Meet Ruth

Ruth is running for democracy

Government for the People

Ruth is a strategic and hands-on problem solver, turning chaos into order while championing worker rights for over 25 years.
Ruth is 3rd of 6 kids to Linda Sue, a country girl from rural Kentucky and Andres from Puerto Rico, both from farming families. Ruth has 5 children, including 3 she took as her own when their mother’s died. In 2023, Ruth is an “empty nester” and a new grandmother. Ruth’s old man is a jealous beast, Chase Trouble.
Raised in Chicago and Miami, Ruth Torres went from being in foster homes, a 10th grade dropout and 2nd generation single mother to become an HR Leader, entrepreneur, business professor, lecturer, author and Executive Director for a non-profit organization for at-risk youth. Ruth’s diverse background exposed her to racial and socio-economic dynamics lighting a passion to foster honest, results oriented conversations to address social justice issues.

Ruth relocated to Dallas in 1997 – 2000, when she completed her Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 5 semesters simultaneously attending Mountain View College and Dallas Baptist University via a daily 14 mile bicycle ride. Ruth attained her Master’s Degree in International Management, HR from Florida International University in 2003, also gaining SPHR and mediation certifications.

Ruth returned to Dallas in 2014 to return to her home church, work and finish raising her children. Instead, she discovered government corruption and discrimination that requires Ruth to shake-off generations of conditioning to accept things as they have always been to fight for rights promised by our constitution. 

These experiences made Ruth realize the need to make things better for all of our children and grandchildren, it’s the motivation behind her commitment to serve.

Ruth is running for Democracy, 
to fight for a government that works for the people instead of against US.

Ruth’s first legislation was to stop street racing after 8 year old Olivia was killed in 2019, gaining bi-partisan support for HB2315, HB3212 & SB1766, passed in 2021 to protect lives across Texas.
