Dallas freshman should be re-elected to Texas House in ’12.

AUSTIN, Texas — State Rep. Kenneth Sheets of Dallas received the endorsement today of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.

“Kenneth Sheets campaigned as a conservative, and on vote after vote in the legislature delivered on his promise to represent his constituents,” said the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Michael Quinn Sullivan. “Kenneth Sheets proved himself to be a consistent, commonsense conservative putting the principles of his voters ahead of the special-interest lobby in Austin.”

Sheets earned the “Taxpayer Champion Award” for his rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index, which examines the votes lawmakers cast votes during the legislative session. First elected in 2010, Sheets defeated a Democratic incumbent in the general election.

Sullivan praised Sheets for his work in protecting Texas’ taxpayers by offering reform-focused legislation.
