The Texas Tribune invites you to join us for coffee and conversation with state Sen. Dan Patricka Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in 2014.

Patrick, R-Houston, has represented Senate District 7 since 2007. He serves as chairman of the Senate Education Committee and sits on 12 committees and subcommittees, including Finance, Sunset, Health and Human Services, and Criminal Justice. He owns and operates talk radio stations in Dallas and Houston, and he hosts a daily talk show when he is free from legislative duties. 


Several times a month, The Texas Tribune hosts a series of conversations featuring prominent elected officials and other newsmakers at the historic Austin Club in downtown Austin. These in-depth discussions are moderated by the Tribune's CEO and editor-in-chief, Evan Smith. Coffee is served before the conversation begins, allowing time for our attendees to mingle. A question-and-answer session afterward offers a chance for the audience to interact with our honored guest.

This series of conversations is generously sponsored by AT&T, BP, Christus Health, and the Texas Coalition of Dental Service Organizations. Special thanks to our promotional sponsor, Deborah Ingersoll of Legislative Solutions. Tribune events are also supported through contributions from our founding investors and members.
