Austin, Texas – Today, the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) announced the newly elected Board of Directors for the 2013-2014 term, which includes State Representative Ron Simmons (Carrollton) as one of two freshman legislators represented. TCC is the conservative caucus of the Texas Legislature, whose mission is to implement a conservative vision for state government in support of four core principles:
• Limited Government
• Individual Liberty
• Free Enterprise
• Traditional Family Values
State Representative Geanie Morrison, who serves as President of the TCC Board, stated: "State Representative Ron Simmons has already distinguished himself as a thoughtful, principled leader of an outstanding freshman class. His nomination and election to the TCC Board will enhance the organization's long-established effectiveness and improve the chances for conservative success in the 83rd Legislature."
Rep. Simmons added: "I look forward to playing a leadership role in the conservative movement in Austin, working cooperatively with my fellow legislators to advance and defend the principles that have made Texas a national proving ground for principled governance. Texas is extraordinary, and by overcoming our challenges with thoughtful policy solutions, we can be even better.”
