King to speak at BLRW meeting

State Rep. Phil King will be the featured speaker at the Bush Legacy Republican Women’s September meeting.

The meeting is 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Doss Heritage and Cultural Center, located at the corner of Park Street and Texas Street. The cost is $15 and includes lunch.

Representing the state’s 61st district, Rep. King, R-Weatherford, represents the people of Parker and Wise counties in the Texas Legislature. He has earned a reputation as a principle-driven conservative who consistently provides key leadership in passing some of Texas’ most sweeping public policy legislation.

King currently serves on the Energy Resources and Pensions committees. He also serves on the board of directors for the American Legislative Exchange Council, the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute and as vice-chair of the Texas Legislative Tea Party Caucus. As chair of the Regulated Industries Committee for three legislative sessions, he worked to promote competition in the electricity and telecommunications markets. King is a frequent speaker on public policy issues impacting Texas.

King serves as a lieutenant colonel in the Texas State Guard, one of three branches of the military forces of the State of Texas. The Guard assists and augments the Texas National Guard and Texas civil authorities during state emergencies and in homeland security.

He is currently a practicing attorney with the firm of Eggleston Flowers & King. He and his family are active members of Trinity Bible Church. He and his wife, Terry, are the parents of six children and have four granddaughters and four grandsons.

The Bush Legacy Republican Women meet the third Thursday of each month at the Doss at 11:30 a.m.
