Representative James Frank is a longtime resident of Wichita Falls, where he owns Sharp Iron Group and Transland, two manufacturing companies which have over 100 employees.
Currently in his fourth term in the Texas House of Representatives, Frank serves as Chairman of the Human Services Committee as well as a member of the Public Health Committee. His focus on seeing government provide core services more efficiently led to his authorship of House Bill 5 and House Bill 6 in the 85th Legislative Session to reform Child Protective Services (CPS) and its parent agency, the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). He is passionate about limited government that serves constituents rather than bureaucracy, common sense local control, increased personal freedom and responsibility, and will continue to focus on streamlining the functions of government.
James and his wife of 28 years, Alisha, are active members of First Baptist Church of Wichita Falls, where he serves as a deacon and Life Group leader. They have six sons aged 11 to 26.
