Special Guest Speaker
Lt. Governor Dan Patrick
Dan Patrick was elected Lt. Governor of Texas in 2014, winning the general election by almost twenty points, including historic levels of support from Hispanic voters and women. A principled and committed conservative, Lt. Gov. Patrick is leading the fight to secure the border, reduce property and business taxes, and address our state’s infrastructure challenges to assure that Texas continues to flourish economically. As Education Chairman in the 83rd Legislative Session, Lt. Gov. Patrick passed some of the most far-reaching education reforms in decades, tackling the problems of failing public schools and giving parents more choices for their children. Dan was twice elected to the Texas Senate from District 7 in Houston and Northwest Harris County. He is a successful small businessman and radio host and is a former television anchor, sportscaster, musician, Christian author and movie producer.
Dan is also involved in his community. He has raised over $16 million for children with disabilities through his radio show and started the first seminary in a Texas prison to train long-serving inmates for the ministry. Dan has been married to his wife Jan, a former schoolteacher, for 41 years. Their son Ryan is a Harris County Criminal Court District Judge in Houston. Their daughter Shane is a registered nurse. Dan is also the proud grandfather of three grandchildren.
