This month we follow up an awesome kickoff by bringing in two amazing Texas patriots! Former State Representative Jonathan Stickland, and Ag Commissioner Sid Miller! Jonathan is famous (or infamous depending on who you ask) for his “Bad Bill of the Week,” he has a knack for telling it like it is. In fact, for this event, Jonathan has promised he WILL be naming names. Sid is a man who wears many hats — of course none better than his signature cowboy hat. He’s a great story teller, a no-holds-barred speaker, and the quintessential Texan. From advising the Trump administration to advocating for Texas goods to being a rodeo cowboy, Sid has experiences to share that will inspire, encourage, and motivate. These two speakers are always sure to fire up the grassroots activists, so don’t miss out on this event, and bring a friend!

About Jonathan Stickland:
Jonathan Stickland represented Texas State House District 92 for 8 years from 2012-2020, coming in on the tea party wave — specifically recruited by NE Tarrant Tea Party (now True Texas Project). He quickly became the voice and hero of the people. He supports limited government, transparency, limiting regulation and most importantly the voters, not the lobbies. Jonathan is well-known for killing bad bills by utilizing the back mic during House sessions. He authored the “Bad Bill of the Week,” and he loves to share stories about what happens behind the scenes in the People’s House. As you can imagine, the Establishment hates him.
ABOUT SID MILLER:
An eighth-generation farmer and rancher, Sid Miller is the 12th Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). He has devoted his life to promoting Texas agriculture, rural communities and the great state of Texas.
Born in De Leon, in Comanche County, in September 1955, Sid Miller graduated with honors from Tarleton State University in Stephenville with a Bachelor of Science degree in Vocational Ag Education.
A recognized community leader, Miller was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2000. He quickly earned a reputation as a staunch defender of Texas agriculture, constitutional freedoms and individual liberties for all Texans.
He was elected statewide as the 12th Texas Agriculture Commissioner in 2014, and re-elected to his second term in office in 2018.
Since taking office as Agriculture Commissioner, Commissioner Miller has brought real, common sense reform to TDA. Within six months in office, he eliminated a two-and-a-half-year backlog in organic certifications. He reshaped field operations to maximize efficiency for Texas taxpayers. This included increasing the number of consumer protection inspections by as much as 183 percent while slashing the miles traveled by TDA inspectors by more than half a million miles a year.
Commissioner Miller also launched Operation Maverick, a consumer protection initiative to round up businesses which failed to register their commercial scales with TDA. Registrations have increased 35 percent, and more than 2,000 previously unregistered businesses are now monitored by TDA to ensure consumers are protected.
A former ag teacher and school board member, Commissioner Miller is committed to fighting childhood obesity and promoting healthy lifestyles for Texas schoolchildren. His creation of Farm Fresh Fridays and other farm-to-school initiatives resulted in a $14 million increase in the amount of Texas products purchased by schools. Commissioner Miller is also passionate about ensuring rural communities have the water and infrastructure they need to thrive. To that end, he created TDA’s Office of Water to ensure all Texans have access to clean water for today and future generations. Additionally, under his guidance, TDA has directed hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding through the Texas Community Development Block Grant program to local communities for infrastructure improvements and repairs.
Commissioner Miller is the state’s leading advocate around the world for Texas agriculture, Texas-grown products and Texas-owned businesses. He oversees TDA’s world-renowned GO TEXAN program — a marketing effort to showcase the best products, companies and communities that call the Lone Star State home. Since taking office, Commissioner Miller’s passion to increase market exposure for Texas agriculture has led him and his staff to mount trade missions to Cuba, Ecuador, Argentina, Israel, China and every continent on the globe, except Antarctica.
Commissioner Miller is a businessman who breeds and trains American Quarter Horses. In his spare time, he is a recognized rodeo cowboy who holds 12 world championship titles.
He and his wife, Debra, have been married for going on 40 years. They have two sons, two daughters-in-law and five grandchildren. They are active members of the Cowboy Church of Erath County, where Commissioner Miller also serves as an elder.
