Who is behind Texas Citizens Coalition?

September 26, 2018

You’ve likely been receiving emails from Texas Citizens Coalition, and perhaps you’re curious about who is behind our non-profit. We thought we would take a minute to introduce you to our founder and president, Gary Gates.

Gary is active in his community and local church, Republican clubs, and the Conservative movement. He has served as a delegate for the Texas State Republican Convention, has been a committee member during many convention cycles, and has had the honor of hosting the annual Fort Bend GOP picnic at his ranch. He’s served as a board member for a Pregnancy Resource Center and is a lifetime member of the Fort Bend County Fair Association. Gary is a long-time supporter for several organizations including the Lincoln/Reagan dinner, the Art League of Fort Bend County, a community sports center, and the Foster High School Wrestling program.

Gary also owns and operates his own business, providing jobs for more than 500 people. With a strong belief in capitalism and a commitment to entrepreneurship, he started and built Gatesco, Inc. from the ground up. This business remains today as a family-owned real estate investment company with operations in the Gulf Coast region of Texas and Crested Butte, Colorado. 

Gary is a loving husband and proud father. He has been married to his wonderful wife, Melissa, for thirty-six years, and together they have thirteen children, eleven of whom are adopted. 

Gary started the non-profit Texas Citizens Coalition because he has a passion for individual liberty and preserving the Constitution, and it’s a fight he’s engaged in with every facet of his life. He believes a coalition is needed because it takes all of us being actively involved to move our state and country forward. Simply voting every two years and sending elected officials to Austin or D.C. is not enough. We as citizens must stay informed because We the People are in charge and must hold government accountable. Gary desires to provide Texas citizens a free resource to get useful information about state government from a common sense, conservative perspective. 

We’d love to hear about you and your involvement in the conservative movement, too! Please feel free to shoot us an email to introduce yourself.

In Service,

Texas Citizens Coalition
