About Rising LoneStars

This site aggregates local city and county officials’ contact and election information in Texas’ major counties for political and policy professionals interested in the impacts of local government. Additionally, we collect news items that allow us to identify a non-partisan list of local government officials who take a consistent leadership role in public policy development. These are the Rising LoneStars, or the “ones to watch,” from across the diverse state of Texas. 

Mission Statement

Rising LoneStars is committed to finding the very best leaders amongst elected officials at the local government level. Our team tracks local Texas elected officials while they are on the rise. Our efforts are non-partisan, as we review local government actions throughout the diverse state of Texas. We at Rising LoneStars are on the lookout for local government leaders that will shape tomorrow’s Texas.

What We Do

We are in the business of identifying local government leaders who make a difference. To help us better track who the next Rising LoneStars are, we first have to know who is representing Texans at a local level. We track local elected officials for 35 Texas counties and over 200 of Texas’ largest towns and cities. Our team has created a database with up-to-date information for each of these counties and cities. For each county or city we track, you will find the elected official’s name, precinct/district, contact information, and upcoming election date. Each of these local Texas politicians have been divided into seven regions: West Texas, North Texas, South Texas, Central Texas, East Texas, the Gulf Coast, and the Panhandle/South Plains.


As of now, our services are free, but in the future we will be requiring a small subscription fee to gain access of our Top Ten lists. More details to come.
