Victory Night 2012 with Congressman Jeb Hensarling
Texas Senator Van Taylor and Bunni Pounds on the Senate Floor – January 2017
With over ten years of experience in Republican fundraising and campaign management, Bunni Pounds has raised over $10 million dollars for Congressional candidates and other political clients. She leads one of the best campaign organizations in Texas gaining a reputation as a visionary, meticulous administrator, a strategic campaign consultant, a motivational public speaker and an avid fundraiser.
She started her career as the campaign manager and Texas fundraiser for U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling for over eight years, then launched her own firm, Bunni Pounds & Associates on October 1, 2015 helping clients – that she believes in – fulfill their goals with political fundraising and general campaign consulting.
Bunni’s experience doesn’t just stop at politics. She has thirteen years managing her own three small businesses before her political career, six years in non-profit management, and has orchestrated corporate business meetings, concerts, and Christian ministry events from conception to execution. She has a Bachelor of Arts & Sciences degree in Political Science from Dallas Baptist University and an Associate’s degree in Theology from Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas.
In just over 26 months by the end of 2017, she had built a consulting firm with nine associates, thirty-one clients, and a revenue stream of a half million dollars.
When Congressman Hensarling announced his retirement from Congress (TX-05) at the end of 2017, Bunni desperately tried to find a qualified and principled conservative leader to fill his shoes. Coming up short – she felt a call to run herself and plunged herself into a Congressional race that she never saw coming. In the end – she made it through a field of eight primary candidates into the Republican Primary runoff, but came up slightly short in the end against a sitting State Representative who represented two of the larger counties in the district. During this race, she gained the respect of national and conservative leaders for her hard work effort and principled campaign. She raised more money than any GOP open seat candidate in the State of Texas during the primary season, gained the endorsement of Vice President Mike Pence, became the only Republican woman Congressional candidate in the state to make the runoff election, and built a grassroots army of conservatives throughout all seven counties of the 5th District of Texas.
Taking what she has learned from this experience and adding that to her previous career, Bunni is seen as one of the top fundraisers and campaign consultants in North Texas.
Married for twenty-two years to Tim Pounds, they have two sons, Israel (age 21) who is serving as a missionary in Romania and Ben (age 19), who is attending Bible School in Dallas. They have been active in Christian ministry over twenty years. Bunni is a Bible teacher and public speaker who has authored two books and she helps facilitate missions all over the world.
Bunni Pounds & Associates is a group of servant leaders desiring to make a difference in their sphere of influence for the sake of their state and their nation.
Bunni loves to motivate people to get involved politically in their communities. To book her to speak at your GOP group, community group, or church, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-922-0022
