Harris County Republican Party (HCRP) Chair Paul Simpson will be the speaker at this week’s meeting of the Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club. This will be a great opportunity to ask him your questions about the disastrous November election results.

From the invite:

Join us for lunch with Harris County Republican Party Chairman, Paul Simpson

About Paul:

A lawyer and engineer by profession, Paul’s lifelong passion has been conservative political activism. A pro-life conservative, Paul has been a Republican political leader since he was in high school. Growing up in and near New Orleans, Paul joined the Louisiana Teen-Age Republicans at age thirteen, and was elected state chair by the time he was sixteen.

After being named National Outstanding Teen-Age Republican, Paul came to Houston to attend Rice University, where he was active in student government and chaired the Young Republicans. Paul’s summer jobs (besides construction and offshore oil field work) included working for a national conservative organization in recruiting and mobilizing young people for conservative Republican congressional campaigns in Michigan and Iowa.

After graduating from Rice with degrees in history and engineering, Paul went to work as an engineer in the oil industry.

He designed and oversaw drilling and producing wells in different areas of the country and offshore, supervised engineering teams, and managed multi-million-dollar projects constructing and installing onshore and offshore platforms, facilities, and pipelines.

While working full-time in the oil and gas business, Paul put himself through law school at night, graduating with honors from the University of Houston law school. A licensed engineer and patent lawyer, Paul’s law practice primarily involves oil and gas disputes and transactions. He has been a partner with the law firm of McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore since 2001.

Paul is a lector at the 4,000-family St. Vincent dePaul Catholic Church, where he was formerly president of the Pastoral Council and Committee Chair of the Boy Scout Troop. He also served as president of St. Catherine’s Montessori School, overseeing a multi-million-dollar capital campaign, and served for four years on the board of Incarnate Word Academy in downtown Houston.

Paul and his wife Kathy, married over 30 years, have a son and a daughter, who are both Houston natives, graduates of Franciscan University, and proud Republicans!

In case you have forgotten, the Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club meets weekly from noon to 1:00 pm at the Spaghetti Warehouse, 901 Commerce St in downtown Houston.

I’ve laid out a lot of data for you, now is your chance to use that data and come up with a question for Paul. I hope to see you there.
