Jack Ternan's campaign for Texas Senate District 8 last week released two campaign videos. Jack G. B. Ternan, Jr. is the Democratic candidate for Texas State Senate, District 8.
A native of Plano, Ternan graduated from Plano East Senior High School in 2000. Growing up in Plano and attending public schools, Ternan experienced the fruits of good government: quality public schools, roads, and libraries.
Jack and his wife Ashley reside in Plano with their son Jack III. He is a 2004 graduate of Georgetown
University in Washington, D.C., where he received a bachelor’s degree in government and history. In 2007, Ternan received his law degree from the University of Texas School of Law and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas.
Ternan practices commercial litigation at the law firm of Bickel & Brewer. He is known for being a strong legal advocate for those affected by the City of Farmers Branch’s anti-immigrant ordinances, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and the anti-competitive deal between Southwest and American airlines.
