Aschere Energy President Alex Parvizian attended a private reception the night of Tuesday October, 15th, honoring Texas Speaker Joe and Julie Straus and supporting his speakership and inspired leadership in advocacy of free enterprise, liberty and prosperity for the benefit of all Texas citizens. Straus represents District 121, which comprises northeastern Bexar County, including part of San Antonio, Texas, and several surrounding communities.

Speaker Straus is in his third term as Speaker of the Texas House, having been re-elected by a unanimous vote at the commencement of the 83rd Regular Legislative Session on January 8, 2013. Joe was unanimously elected Speaker in 2009, and re-elected overwhelmingly in 2011. Under his leadership, in 2010, Republicans reversed a trend of decline and turned a narrow two-seat Republican majority into a 52-seat super-majority, ensuring conservative government.

Since we elected Joe Straus in 2005, he has championed fiscal responsibility, making state government live within its means. As Speaker of the Texas House, he led the House in passing a budget that cut total spending by more than $14 billion. And he's one of the only legislators ever to wipe a tax off the books.

“Texas has the natural resources and talented workforce to be the next frontier of innovation and opportunity. I’m proud to have the support of so many business leaders in our community who understand that it is the private sector that creates jobs—not government,” Straus said. “These endorsements represent thousands of retailers, manufacturers, small business owners, realtors and general contractors in District 121 who work hard every day to create jobs and grow our economy. I will continue to promote policies that maintain an environment for their ongoing success.”

Straus, who was first elected to the House in 2005 and was later elected unanimously as Speaker of the House in 2009, is a lifelong Republican who is committed to fiscally conservative principles that limit unnecessary government regulations, foster job growth and allow for businesses to thrive. The result of that commitment is that since December 2009, 440,000 new jobs have been created in Texas under Speaker Straus’ leadership. Straus understands it is businesses across the state that will keep Texas working, and ensure our state is the best place in the country to call home.

Alex Parvizian stated, "Aschere Energy supports Speaker Straus's inspired leadership in the upholding the sound principles of fiscal responsibility, entrepreneurship and innovation ushering in Texas as the Nation’s leader in economic climate for business”
