True Texas Project is hosting a series of events this fall in order to prepare True Texans for the next legislative session. For this meeting we have invited a handful of our allied state legislators to participate in a panel discussion as a way of partnering with them and working towards accountability in the future. We will be discussing what their expectations are for the next legislative session, what each person’s priorities will be as a representative of the people, and then we will have a time of Q&A from the audience! This is a FREE opportunity to make your voice heard, and to meet face to face with some of the men and women who will be representing the people of this great state.

About Brian Harrison:
Brian Harrison is a passionate and effective advocate for limited government and individual liberty who proudly represents House District 10, comprised of Ellis and parts of Henderson Counties. A native Texan and graduate of Ovilla Christian School, Brian and his family have long been involved in Ellis County and committed themselves to protecting our fundamental, constitutional rights.
During the Trump Administration, Brian served as the Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the largest government agency in the world with a budget of over $1.4 trillion and 25 divisions, where he led a staff of over 85,000 employees.
Under his leadership, HHS protected the unborn, secured the border, increased private health insurance options, advanced government policies that decreased costs, protected patients, increased transparency and accountability, inserted free market forces into the healthcare sector, and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. He helped launch Operation Warp Speed and successfully led historic deregulatory efforts such as sunsetting almost 20,000 regulations, ending unfair taxes, eliminating harmful programs, instituting a taxpayer accountability board, and creating term limits for senior career officials. His actions have been projected to save billions of dollars.
Brian has also held positions at other federal agencies. These include working on sensitive intelligence issues at the U.S. Department of Defense, managing complex domestic and worldwide operations in the office of the Vice President at the White House, and serving in the office of the Commissioner at the U.S. Social Security Administration.

A regular guest on national television, Brian is a leader in the fight to protect liberty against tyrannical, big-government policies that harm Texans.
