Welcome to Smith County GOP
The Smith County Republican Party is a volunteer organization focused on preserving Texas values and promoting conservative principles. We strive to be active members of the political process at the grassroots level in order to protect our liberties and continue with the traditions that this great state was built upon.
We are honored to have a message from our Railroad Commissioner Nominee, Wayne Christian.
Wayne Christian is a businessman and former state legislator from East Texas. Wayne graduated from high school as valedictorian, and went on to graduate from Stephen F. Austin State University with a BBA in General Business in 1973.
Wayne served in the Texas House from 1997-2013, where he served as Vice-Chair of Regulated Industries and as a member of the Energy Resource Committee. He is the only candidate in this race with experience in doing what the railroad commission actually does — create an environment that protects our communities while promoting responsible oil and gas production. In the Railroad Commission, his priorities will be to provide consistent, predictable, and science-based leadership and use his experience as a state representative to bridge the gap between the commission and the legislature.
