Todd Staples will be in San Antonio Tuesday to speak to voters in his campaign for the state's next Lieutenant Governor.
Staples is currently the 11th Texas Commissioner of Agriculture, and is running his campaign for Lieutenant Governor on the beliefs that a free enterprise system and individual responsibility are the keys to prosperity for Texas.
Speaking on the 550 KTSA Morning News with Trey Ware, Staples said he views this election process as a job interview with Texan voters.
"That's why I've developed a contract with Texans that outlines what my vision is for this state, said Commissioner Staples. "Voters need to know where you're going to be on the second amendment, how you're going to make certain we have a transparent government, how you're going to keep taxes low, and how you're going to protect our border and reform our failed immigration system."
The contract, which outlines Staples 6 point plan for the Lieutenant Governor's office if elected can be seen on his campaign website:
Bexar County voters will have two chances to discuss issues with Commissioner Staples. He will join the San Antonio Christian Business Chamber of Commerce for their monthly luncheon on Tuesday, January 21st from 11:30-1:00 pm, and will also speak at a meet and greet with members of the Bexar County Republican Party, later that day, at their headquarters from 2:00-3:00 pm.
At this time, Commissioner Staples will face Incumbent Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, and State Senator Dan Patrick in the GOP Primary Election on Tuesday, March 4th.
