About Bud Wymore
Kent “Bud” Wymore, IV, is a husband, father, attorney, and Hays County civic leader. As past Chairman and current General Counsel for the Hays County Republican Party, Bud’s reputation for hard work and getting results has earned the confidence of local party and community leaders. Bud is running for State Representative to give his community an effective advocate and proven problem-solver in the Texas House. Like so many others in his fast-growing district, Bud understands the real-life challenges that face young professionals and their families, and he understands that a Republican victory in November will take more than recycled soundbites and self-promotion—it requires a hard-earned reputation for results and an unquestioned commitment to making the community a better place to live and raise a family.
Bud’s roots run deep in Hays County. The son of a public school teacher and principal, he was educated in Hays CISD schools and graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos. Bud graduated from law school at St. Mary’s University. He began his legal career practicing with former appellate justice Scott Field, before opening The Wymore Law Firm, with a focus on business and real estate law. Bud is an invited Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation for the past three years.
Bud has a history of leadership in the Republican Party. While still attending law school, Bud was elected one of the youngest chairs to ever lead the Hays County Republican Party, taking the helm of the county party amidst a time of internal division and financial strife. Through his diligent efforts in office, Bud restored confidence in the local party organization, dramatically improved party fundraising, and unified Hays County Republicans behind the primary goal of winning at the ballot box in November with a slate of highly qualified and broadly respected county-level candidates.
After concluding his tenure as party chair, Bud continues to serve as the party’s General Counsel. Recently, Bud successfully defended a critical Republican victory in the 2018 general election against a Democratic legal challenge that threatened the narrow Republican majority on the county commissioner’s court. He also served as Parliamentarian for county and senate district Republican conventions, and was appointed by the Hays County Commissioner’s Court to serve on the county’s redistricting committee, where he worked to ensure fair representation throughout the community.
With his wife, Amy, the Wymores reside in Driftwood with their four children, Kent, Isla, Abigail, and Avery, who attend Hays CISD schools. Bud and Amy play active roles in their children’s education, and Bud served two terms on the Campus Leadership Team at his children’s elementary school. For the past six years, Bud has volunteered as a youth sports coach through Neighborhood Sports. The Wymores are members of Driftwood United Methodist Church.
When not practicing law, Bud enjoys playing with his kids, running with his wife, and playing men’s league basketball with his high school buddies—all of whom are ready to lace up their shoes and block walk to elect Bud as their next State Representative.
