TEXO Members Stepping Up!


Jack Baxley

Vice President of Government Affairs


The TEXO members who generously support the TEXO-PAC are the reason we as a construction employer association have been very effective in assuring that pro-business, free enterprise, likeminded candidates who support your views receive the backing of TEXO.

To date TEXO in 2013 has received contributions from sixty members who have stepped up in providing personal financial support to TEXO-PAC and we truly appreciate their commitment.

There remains significant work to be done in 2013 and into 2014 as we prepare for local, state and national elections. To be properly prepared we need you as a TEXO member to consider being part of our governmental affairs program by contributing to the TEXO-PAC.

I encourage you to take a moment to review the list of 2013 TEXO-PAC contributors, then consider adding your name to the list.

To make your contribution is a simple process just click here. Please use PAC2013 for the required invoice number.

For additional information on any TEXO governmental affairs program or challenge you may be encountering please contact me.
