March Breakfast Connection

March 8, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 7:30 am


Please join us for our March Breakfast Connection which will feature attorney and 2015 mayoral candidate Bill King.  He began his career with a turbulent, and ultimately unsuccessful, foray in the savings & loan industry in the 1980s. His experience in that industry is retold in his 2009 book, Saving Face. Later in his career Bill served as the national managing partner for Linebarger, Goggan, Blair & Sampson, the president of Southwest Airport Services, Inc. and of counsel to Bracewell & Giuliani. 

Bill became a published author in 2004 with an opinion essay in the Houston Chronicle on hurricane evacuation. That essay lead to a 10-year relationship with the Chronicle and the publication of over 400 columns and editorials. From 2011-2015, Bill was a member of the Chronicle’s editorial board. In 2015, Bill published a compilation of his columns in Unapologetically Moderate.

In 1996, Bill was elected to the Kemah City Council. He later served as mayor of Kemah from 2001-2005. He was a candidate for mayor of Houston in 2015. He came in second in the general election but narrowly lost the run-off, in the closest mayoral election in Houston’s history.

Bill has been recognized by the American Leadership Forum with its Jaworski Leadership Award, the Galleria Chamber of Commerce with its Texas Legend Award, the Galveston Bay Foundation with its Guardian of the Bay Award, and the National Hurricane Conference with its Outstanding Achievement Award.

He will be speaking on the topic “How the Two-Party System is Destroying Our Country and What We Can Do About It”.
