Randy Weber replaced long-serving congressman Ron Paul as the representative for Texas’s 14th congressional district, defeating opponents from the Democratic, Libertarian and Green parties. Prior to his political career, Weber started his air conditioning business, Weber’s Air and Heat, from scratch in 1981. His first foray into politics came nine years later when he won election to Pearland’s City Council, a position he kept for six years. In 2008, he became a member of the Texas House of Representatives, where he served on the committees of Environmental Regulation and Public Education and as the vice chairman of Border and Intergovernmental Affairs. 

His work in the Legislature did not go unnoticed; he was named the recipient of the Courageous Conservative Award in 2009 by the Texas Conservative Coalition, a legislative caucus formed in 1985 to promote conservative values.
