Dan Patrick Announces Lieutenant Governor Grassroots Advisory Board

AUSTIN – In 2011, Senator Dan Patrick created the Tea Party Caucus and advisory committee. The caucus met regularly with members of the advisory committee to discuss public policy. Today, Lt. Governor Patrick plans on continuing his practice of coordinating with grassroots leaders.

“As promised, and in addition to the Lieutenant Governor Advisory Boards announced recently, it is with great enthusiasm that I announce the Lieutenant Governor Grassroots Advisory Board,” said Patrick.
