Austin, TX — Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today announced its endorsement of former State Representative Sid Miller for Agriculture Commissioner.
“During his six legislative sessions in Austin, Rep. Miller was a champion of the conservative movement,” said YCT State Chairman Jeff Morris. “We are honored to endorse him in his bid to become Texas’s next Agriculture Commissioner.”
When he was elected in 2000, Rep. Miller was the only Republican in Texas to defeat an incumbent Democrat. Known as a pro-life advocate and a staunch defender of free enterprise, Rep. Miller authored and passed effective conservative legislation throughout his time in the House. Rep. Miller is a rancher and nurseryman in Stephenville, Texas.
“Rep. Miller is the clear choice to succeed Commissioner Staples at the Agriculture Commission,” said YCT Executive Director Jenna White. “As our state continues to expand and develop, having a conservative and experienced Commissioner will become ever more important.”
“As Texas continues to serve as a magnet for job creation and innovation, the next Commissioner of Agriculture will have to be well-prepared to tackle issues such as border security and water,” Morris added. “Rep. Miller is the only candidate in the race that is qualified to handle these issues in the most effective and principled way.”
Young Conservatives of Texas is a non-partisan organization that has promoted conservatism at universities across the Lone Star State for over three decades. The State’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics. YCT issues the most respected ratings of the Texas legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so without interruption over the past 20 legislative sessions.
