State of Texas Archives: on Jobs

Tom Leppert: I have created thousands of jobs; we need that in DC

Tom Leppert, a former Dallas Mayor and career business executive, said Texas should not send a career politician or a government lawyer to Washington, but instead choose an experienced businessman. "I have created thousands of jobs," Leppert said. "We don't need someone who goes out and gives speeches about free enterprise, but send someone who has been out there and done those sorts of things."
