Williams hits on popular GOP positions in Rotary speech
May 01, 2013, 2:00 pm by James Walker
Roger Williams endorsed a litany of familiar conservative ideas and proposals Wednesday in a speech at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Burnet.
Williams, who represents Congressional District 25 which includes Burnet County, criticized President Barack Obama’s administration and enthusiastically endorsed economic, small government, health care, immigration reform and gun control positions popular among many Republicans.
"Our friends don’t trust us and our enemies don fear us,” Williams told local dignitaries and Rotarians, whose meetings traditionally are non-partisan in nature.
Success in the 2014 off-year elections and the 2016 presidential election is vital for Republicans, the first-term congressman told the audience.
"We’ve got to get the right guy or gal in 2016 and we’ve got to win in 2014,” Williams said.
