(Pflugerville, TX) on Tuesday, local businessman and aerospace engineer George W. Hindman launched his campaign for Congressional District 17, the District being vacated by current congressman Bill Flores.
In announcing his campaign Hindman said, “as a committed Conservative Republican who wants our nation on the right path, I can’t watch from the sidelines while our liberties and values are under attack. It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to fix our national problems. But Washington D.C. is so broken, a rocket scientist might be what we need. Not only am I an aerospace engineer and pilot who has taught astronauts, I’m a successful inventor and entrepreneur. Most importantly, I’m a Christian conservative husband and father who is genuinely concerned with the direction of our nation. Let’s defend our country’s bedrock principles and stand strong for our conservative Republican values.”
Hindman is the owner of Keystone Aerospace, a small business devoted to advanced aerospace research and development. He is also a FAA certified commercial pilot and flight instructor as well as a registered professional engineer and inventor. George holds several patents in mobile computer architectures and wireless communication technologies. His current research involves deep space navigation using extrasolar planetary star systems.
Hindman previously worked in the Mission Operations Directorate at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he taught astronauts and mission controllers how to use the space shuttle’s computers and navigation systems. He also taught the orbital maneuvering techniques that are used during spacecraft rendezvous and proximity operations.
George was born on Texas Independence Day and was raised near historic Valley Forge. His early exposure to the core principles and determination of the founding fathers during the Revolution provides the basis for his belief in the greatness and exceptionalism of America.
A resident of central Texas for over 25 years, George and his wife Delia reside in Pflugerville with their son George and daughter Helen. They are active volunteers for several community organizations as well as various ministries at their church, Saint Mary’s Cathedral.
