AUSTIN, TX – The Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute (TCCRI) is pleased to announce that State Representative Phil King (R-Weatherford) has received the organization’s prestigious Courageous Conservative Leadership Award. A long-time TCCRI Board member, Representative King has been involved with the organization for over a decade.

Representative King was presented with his award at TCCRI’s annual summer conference meeting. “It is an honor to receive this award,” said Rep. King. “Fundamentally, good government is about bringing all people to the realization that the common good is grounded in faith and liberty. The policies we advance must reflect a healthy respect for those two things through limited government, free markets and federalism. I am honored to receive this award and to be a leader in TCCRI.”

Phil King currently chairs the Texas House Select Committee on State and Federal Power and Responsibility. He also serves on the House Committee on Energy Resources and the House Committee on Environmental Regulation. He is a past chairman of the House Committee on Regulated Industries where he was instrumental in overseeing Texas’ transition to competitive electric and telecommunications markets.

“Phil King is a man of strong character and virtue,” said TCCRI Board Vice President and State Representative Geanie Morrison (R-Victoria). “He epitomizes a blend of conservative principle and common sense governance, and he’s a good friend. Phil is a true leader in every sense of the word. He is smart, he is instinctively conservative, and he is a tireless fighter for what is right and good for our great state.”

Added fellow TCCRI Board member State Senator Kelly Hancock (R-North Richland Hills): “I’ve served with Phil King in the Texas House, and as a Board Member of TCCRI. He is a courageous conservative, dedicated to the common good of all Texans, representing the best interests of his constituents. Of our public sector Board members, he is among the longest-serving, and he consistently adds value to this organization.”

Phil is a native Texan, a graduate of Dallas Baptist University, and received his law degree from Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth. A former captain in the Fort Worth Police Department, Phil is a proud husband, father, and grandfather. He resides in Weatherford, Texas with his wife Terry.

    I cant help but chuckle………………..more high crimes and low comedy in Austin

    A few legislative geeks and their corporate OWNERS form some insignificant “policy” group out of thin air , and then “award” within themselves some “prestigious” recognition………please…..stop………..I cant stand much more of this sick mendacious humor !

    And… is a real shocker – both the Craddick clan members are involved, in once again, their politically-ince$tuou$ relationship with Phil King !

    You remember the King-Craddick coalition, Ethics Committee violations, and the “oops I FORGOT” $25,000 shady campaign contribution issue?

    You highly-enlightened voters in Parker County DO remember that, right ?…..the one King tried to spin to the flaccid local Tea Potty folks here….

    Kruschev said over 50+ years ago ” we spit in their face and they think it is dew “……….thats what this absurd dark comedy “press release” is all about – conning the local 3rd-grade intellect, low-info voters with more ” I-love-Jesus-and-I-am-your-CONservative-hero” nonsense

    And you lap it right up and keep reelecting the mendacious, hubristic bunch of clowns , charlatans and con men to ” serve” you. And they “service you”, allright.

    Stop 6 hookers in Ft Worth have more integrity

    “Prestigious” award…….riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight ! But it sells to the local drones !

    “We can contend with the evil that men do in the name of evil, but heaven protect us from what they do in the name of good.”

    As Author Frantz Fanon notes, “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”
