Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has snagged a corporate board position with Energy Transfer Partners, the pipeline company headed by Republican mega donor Kelcy Warren of Dallas, according to regulatory filings made public Thursday.
Warren, a Dallas billionaire, has been a major supporter of Perry’s political endeavors. He donated $250,000 to Perry’s 2012 presidential Super PAC, known as Make Us Great Again, co-founded by Austin lobbyist Mike Toomey.
Records at the Texas Ethics Commission show Warren gave Perry at least $20,000 for his 2010 re-election race.
It isn't immediately clear how much Perry will be paid for his board position. According to regulatory filings published on the company's website, non-employee board directors were paid $50,000 a year in 2013.
Calls placed to Perry representatives and Energy Transfer Partners were not immediately returned Thursday.
