Meet Shellie

Shellie Gardner is a successful business owner and dedicated conservative who is seeking to bring her wealth of experience and passion for problem-solving to the United States Congress. As a trained electrical engineer, Shellie is used to analyzing complex issues, identifying solutions, and engineering a path forward, but now for the betterment of the nation.

Witnessing firsthand the increase of crime and drugs affecting her own community, Shellie’s primary focus is the urgent need for common-sense solutions to secure our southern border. Biden’s open-door border policy is destroying the very fabric of America. Shellie believes that we must return to Trump-era policies that led to a significant decrease in illegal crossing during his administration.

As a wife and mother of two adult children, Shellie understands the importance of family values and how it intertwines with the American Dream. When Shellie and her husband decided to start a family, they realized her travel schedule would prevent them from the family lifestyle they often imagined. Shellie had some big decisions to make. In 2005, Shellie left a successful career in engineering and real estate, and established Christmas Light Source. This small business now supplies lights across America, including the Christmas Tree at the United States Capitol.

Success as an entrepreneur did not come easy. Gardner relied on her strong Christian faith to guide her through the difficulties that arose. Now an almost 20-year veteran in the lighting business, Gardner looks for opportunities to give back to her community. She is actively engaged in charities in the Fort Worth area, and Shellie and her husband were early donors and enthusiastic supporters of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC.

Shellie wants everyone to have the same opportunities she has been blessed with and realizes that Biden’s policies of over-regulation and taxation put the American Dream further out of reach. Shellie intends to cut regulations, lower taxes, and return our country to the economic growth and prosperity we experienced under President Trump.

With your help, Shellie will take on the disastrous Biden policies with common sense conservative principles and get our country back on the right track.


Economy and Smaller Government

As a fiscal conservative and small business owner, I have experienced the crippling impact of government regulations. Bureaucratic hurdles force businesses to navigate an ever-changing landscape, driving up operational costs that are inevitably passed down to consumers through increased prices. Government needs to get out of the way and allow small businesses to thrive and power our economy. The outrageous inflation we are all experiencing today is a direct result of overregulation and the Biden’s administration’s unrighteous effort to put more citizens on welfare instead of incentivizing them to work.

Securing America’s Border

As an electrical engineer and successful entrepreneur, I bring a unique perspective to addressing the challenges at our southern border. To secure our country, we need a comprehensive approach that goes beyond building walls. Although walls are vital, we must leverage technological advancements and implement strategies that put an end to the ongoing humanitarian crisis at our southern border. We need to send a message to the rest of the world that is loud and clear: America is a nation of laws and borders, and we will protect her at all costs.

School Choice

In Texas, we understand the importance of giving parents educational choices for their children. Parents can choose an array of different options to suit their children’s needs. Unfortunately, at the federal level, education policies neglect the importance of local decision-making and parental rights. I’m committed to bridging this gap and advocating for policies in Congress that put families first. As a mother, I will always fight for our right to be the sole decision-maker in our children’s future.


My father served our country for 20 years in the U.S. Navy. Growing up in a military family, I learned the importance of duty and honor. I am constantly in awe of the brave men and women we have serving in our armed forces. As your representative in Congress, I will do everything in my power to honor those who serve and provide the resources desperately needed to our veteran community. From basic healthcare to complex issues surrounding mental health, we must do everything possible to help those who put their lives in danger to protect our great country.

Law Enforcement

We must recognize the critical role law enforcement plays in upholding the security and well-being of our community. Over the last few years, we have witnessed the consequences of the unthinkable and ridiculous notion of defunding our police departments. This idiotic idea brought pain and destruction everywhere it was implemented. We must fully fund and support our law enforcement officers and create a culture where they are celebrated, not feared.

A Message from Shellie

“We cannot let today’s problems become chaos for my children or yours.  We are at the edge of a cliff, and it’s time to build a bridge to the next great age in American history.  Together we can ensure that our children have the opportunity for success, we have greater personal freedom and a more efficient and effective government.”
