Outback Steakhouse, 2102 Texas Avenue South, College Station

As always, consider arriving early for dinner and discussion!


Bill Peacock

Our guest speaker for this meeting will be Bill Peacock, policy director for both the Huffines Liberty Foundation and The Energy Alliance.

Bill’s presentation will focus on “The Problem with Big Government.”

Wait. There’s only one problem?

Stay with us now…Big Government is assaulting our liberties on a daily basis. And while it is important to address these attacks, it is like playing whack-a-mole.

Whack-a-mole? My arm’s getting tired…but there is a solution that will work

The only sure way to keep Big Government from taking away our God-given liberty is by making it small. We’ll explore this from the perspective of:

  • the Texas budget,
  • property taxes, and
  • the electric grid.

Oh, and Happy New Year!

We look forward to seeing you for a great kickoff to 2023!
