Tea Party Express Endorses Ron Wright for U.S. Congress in Texas

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Ron Wright for U.S. House in Texas’ Sixth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are excited to support Ron Wright for Congress because he is a principled conservative leader who embodies the Tea Party principles of limited government, lower taxes and economic freedom.

“Having spent three decades in the private sector, Wright understands the struggles that individuals and businesses face every day because of high taxes and overregulation. As Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector, he called upon his private sector experience as he fought to implement tax reforms and return hard-earned money to taxpayers. We are confident he will be an effective leader in the fight to reduce the size, scope and intrusiveness of the federal government and return control of the economy back to job creators and taxpayers.

“After eight disastrous years of anemic economic growth and fiscal irresponsibility under President Barack Obama, things are finally turning around thanks to the principled leadership of President Trump and the conservatives in Congress. Taxes are lower, unemployment is down, economic growth has picked up, and stifling regulations are gradually being repealed. But much more work needs to be done to reign in a federal government run amok and place our country back on a solid fiscal footing. That’s why it is so important to send more conservatives like Ron Wright to Washington to ensure that the job is finished,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Ron Wright is the best qualified candidate in this race. He is conservative to the core and worked to educate people on how property taxes are estimated and charged. As a former City Councilmember, Ron did an awesome job to privatize several things like trash. He has led the fight to take oil and gas revenue and put it in a “Tomorrow Fund” that receives earnings and pays for funding city projects. Ron is forward-thinking, a really great human being, strongly Pro-Life, and will always work to lower taxes. Ron Wright has my full support.” – Craig Ownby, Arlington Lone Star Tea Party, GOP Precinct Chair and Grassroots TEA Party Activist

“Ron has my full support and endorsement. He has proven over the last few years how dedicated he is to the individual taxpayer. As Tax Assessor, Ron fought for property tax reform relief when all the municipalities were against him. He has also supported our efforts to remove red light cameras from Austin, Arlington, and Fort Worth, and has promised to promote a bill to remove them throughout the entire United States. I support Ron because of all he has done in past for people of Texas. Ron Wright has more than proven his salt.” – Kelly Cannon, V.P. of Arlington Tea Party, Tarrant Co. GOP Precinct Chair and Grassroots Tea Party Activist

“I have known Ron Wright for over thirty years, and he is the most conservative man I know. Ron was active in the Tea Party from its inception in 2008. He is as conservative as any conservative you will ever meet. Ron has led with distinction as the Tax Assessor by explaining to the general public how the property tax process works and who votes for property taxes. Ron is a straight up guy and has my full support to be the next Congressman from District 6.” – Dan Fernandez, President, Arlington Tea Party
