Why David Simpson
David Simpson has launched out on this campaign with a desire to fundamentally change the way the Texas House operates. He wants to empower House members to represent their District.
In a recent statement Representative Simpson said “The Speaker is chosen by members of the House to administer the House Rules and the business of the chamber. I believe the choice of Speaker is primarily about earning the trust of and having respect for the members. It is about honoring the process. I believe the Speaker should lead by example, respect principles, and honor the rules. The race should hinge on fairness in administration and not who may amass the most power for their own position.”
