AUSTIN — Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today endorsed Jonathan Stickland for Texas House District 92. Stickland is challenging Todd Smith who performed in the bottom 10% of Republicans on YCT’s ratings of the 82nd Texas Legislature with a score of 61.
Tony McDonald, YCT’s Senior Vice Chairman, spoke very highly of Jonathan in the endorsement. “Jonathan is a strong conservative voice. He will stand up for less government intrusion in the lives of his constituents and is willing to stand alone for what’s right.”
Stickland expressed his gratefulness for the endorsement saying “I’m honored that YCT would stand up and support my candidacy. It’s organizations like YCT who are willing to show courage and conviction on behalf of conservative principles that will make Texas a better state. It is my desire to vote with the values of limited government spending, lower taxes, and personal responsibility which YCT espouses.”
YCT’s State Chairman, Jeff Morris, also praised Stickland and remarked on the need for more true conservatives in the Legislature. “We cannot afford to send back to Austin year after year elected officials who pay no regard to the values of their district. Jonathan is a man who will listen to the needs of conservative voters and have their backs in the House.”
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.
