Join True Texas Project in welcoming a panel of legislative experts this fall as we prepare for the 88th Legislative Session in Texas! We are motivated by the new wave of activists that has been born out of the political turmoil of the last few years. As always, we strive to educate and motivate them to get involved, as we believe that is the ONLY way to cause a shift in the climate and direction of the greatest state on earth! Come and hear from Texans Uniting for Reform & Freedom Texas Right to Life, Texans for Vaccine Choice, Texas Family Project, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, and Texas Gun Rights and see what you need to put on your radar for the next session!

We will also be hearing from Dr. Grant Ferguson, who has extensively researched the idea of Universal Basic Income, and is here to show us what his national surveys on the subject have concluded about where American citizens truly stand regarding this matter.

About Chris Hopper:

I am a 4th generation Texan.  I attended Arlington Baptist University and Louisiana Baptist University and have have a Bachelors in Bible and Counseling.  I have been married for 17 years to Ashleigh Hopper.  We have 3 sons Landon (15), Evan (12), Jack (5).  All the men in the house train in Jiujitsu.  For 2 decades I served as student and missions pastor here in Texas.  My wife and I have helped build 2 schools in Kenya, Africa where we are still heavily involved.  We find great fulfillment in helping over 300 African children annually with medical care, education, and learning a trade with a Biblical worldview being the foundation. While continuing to teach and counsel at our local church, I have moved into the political world in order to make impact for the family.  I have previously partnered with American Principles Project.  APP is an organization designed, at the very core, to fight politicians who hurt the family and highlight and support those who help the family. I am currently working with Texas Family Project. The Texas Family Project wants to make the family the most powerful, well-represented force in Austin. Existing pro-family groups largely focus their efforts on education and tracking legislation, but TFP is interested in doing more to protect Texas families. TFP is activating pro-family forces across the state to take action and fight back against the Left’s anti-family extremism. The family is America’s paramount institution. But it is also the only institution without an effective political arm. At TFP, we envision fearlessly reforming how Texas’ government and its institutions view families, prioritize parental rights, and protect the innocence of children. We seek to fight against the Left’s anti-family extremist agenda by boldly defending family values and ensuring these values transcend all levels of government by electing unyielding lawmakers to represent the pro-family cavalry steadfast our state lawmakers preeminently hold these beliefs.

 

About Tim Hardin:

Tim Hardin serves as the Executive Director of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility. A small businessman, pastor, and former staffer in the Texas House, Tim comes to TFR after serving as chief of staff to State Rep. Jonathan Stickland for seven years. He resides in Fort Worth with his wife Luisa and five children, Elijah, Noah, Micah, Jeremiah, and Selah.

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Chris McNutt:
Chris McNutt is a liberty-minded, conservative activist, consultant, and political professional from Dallas, TX. At age 20, Chris decided to start his own business within the music industry while living in Houston. What initially began as a small music-promotions company eventually grew into a brand of websites that garnered over 70 million visits. With Trill Promotions Group, LLC, Chris managed to forge relationships with many top music labels and artists in the music industry, such as Sony Music Group, Warner Brothers Records, and Atlantic Records, among others. As a business owner, Chris experienced the bureaucratic red-tape of big government.In 2009, Chris realized the promises of President Obama’s “hope and change” were bad for the country. His continuation of George W. Bush’s failed nation-building policies continued and, once “Obamacare” was enacted into law, Chris’s health-insurance premium as a small-business owner nearly tripled. That’s when Chris became encouraged to get involved in politics.After moving back to Dallas in 2011, he became a Precinct Chair in the Dallas County Republican Party and became active in many clubs around the Dallas Fort-Worth area, serving as First Vice President of the Southwest Dallas County Republican Club in 2014, and taking leadership roles at the Republican Party Senate District and State Conventions as a Chairman of the Rules Committee.Chris has volunteered and worked on many political campaigns from city council races to U.S. Senate races. Chris also briefly worked for Americans For Prosperity and also the office of State Senator Don Huffines, as Deputy District Director. Chris founded his own political consulting firm in 2016, Liberty Methods LLC., which helped the winning efforts of multiple campaigns at the local and state level, including State Representative’s Matt Rinaldi and Jonathan Stickland. Chris currently serves as the South Central Regional Director for the National Association for Gun Rights and the Executive Director for their state affiliate, Texas Gun Rights.
