Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation announced that Sherry Sylvester, a public policy and political communications expert and longtime senior advisor to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, has joined the foundation as a distinguished senior fellow. Sylvester has extensive experience working in a number of public policy areas central to the work of TPPF, including education, health care, criminal justice, the economy, immigration and lawsuit reform. She will focus on Texas identity, narrative and history issues and will also work with leadership on strategic plan development and tactical communication.
“We are beyond thrilled to have Sherry join the foundation as one of the most seasoned and experienced experts in the conservative movement in Texas,” said TPPF Chief Executive Officer Kevin Roberts. “Her tremendous breadth of knowledge, strong relationships, and effective communications skills will greatly benefit the people of Texas and our mission to keep Texas Texan. We look forward to having her good counsel make an immediate impact on our ability to influence the direction of the state and the country.”
“I have been a fan of the Texas Public Policy Foundation for over two decades and have watched them become the leading conservative think tank in the nation,” said Sylvester. “The vision, vigilance and commitment of TPPF leadership over the years has resulted in public policies that have created prosperity, freedom and opportunity for every Texan. I look forward to being part of their work going forward.”
