Public invited to hear US Senate candidate Tom Leppert at Jan. 25 luncheon

GARLAND- Republican US Senate candidate Tom Leppert, former Mayor of Dallas, will be the guest speaker at the Lake Ray Hubbard Pachyderm Club luncheon meeting Jan. 25, 11:30 am – 1 pm, at Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse, I-30 & Bass Pro Dr.

The public is invited to attend and ask questions.

The cost is $20 per person for a complete lunch, including drink, tax & tip.

Rather than giving a speech, Leppert prefers to answer questions from the audience, according to Pachyderm Club founder J.J. Smith.

Leppert served as Mayor of Dallas from June, 2007 until 2011. He surprised many by announcing last February his campaign to replace retiring US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, in competition with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. Solicitor General Ted Cruz and others.

Prior to serving as Mayor of Dallas from 2007 to 2011, Leppert led major national and international companies in the areas of construction, financial services and real estate, including serving as CEO of The Turner Corporation, the nation’s largest general building company.

As Mayor, was credited with revitalizing downtown Dallas by persuading more companies to relocate there, bringing more jobs to the city, a new convention center hotel, reducing the crime rate, an improved ethics system and improving Dallas’ education system.

The conservative Republican, who employed tens of thousands as CEO of Turner Construction before entering politics, says a business leader and job creator is what Texas needs as its next US Senator.

Some key points of his jobs plan, listed on his website, are:

  • Institute Fundamental Tax Reform
  • Allow America’s Small Businesses To Grow
  • Give All Americans The Right To Work
  • Put American Energy First
  • Reduce The Role Of Government In Our Lives
  • Save Our Entitlement Programs

“The common practice for Republican politicians today is to rail against President Obama’s economy and call for rolling back his disastrous policies,” said Leppert. “The truth is that Obama has made our situation far worse, but our problems did not start with Obama and they won’t stop by simply rolling back his policies.”

“We are in a crisis that has been created by Washington and can only be fixed by outsiders, not more lawyers and career politicians.”

“This plan is about creating new opportunities that aren’t out there today. Make no mistake; these proposals will change the way our government works. And for those like me who have felt the pull of government holding our country back from its place in history as the “shining city upon a hill,” this plan will restore the greatness that we know our country can achieve.”
