Legacy.

Bequest, birthright, heritage, gift, something
received from an ancestor or predecessor.

Our founding fathers handed down a revolutionary foundation for a new democracy in the Constitution, beginning with We the People. Each generation is charged with continuing to add on to this legacy. As Abraham Lincoln said, “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.”

Currently, we are confronted with a crisis in leadership. We the People deserve better than representatives who put party politics before country. The time for empty words and platitudes are over. It’s time for our leaders to match their words with their deeds. It’s time for servant leadership and true representation. We the People are entitled to better. We the People can create better. This is our moment. This is our legacy. This is why I, Lorie Burch, am announcing my candidacy for Congress, representing Texas District 3.

Lorie Burch graduated cum laude from Trinity University in San Antonio, and earned her J.D at the George Washington University School of Law School in Washington, D.C.  Burch is a respected attorney in Dallas, focusing on estate planning. She chose this as her focus because she believes estate planning is not just about material possessions such as money and property, but more importantly, estate planning is about protecting familiesand loved ones and ensuring an individual’s legacy.

Lorie Burch knows we deserve and need representatives who listen to the cares and concerns of all citizens.  Congress must step away from the political polarization that places ideology over the welfare of citizens. Burch believes it is time to seize Our Moment and define Our Legacy.

Legacy is a central theme in Burch’s life, and she has left her mark on both the local and national level. She is the past President of the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA), an organization with the goal of bringing together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support, and national recognition. Locally, Burch has served on the DFW Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Steering Committee (co-chair), North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Black Tie Committee, Lambda Legal, and other organizations promoting human rights and the LGBT community.

Burch has been recognized by locally and nationally for her contributions to women’s causes and the LGBT community. She has been recognized by the North Texas GLBT Chamber Business Person of the Year, one of the Top Ten Business Women of the Year by the ABWA, and she was Chosen by the Dallas Business Journal as a Women in Business honoree.

In addition to her law firm and civic involvement, Burch is also an Adjunct instructor as Southern Methodist University, and a highly sought after public speaker, having delivered speeches to organizations around the country.

Burch is a lifelong Democrat and a long-time resident of Plano, having graduated from Plano Senior High School. She is engaged to Kimberly Kantor, and is a proud and doting stepmom to their two daughters.

Burch knows we deserve and need representatives who listen to the cares and concerns of all citizens.  Congress must step away from the political polarization that places ideology over the welfare of citizens. Burch believes it is time to seize Our Moment and define Our Legacy.
