LEADERS OF THE PAC TXTA TruckPAC Committee 2014-2015


As of July 27, 2015


BY GLENNA K. BRUUN TXTA member support is imperative


to the success of the Texas trucking indus- try and Texas Trucking Association. Our PAC Committee is growing exponentially and we have our members to thank. That support ensures we are a significant force under the capitol dome and that our voice is heard as we represent the best interests of our members and the industry as a whole.


These members make the essential


commitment and provide TXTA with the necessary resources in our PAC account to properly represent our association and sup- port our allies. A strong TruckPAC helps TXTA


maintain our reputation as relevant and influential in all that we do. The strain of highway infrastructure funding will con- tinue to grow and transportation issues will remain at the forefront of public


debate. The association looks forward to shepherding critical trucking issues through the legislative process and keeping our seat at the table as we address concerns, herald successes and support those legisla- tors who understand our industry. Your involvement has made TXTA an


even stronger advocate for the trucking industry. Thank you for your involvement in TXTA’s TruckPAC. With your participa- tion, we can move mountains. R


I am thrilled to kick off this giving season by handing the PAC reins to our new TruckPAC Chairman Richard Minnix. Richard is the first TXTA member to have established an employee-giving model at his company; a grassroots effort at its best. It is a model we look forward to duplicating this year in many more of our


member companies. Looking forward, it is going to be a busy 2015 as we continue to prepare our legislative


agenda in advance of the 85th legislative session in 2017. We have many critical items on the list of “wants” and it will be our job to figure out how to make those “gets.” As I like to say, “I’d rather wear out than rust out” and that will certainly be true as


we hit the ground running this fall. Thank you to all of our members who have been diligent in attending TXTA meetings and giving input to better our association. It takes everyone to keep our voice strong. I look forward to seeing you at the November board meeting where we will begin our strategic planning!
