Plainview conservative should be re-elected to Texas House in ’12.
State Rep. Jim Landtroop of Plainview received the endorsement today of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.
“In campaigning for office, Jim Landtroop created a ‘contract’ with his constituents that he kept by consistently voting in line with their core values and principles,” said the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Michael Quinn Sullivan. “Jim Landtroop proved he was a consistent, commonsense conservative who put the principles of his voters ahead of the special-interest lobby in Austin.”
Landtroop 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, Landtroop defeated a Democratic incumbent in the general election.
Sullivan praised Landtroop for working to protect Texas taxpayers by putting forward legislation that would have restricted the legislature’s ability to raise taxes, while also working to successfully pass legislation that gives the state more flexibility to in controlling health care costs.
