schools and serving on special projects.

As State Representative for House District 20, Terry is honored to serve as the Appropriations Article III chair which oversees all funding for public education and higher education, making up 40% of the entire state budget. Drawing upon his military and leadership experience in research and development, Terry is committed to expanding vocational education opportunities for all students, so they can graduate with a degree, be college and job ready with a certificate in hand.

In the past, Terry has also served on the Higher Education, Criminal Jurisprudence, and Defense & Veterans Affairs committees. Additionally, Terry had the privilege of chairing the Aggregate Productions and Operations Interim Committee. His primary focus was to address nuisance concerns with aggregate production companies without over-regulating and over- burdening industry. This session, he was able to negotiate legislation that encourages industry best practice measures by aggregate production operations and batch plants.

Colonel Wilson is committed to using his leadership experience in government and industry to expand new industrial investment and competitive career training within House District 20 and all of Texas, while lowering the burden on taxpayers.

El Coronel Terry Wilson nació en Odessa, Texas. Es un republicano conservador de toda la vida, esposo y padre comprometido, y combatiente veterano condecorado. Es licenciado en Administración de Empresas de la Universidad de Texas AyM y tiene una maestría en Gestión y Planes Logísticos Estratégicos de la Universidad de Guerra Aérea.

Terry recientemente se jubiló del Ejército después de más de 30 años de servicio, donde era un líder superior muy respetado dentro del Departamento del Ejército. Es bien versado en desarrollo de sistemas de armas importantes, comando y control, comunicaciones, inteligencia, y vigilancia y reconocimiento. Como ejecutivo de Adquisiciones del Departamento de Defensa, dirigió programas de investigación y desarrollo con presupuestos de cientos de miles de millones de dólares y se asoció para el desarrollo de sistemas con importantes empresas y universidades.

Terry es reconocido por superar las expectativas de desempeño con producción de la capacidad necesaria en plazos superadores con presupuestos bajos. Tiene una amplia experiencia en liderazgo, equilibrio de presupuestos y trabajo con el Congreso, Defensa Interior, el Departamento de Estado y gobiernos extranjeros. Desde su jubilación, aprovecha esa experiencia como defensor de pequeñas empresas excepcionales y talentosas y las ayuda a atravesar la burocracia para ofrecerles tecnología a nuestros combatientes.

Terry tiene 21 años de casado con Shannon, con quien tiene dos hijos: William (15) y Benjamin (13). Son miembros de la Primera Iglesia Bautista de Marble Falls, donde trabaja en el Comité de Nominaciones. También es Subjefe de Exploradores y apoya la educación local con discursos para estudiantes en escuelas y trabajo en proyectos especiales. La fe de Terry es una parte integrante de su vida y continuará siguiendo la guía de Cristo al servir a los electores del Distrito 20.
