About Titus

Titus Benton is the Democratic Candidate for Texas State Senate in District 17 — a region including portions of Harris, Fort Bend, and Waller Counties as well as the entirety of of Jackson, Colorado, Wharton, and Matagorda Counties.

“Politics should work for everyone” Benton says. “For me, it’s all about loving my neighbor, and not just some of my neighbors. All of them. My BIPOC neighbor and my white neighbor, my rural neighbor and my urban neighbor, my gay neighbor and my straight neighbor, my rich neighbor and my poor neighbor. We can achieve a shared future where we all win.”

A former pastor, and founder of The 25 Group, Titus Benton is a nonprofit executive whose entire career has been centered on public service. Since founding The 25 Group in 2014, he helped raise and distribute nearly $500,000 in more than twenty countries.

This same passion to love his neighbor inspired him to engage politically to improve his community. With two decades of experience working with vulnerable populations, Titus has always been known for his ability to listen, bridge the gap between traditionally distant groups, and a relentless pursuit of justice.

Also an author and speaker for many years, Titus is a seasoned communicator who is insatiably curious. When he’s not working to improve the lives of others he enjoys travelling, reading, and spending time in the woods or at the beach. A Missouri native, Titus has lived with his family in Katy, Texas since 2011.
