FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Plano businessman and conservative radio talk show host, Wayne Richard, is announcing his candidacy for The State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) Senate District 8. The seat is currently held by Neil Katz. Mr. Katz has successfully served Collin County for six years and will not be seeking reelection due to term limits.
Richard is the founder and president of a technology company he launched 24 years ago as well as a conservative political radio host. Richard is running to ensure Collin County is represented in a manner consistent with the vibrancy and financial strength this area provides to the State of Texas.
Wayne stated, “As a business owner, I understand how to establish and work within a budget, meet payroll, and implement an effective strategy and marketing campaign. One of the responsibilities of the SREC is to ensure our party is financially strong and in a position to support and promote the conservative principles of our state platform. The SREC members also work to assist and support the best political candidates in their campaign efforts. Having been a candidate for the Texas House of Representatives several years ago, I understand the challenges, nuances and strategies of running a campaign. My company specializes in Internet based solutions and social media, two disciplines that the Republican Party must embrace and promote if we are to remain competitive with the Democratic machine”.
Wayne is also a strong supporter of our second amendment rights, pro-life legislation and opposes unfunded mandates from Washington.
“I am a driven conservative who has articulated our message on the radio for years and now I believe it is time to help promote our conservative agenda from the inside. I can successfully accomplish this objective by representing Senate District 8 in the SREC” said, Wayne Richard.
Wayne is a graduate of SMU COX School of Business and has been married to his wife Susan for 22 years. They have lived in Plano 14 years and are members of Prestonwood Baptist Church as well as numerous Republican Party and civic organizations. Wayne serves on the Salvation Army Plano Advisory Board as well being the former Chairman on the SMU Business School Alumni Board of Directors where he continues to serve.
