Michael Quinn Sullivan, president and CEO of Empower Texans, and its premier project, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, will be the featured speaker at the Jan. 19 meeting of Bush Legacy Republican Women. The meeting will be at 11:45 a.m. at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford.
The Fort Worth Star Telegram has said Sullivan “slays taxpayer dragons in Austin… When the heat is on in Austin, Michael Quinn Sullivan knows how to make it even hotter.”
Texas Monthly recently named Sullivan one of the 25 most influential people working in Texas politics. The article dubbed him “the enforcer” for his ability to motivate grassroots voters. The national political magazine “Campaigns & Elections” listed him as one of the state’s most influential political figures.
A graduate of Texas A&M University, Sullivan has worked as a reporter for two daily Texas newspapers, and served as press secretary to a Member of Congress. He has also trained conservative and libertarian leaders on effective communications strategies.
He spent five years with the Texas Public Policy Foundation, where he served as vice president, before being tapped to lead Empower Texans.
Sullivan’s commentaries have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the state and nation. He is a frequent guest on talk radio programs, and regularly called upon to address policy and political issues before groups across the country.
An Eagle Scout, Sullivan was in Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets and is an avid runner. He is an officer in the Texas State Guard. He lives in Austin with his wife and children.
