FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arlington, Va – GOPAC today announced the addition of New Mexico Speaker of The House Don Tripp to its Legislative Leaders Advisory Board, composed of State Senate and House leaders who provide guidance to GOPAC.
“We welcome New Mexico Speaker of the House Don Tripp to our Advisory Board. We were pleased to do our part in his election as the first Republican Speaker of the House in 60 years by investing in promising candidates in competitive races in 2014 to help earn the majority. As we approach the 2016 elections, there is no higher priority for GOPAC than increasing the number of Republicans in the New Mexico House to maintain our majority,” said David Avella, Chairman of GOPAC. “Speaker Tripp has effectively led House Republicans to show constituents how we can effectively govern to set the right course for job creation, balance the budget and keep New Mexicans safe. The addition of Speaker Tripp will strengthen our roster of conservative, results-focused leaders who are helping to advance our mission to educate and elect the next generation of Republican leaders.”
The Legislative Leaders Advisory Board helps promote successful ideas and policies that Republicans are implementing at the state level, which leads to more private sector jobs, more effective government at lower costs and lower taxes. Members of the Advisory Board, selected for their exceptional leadership in promoting conservative ideas and dedication to electing Republican candidates, keep GOPAC updated on key legislative and political developments within their state in addition to addressing elected officials, candidates, and GOPAC supporters at GOPAC events.
