March 17th, 2017 18:00pm-March 17th, 2017 21:00pm
Join us in Fredericksburg, Texas the birthplace of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz for the flagship event of the 2017 Admiral Nimitz Foundation Distinguished Speaker Series.
This year our honored speaker is the 48th Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott. Join us Friday, March 17, 2017 at the Parish Center at St. Mary's Catholic Church starting at 6:00 p.m.
The 48th governor of Texas, Greg Abbott continues to build on his long record as a conservative leader who fights to preserve the values Texans hold most dear — faith, family and freedom.
Governor Abbott’s vision for a better future is founded on economic opportunity, education excellence and limited government.
Building on the success of his first two years in the governor’s office that made Texas freer, stronger, safer and smarter, the Governor is committed to forging an even broader path to prosperity for all Texans in the 85th Legislative Session.
His priorities for the session are focused on safety and security, elevating education, economic advancement and the preservation of liberty, and include:
- Reforming the state’s child protective system to prevent any more child deaths
- Increasing penalties and making it a hate crime to target peace officers
- Creating better ways to fund education and providing students the best education possible
- Providing real property tax relief and preventing cities from raising Texans’ taxes without their approval
-And calling for a resolution supporting a Convention of States, as authorized by the U.S. Constitution, to ensure the federal government fulfills important but limited responsibilities while letting Texans govern Texas.
Prior to his election as governor in 2014, Greg Abbott was the longest-serving Attorney General of Texas. He and his wife, Cecilia, have been married for 35 years. She is a former teacher and principal, and the first Hispanic First Lady of Texas. The Abbotts have one daughter, Audrey, a college student.
