His name may be well-known among conservative activists across Texas, but Dale Huls – and his equally active wife, Mary – call Clear Lake home.
“My story is probably one that was repeated thousands of times over,” says Huls, “When [Glenn Beck] organized his nationwide ‘We Surround Them’ event in March 2009, Mary and I decided to get off our couch and attend the meeting.”
“Right then and there – the die was cast. Mary and I would never sit on the sidelines again…” and they have consistently proven that through their relentless support for conservative causes statewide.
“Mary and I have worked tirelessly to restore our constitutional republic, fight for limited government and bring God back to our Nation,” Dale said.
Huls, who works as a systems engineer at Johnson Space Center, was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and grew up as a “Navy brat,” spending limited time in Texas before moving here in the late 90s.
He recently received the Conservative Leader Award from Empower Texans, and he serves on the Executive Board of the Clear Lake Tea Party which hosts lunch n’ learns, rallies, debates and grassroots presentations. He is also involved with Texas Border Volunteers, serves as a Republican Party Precinct Chair, and is a former president of the Clear Lake Area Republicans.
Dale is most passionate about border security, human trafficking, classical education, religious liberty, and abolishing abortion. Even with all of those, he still manages to devote time to other conservative causes as well.
“I want Texans to live under the principles of freedom and liberty our God gave us and the Constitution that defines it,” Huls said of his involvement in the movement.
But, he also wants to see the next generation involved as well. “I want to be an example to every person out there that says ‘What can I do?’” And, just as importantly, he said he wants those in power to be uncomfortable if they aren’t delivering on their campaign promises.
When Dale isn’t off fighting for accountability or encouraging involvement, he likes to spend time with his wife Mary, their four children, and two grandchildren. He also loves science fiction and spending time in the woods while guarding the border. He’s currently serving on a board to help found a charter school in Brazoria County.
Dale’s passion for change is unmatched – and he shows no signs of slowing down. “I want the American dream for all Texans,” he says. “I guess that’s why I fight on.”
