YCT Endorses Giovanni Capriglione in House District 98
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 12, 2012
AUSTIN — Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today endorsed Giovanni Capriglione for Texas House District 98. Giovanni is challenging Vicki Truitt, one of the worst performing Republicans on YCT’s 82nd legislative score card.
“Giovanni is a proven tax fighter, small business owner, and conservative Republican who has shown a willingness to stand against the establishment in Austin,” commented Tony McDonald, YCT’s Senior Vice Chairman. “Giovanni is committed to the social and fiscal values YCT espouses. He will make a great State Representative.”
“Young Conservatives of Texas do a fantastic job educating voters on whether or not their legislators are voting according to the principles they campaigned on,” said Giovanni. “The conservative voters of House District 98 are not content with the liberal votes Vicki Truitt has taken. I’m extremely grateful for the support of such a rock solid organization like Young Conservatives of Texas.”
YCT’s State Chairman, Jeff Morris, commented on some of Vicki Truitt’s liberal streaks as a legislator. “Vicki Truitt has shown a tendency to fight for higher taxes, more intrusive government, and reduced transparency in government agencies. This is contrary to all bedrock principles of conservatives.”
“The voters of House District 98 must get out and support Giovanni for State Representative.” Morris concluded.
Young Conservatives of Texas has been promoting 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.
