About Mike Minter for Congress
Mike Minter, owner of Falls Foundation Repair and father of former Sprint Car driver Kathryne Minter and junior barrel racer Grace Minter, will run a race of his own in 2014 for the congressional seat Mac Thornberry has held for the past 18 years. A member of the Texoma Cowboy Church, Minter, a Democrat, is “more comfortable at the Rod and Gun club than the country club” and says, “Texans deserve a congressional representative who is more concerned about the cost of filling-up a pickup truck than the price of jet fuel.” Minter is a self-made man who was born in Fort Worth and grew-up, as he says, “poor, poor, poor,” in Haltom City. Since his humble beginnings, Minter has attained success in business through “old-fashioned hard work and Texas know-how.” In addition to Falls Foundation Repair, Minter owns Indian Capital Group of Texas and Indian Plains Leasing of Nevada. Prior to moving to Wichita Falls, Minter operations manager of MBR Guaranteed Foundation in Arlington and volunteered as the Awana Games leader at Fort Worth’s Temple Baptist Church. Minter says his “strong Christian faith and belief in the value of liberty and education will be the foundation” of his work in Congress.
