Texas House Representative Mayes Middleton is keynoting the Young Conservatives of Texas Convention on Saturday, April 24th. He will be addressing more than 200 members of the Young Conservatives of Texas organization from all across the Lone Star State. As the chairman of the Texas Freedom Caucus, Mayes Middleton describes himself as leading the “mission to amplify the voice of liberty-minded, grassroots Texans who want bold action to protect life, strengthen families, defend the U.S. and Texas Bills of Rights, restrain government, and revitalize personal and economic freedoms in the State of Texas.”
An alumnus of UT’s undergraduate and law school, Mayes started off his career as a businessman in several industries including oil, farming, cattle, and ranching. Since his election in 2018, he has been representing Texas House District 23, and is leading the push to end taxpayer-funded lobbying. As the Secretary of the Chambers County Republican Party, he recently co-founded the Chambers County Ethical Government Board, which can boast such accomplishments as collecting 3,673 signatures to block a $57,000,000 bond and leading the move to make Chambers County adopt local debt and bond transparency rules.
Jordan Clements, the Chairman of the Young Conservatives of Texas chapter at UT, said that “Mayes has shown time and time again what it means to be a true leader in the Texas legislature for his constituents, the Freedom Caucus, and the state of Texas as a whole. I’m looking forward to hearing him speak at the convention this April.”
