In 2017, while block-walking the streets of Galveston, Texas for a local State House Race, Bryan Rivera and Michael Jenkins became acutely aware of the insufficiency of affordable block-walking teams available to promote candidates and their campaigns. This is when Michael and Bryan created the idea of Texas Hometown.

President of Operations
Bryan spent 13 years in the emergency management/emergency communications industry before fully crossing over into the political field. Bryan had already volunteered for many political campaigns as a block walker prior to that, and in 2017, Bryan started running several small-scale local and county campaigns. Since then, he has block walked and managed hundreds of campaigns for city, county, and regional teams inside the great state of Texas. He enjoys consulting political campaigns on the ground game side and training candidates on canvassing their districts.
He has bachelor’s degree in Communications from Lamar University, and carries a Master Telecommunicator License in Texas and is a part-time emergency management consultant.
Since 2018, Bryan’s teams have canvassed over a million doors!
Communications and Public Relations
Jessie began her passion for conservative political values at a very early age, learning the art of block-walking by age 6, when her father ran for a local county race. Born and raised in Chambers County, Texas, Jessie has always had a big heart for local politics and small businesses, and owns her own photography business. She learned early on how important the art of communication and writing was to every aspect of her working career. With over a decade of experience working in elementary development, and years of working in geriatric medical assistance, Jessie has always emphasized the importance of learning about local government and community interest from childhood through every year of growth. From the time she and her late husband, Michael Jenkins, first met, they both shared a passion for local politics, and even ran block-walking teams together by their second week of dating! Carrying on her husband’s legacy and passion, Jessie’s devotion as a single mother is what drives her perseverance to change the world, one local political race at a time.
