AUSTIN — Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today endorsed Ron Simmons for State Representative in House District 65, a Denton County district where Rep. Burt Solomons is not seeking re-election.
“I’ve had the opportunity to meet personally with Ron and gain insights into his conservative principles and why he is seeking this position. I’m very impressed with his commitment to work for efficient, limited government on behalf of the people of Texas,” said Jeff Morris, YCT State Chairman.
“During these tough economic times, it is important that we have leaders who will hold the line and fight against increased government spending and higher taxes,” said Tony McDonald, YCT Senior Vice Chairman. “I am confident that Ron Simmons will be a strong leader for conservative values in Austin.”
In response to the endorsement, Simmons said, “I appreciate the support and dedication of the Young Conservatives of Texas. During this time in history, it’s reassuring to have patriots like those affiliated with YCT to accept the generational transfer of conservatism and ensure its continuance and growth in the future.”
A businessman, entrepreneur, and family man, Ron Simmons co-founded Retirement Advisors of America (RAA) and continues to serve as its Chairman. More information on his background and qualifications can be found at www.ronsimmons.com.
