You are invited to attend the April Wendy P. McCaw Reagan Ranch Roundtable featuring Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett.
On May 18, 2016, in an unprecedented move to reassure his conservative base, then candidate Trump released a list of potential Supreme Court nominees. Justice Willett's name was on it.
While he is known for his conservative judicial philosophy, his unique renown comes from his active twitter page and robust following.
The cost of the luncheon is $45/person. Full time, undergraduate students attend free of charge (RSVP is still required).
RSVP Today by calling us at (805) 957-1980 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
