Lois' hard work in the Legislature has been recognized by groups large and small, from local civic organizations to state and national associations.


"I am pleased to write with the news that you have earned our 2009 Taxpayers' Advocate Award for your exemplary service to the people of Texas during the (2009) 81st Session.

Your pursuit of sound public policy is very much appreciated by the more than 50,000 men and women who work with and through our organization. As measured by our Fiscal Responsibility Index, you consistently put first the long-term interests of a strong, healthy Texas, thereby empowering all Texans.

In addition to the Taxpayers' Advocate Award, you have earned the re-election endorsement of the Empower Texans PAC in the 2010 election. We look foward to working with you to ensure your return to the Texas Legislature."

--Most respectfully,
Michael Quinn Sullivan
