Please join us for our August Breakfast Connection which will feature mayoral candidates, Tony Buzbee and Bill King.

Presenting first will be Mr. Buzbee.  He has practiced law in Texas for over twenty years.  The New York Times has called him one of the most successful trial lawyers in the country.  He often represents families of workers who have been killed or severely injured on the job.   Before he found success in the courtroom, he attended Texas A&M University.  Upon graduation, he joined the United States Marines as an Infantry Officer and led Recon Marines all around the globe.   After the Marines, Buzbee was accepted into the University of Houston Law Center, graduating summa cum laude.  Tony Buzbee started his own firm after serving as a federal judge’s briefing attorney. He has served as regent of Texas A&M, and endowed the Dean’s Chair at the Texas A&M University School of Law.  In addition to being a former Marine, and business owner, Tony is also a philanthropist and change agent.  To find out more about Mr. Buzbee and his campaign, go to tonybuzbeeformayor.com
