"2011 saw the transition of the New Leaders network from a group of diverse and dynamic Texans supporting one candidate into a stand-alone political action committee that will support numerous candidates across the state. We are very fortunate to have somebody with Kathleen Thompson’s talents and experience serve as our Executive Director, and we welcome Matteson Ellis, along with his vision and enthusiasm, to the Board. In 2012, New Leaders Texas will play an active role in a number of key races throughout Texas, and our efforts in the 2012 cycle will be the first step to achieving our long-term goal of changing the face of Texas leadership."
— Brian Stansbury, President of the Board.
