Lt. Governor Dan Patrick Supported by Major Contractor Associations
HOUSTON, TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick announced today the support for his re-election from some of the state’s largest construction groups and organizations. The list includes: Associated Builders and Contractors of Texas PAC; Associated General Contractors of Texas PAC (ABC PAC); Associated Builders & Contractors of Greater Houston PAC (ABC Greater Houston Chapter); Associated Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Contractors of Texas (PHCC Texas); and Texas Construction Association PAC.
“Associated Builders and Contractors of Texas Political Action Committee (ABC PAC) is proud to endorse Lt. Governor Dan Patrick for re-election as lieutenant governor of Texas. Lt. Governor Patrick is a proven champion of free enterprise and a strong advocate for business. As the president of the Texas Senate, he has been integral in the passage of legislation which calls for the practice of neutrality concerning pre-hire collective bargaining agreements when awarding construction contracts using state money or state credit. He has also been a strong advocate for workforce development. Lt. Governor Patrick has demonstrated his understanding of the importance of the construction industry in Texas,” announced Jon Fisher, President and Treasurer of ABC PAC.
Keith Colvin, Texas Construction Association PAC Board Chair added, “The Texas Construction Association PAC is grateful for the support Governor Patrick has given the construction industry in Texas. We endorse Governor Patrick and look forward to continuing to work with him to improve the business climate for the construction industry in our state.”
“The business climate supported by the Lt. Governor allows for ongoing growth. The industry we serve is committed to the comfort, health and safety of the citizens of Texas. Dan Patrick realizes that with the growing infrastructure happening around us, we need to bring the trades back to the schools. Through the passage of SB 22, which created the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH), a road to bringing trades training to the schools was initiated,” said Alicia Dover, CAE, Executive Director PHCC Texas.
