About Ed Kless
I am running for Texas State Senate in District 8 because I believe that the foundational principles of our country of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have been abandoned by both major political parties. What remains are collectivists on two sides of the aisle – the Republicans who collude with big business and fund expansionist government through unsustainable deficit spending and the Democrats who believe that bigger government is the answer to every problem and fund expansionist government through confiscatory tax policies.
I have finally said it is time to wake up!
Born in Brooklyn, NY, I have lived in Allen, Texas since 2003 with my wife, Christine and two children, Sean and Cara. I have three daughters Cailín, Sionáin, and Éirinn from a previous marriage.
I work for Sage North America as the senior director of partner development and strategy. At Sage, I develop and deliver leadership programs and consult with entrepreneurs daily to assist them in growing their companies.
I am also a senior fellow at the VeraSage Institute, a think tank devoted to professional organizations and the free market. I have served as president of Allen Toastmasters and have spoken on three continents about the power of entrepreneurs and their ability to create wealth.
